TrickleStar Z-Wave USB Controller
« on: September 26, 2008, 05:28:09 pm »
Hi,

Was wondering if anyone had tested the above mentioned device with LMCE?  Am keen to know of cost effective solutions - esp for the European market.  At the moment I only know if the Seluxit viaSENS Home Controller - which is NOT very cheap.

best regards,

Sam

Sam,

The Tricklestar stick and remote are both working well with Hari's latest builds from the svn.

Totallymaxed,

Can you point me to a location online where I can purchase the Tricklestar products? I've been to the manufacturer's web site, and I've e-mailed them, but no joy.

Thanks,

Mike

You can get the Tricklestar products from http://www.zwave4u.com/ or alternatively from my company too if your located in Europe and want some assistance with your ZWave.

Happy new year!

Hmmm... not sure who if the US variant is shipping yet. Email Tricklestar on that and ask for info on US based resellers.

Happy New Year!

Hello all,

I've some problems to use my new Zwave acquisition:

1 Tricklestar Remote Control 200ZW-EU-W
1 Tricklestar USB Adapter 300ZW-EU-W
1 HomePro ZDP230 lamp module
1 HomePro ZDR230 appliance module

I've install the lastest zwave driver (from Hari)
The USB Adapter is reconized

I've setup the module using the SIS mode, I've find in the wiki.

All configuration give me the good lights but after a reload router, nothing change in the ZWave device tree.

I don't understand what's happend.

Can anyone give me some help ?
