Hari,

Excellent! That just makes me want to try your driver again, but previously I had no luck compiling it. A while ago you mentioned a package -- are you still planning this?

You have one taker, for sure!

Cheers
Mark

no package yet, have to dig deeper into "MakeRelease".

For now, I can provide a 32 bit binary for 0710: http://vt100.at/files/ZWave-0.0.1-0710-32bit.bz2

I have in the past mentioned voltus.de to buy Merten Connect z-wave gear. They have a low price, but their customer service (with which I unfortunately have quite a bit of experience) is abominable.... :(

short update:
Playing with LMCE being the primary controller and SIS mode (Node id server). I already can add slave devices and controllers to the network with the dongle. Ideally all remote controllers should work as inclusion controllers in this scenario. Sadly enough the ZTH100/200 does not seem to support the inclusion controller mode and only is working as secondary controller for now (Zaerc suggested a long usb extension cord to be able to add all my devices :-) )

I'm trying to get hold of a Tricklestar remote, they state SIS support on the page and it uses newer library versions. And it should be available in Europe (868Mhz)

The SIS mode seems to be the best choice for a Z-Wave network. Some devices like the RA-Plus-W only work in a network with SIS. And we get the node information frame at the time of inclusion, so we can catch battery powered devices that don't send out a broadcast wake up event.

best regards,
Hari

Hi Hari,

I met with Bernard on Friday very briefly. He left me with a 'Golden' pre-production Tricklestar ZWave stick :-) !! What nice guy by the way and he has a mountain of ZWave experience together with years of experience in the home automation business. Anyway i will test the ZWave stick with your driver on Monday (I ran out of the office on Friday without picking up some ZWave kit to test it with!).

Bernard has Fedex'd me a Tricklestar ZWave remote... should get that Mon/Tues :-)... and I have asked him to send you a unit too.

If your available during Monday, even briefly we could test the ZWave stick on one of our test Cores... let me know if you have some time maybe at lunch?

All the best

Monday will be pretty busy. But I'd assume the stick will work out of the box, if it still uses that pl2303 chipset.

Hi Hari,

I think Bernard assumed the sample remote we purchased would be 'shared' with you - a simple mistake. Anyway i have ordered a unit for you and it should be with you by Wednesday/Thursday I expect.

No problem re Monday. I'll update you on the testing either here or on irc during Monday.

All the best

The triclestar Z-Wave USB-Adapter is now available in the onlinestore http://www.zwave4u.de/.

My question is:

Will this adapter work with the LMCE Z-Wave libary?

Regards Thorsten.

I'm also would like to know that. Because I found that only Seluxit viaSens 100 can work with the latest Z-Wave implementation.  Tricklestar USB Adapter looks nice and it's cheaper twice :)

I found the Seluxit Multisensor which offers motion detection and light level, temperature and humidity measurements. Does somebody test it under LMCE? I suppose that it should work well with Seluxit viaSens 100 PC adapter. But not sure that it'll work with LMCE.

BTW, zwave4u looks very attractive. It offers a lot Z-Wave devices with reasonable price and ships to EU.

the tricklestar works, I've tested it myself, but from what I know it is not yet available.

The Seluxit Multisensor will be supported soon, it is not yet released.

Yeah zwave4u looks good.
