wow! a lot happens in a few days, was away for a bit.
my zwave devices arrived so hopefully should get to play with them in the next few days.

btw does anyone know what the extra connector on the ZCU201 is besides the pwr and USB?

I also noticed that there is a new unit ZCS201 available, which is direct RS232 (I think)  8). Does anyone actually own one of these, or did experiments with it?
We have ordered some of those for testing here... will report back once we have them ;-)

Of course, I could not wait on that  ;)
My ZCS201 should come in tomorrow, I'll check it out and report on the results. Supposedly it really does have a serial connector, so we'll see what happens. A previous thread (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=2766.msg13509#msg13509) mentioned the ZCS201, but refers to the USB connector! Hmmm... I am hoping that was a typo!  ;D

Mark there are two models of the ZCU201.... one USB and one serial. Hope you get the version you want ;-)

Actually, the models can be told apart by the third letter. I got a ZCS201, not a ZCU201!  ;)
where did you get that beast from? i was searching for ages..

news from the Z-Wave front:
after some device tweaking and package installation (mysterious indeed) with domodude we got the ZWave device to run with the ZCS201. As domodude has no primary controller, too, we have to wait until the shippings arrive for further tests.

best regards,
Hari

Hey Hari thats great... when you get a chance can you post the steps you needed to do to get the ZCS201 working? I will then test that here and we will try and get it into the 0710

we simply did a "ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/ttyS_ZWAVE_0" and "UpdateAvailableSerialPorts.sh" and used that devicefile in the device config, because of some obscure reason the manually added device did not like the "/dev/ttyS0" port..

I'll keep you posted,

We should get that added to the SVN somehow so that it can be easily chosen by users. With the new common SVN coming that should be easily achieved ;-)

some progress with Domodude and his ZCS201: we were able to download a device to the ZCS201. More tests to come (some problems with transfer of the full config).

hope to get my ZTH200 tomorrow for further tests with the Seluxit dongle.

Hari

LMCE's ZWave supports the devices. It doesn't know scenes from the controller. In fact in ZWave controller scenes can only be transfered to identical controllers because they all do the UI very differently (and most are really awful).

If you have one device that is all you will see in LMCE. Once its there you can name it and build scenes and scenarios around it.

Did you add the device from the web interface or from the wizard?

I'm really encouraged that we can add a serial ZWave device since the Leviton is serial, and has the feedback from the Leviton switches.

works for me with the Seluxit viaSENS Homecontroller, a ZTH200 and a ZDP200 plug.
Download configuration works perfect (dongle flashes red). That created a child device that is now fully controllable!

Yippie, ZWave with Linux in Europe ;)

You beat me to it!  ;)

I will try all three dimmer plugs in the same group on the homepro controller, and then upload the config. How did you do your config transfer to lmce, Hari?

Mark


only transfered system configuration as suggested by 1audio. As i have only one plug i don't have multiple groups.

1audio,

I get those messages for ALL child devices in all my coding too.
From what I can tell, they can be safely ignored.
38 is Lightswitch Dimmable, 37 is Lightswitch ON/OFF, 1820 and 1813 I'm not sure about..

HTH,
