Z-wave HA-22 compatibility
« on: August 30, 2007, 09:36:57 am »
I was looking at the fiire.com page today and noticed that they are selling the Intermatic HA22 Z-wave adapter.  I didn't think this was compatible with LMCE.  Is that now the case?  I didn't see any recent changes to the Zwave source, so I don't think so, but maybe they know something I don't

The HA-22 is supported as far as I know... we don't use them though so I do not have any direct experience of this SUC.

Are you sure?  I got this from the Video page on the wiki:

Zwave is a problem right now because the Zwave USB adapters shown in the video are not in production anymore. There is a new model from Intermatic, but there are no Linux drivers for the USB-to-RS232 chip on it. I heard that someone has sponsored the driver development so hopefully it will be added shortly.

It wasn't working with Pluto, and it doesn't seem like LMCE support has been added quite yet.  Fiire mentions a driver on their product page here:
http://shop.polywell.com/fiire/product_info.php?products_id=77
but they don't have a link to it.

I don't know if this an LMCE driver or what.  I guess I should just call, but I wanted to see if anyone else knew first.

Well no I am not 100% sure.... I also was partly guided, possibly incorrectly, by the fact that if you go to the Fiire side of the Polywell site and click on zwave in the side bar it takes you to a page about various Intermatic zwave products including the HA-22!

I will do some research on Monday and get a definitive answer and post that here then.

Sorry to say that the HA22 is not currently supported :-(

Any news on if this is supported yet?

It seems like this would be a priority considering how affordable it is. 
I have used it with homeseer with no problem (Windows of course).

Or is it because it doesn't have all of the features that other Z-wave interfaces have (so it is not worth the effort)

I am afraid to ask how much someone would charge to write the driver.

Thanks in advance for any info.
