z-wave device classes
« on: November 13, 2008, 07:35:55 pm »
Hello;

I want to buy zensys full development kit v5.0 but I am a bit confused about z-wave programming and I have some questions about it:

•   Is it possible to create a new z-wave class or add some features to existing classes? And I want to know limitations for the customer of development kit to develop device classes.

I want to design devices that accept both schedule (such as period of work) and simple command (such as on/off) from a central controller so I must be able to define a class with these features.
Is it possible? If yes how I can do this?

•   How can I receive future device class from zensys after buying development kit?

•   How can I get the current status of device such as dimming level for a wall mount switch or thermostat temperature?

If it is possible, please send me further information about z-wave device class specification and programming of z-wave modules.

Thanks for your attention.
Best regards.

this is not really related to LinuxMCE development, I'm sure you'll get an answer from Zensys or on forums like http://zwaveworld.com/forum

•   How can I get the current status of device such as dimming level for a wall mount switch or thermostat temperature?

regarding that one, there are commands in the command classes to request that information.

Thanks a lot.
Do you have any PDF that describe "Z-Wave Device Classes" such as:
       "Zensys, INS10247, Instruction, Z-Wave ZW0102/ZW0201 Application Programming Guide"
       "Zensys, SDS10242, Specification, Z-Wave™ Device Class Specification"
Best regards,

you are not really asking me to publish copyrighted material from some random party, do you?
