The z-stick s2 does have a built-in inclusion controller, right? Or is it something else I need?

I happen to have another PC controller too, would it help to use both at the same time ? The z-stick for inclusion, while the other controller is on the PC? (because I must unplug the z-stick to put it in inclusion mode). Not sure what I'm saying makes sense?

Do I need to pair those controllers or something?

If it can help, here is some technical documentation from the manufacturer: heating.danfoss.com/PCMPDF/Z_wave_living_connect_VDHMB202.pdf

yes, you can pair your stick with the other controller. What you're saying makes sense. The z-stick would stay on the PC and you'd use the other controller for inclusion. That way LinuxMCE can talk to the danfoss when you're including it.

Hi hari,

Thanks for your help with this issue. However, it appears the problem comes from the firmware version of my devices: version 3.02 is only compatible with the Danfoss Link, according to this post (among others): forum.fibaro.com/viewtopic.php?p=5971

So I'm currently trying to exchange them or get my money back. Obviously, I won't be able to return my two PC controllers which I have bought from another reseller.

So for anyone reading this, be cautious as these Danfoss devices have the same reference (014G0002) as other devices that are working correctly, but the firmware version makes them compatible ONLY with the Danfoss Link (wall controller, not controllable from a PC). At least that's what I've learned so far.

I can buy there on the german Ebay, for an interesting price, but whats up with this firmware issue?

Is there a way to check before buying?

Regards,
Anton

Edit:
I see that Danfoss has made a windows application, to make the Danfoss RA-Plus-W independant. Perhaps this tool is also usable on the Living Connect?
