Users / Re: Adding zwave lights
« on: October 22, 2018, 03:35:37 am »

I have the same Z-wave stick.

From trial and error and off the top of my head, the way i include devices is take the stick out of the host computer, go to the device one wishes to include, press the button on the stick until it flashes indicating inclusion mode, put the light or other device into inclusion mode. Once the devices are included the usb stick should flash more rapidly telling that the inclusion was successful.

If this is a light, some lights do not have an inclusion button. With this all I did was fit the light but before turning it on, bring the usb stick to the light you want to include, put the stick into include mode then turn the light on. This should include the device.

Sometimes I have had trouble including devices or things get messed up. if you have problems, try excluding all the devices first, by this i mean put the controller and device into exclusion mode, this is a long press and hold on the remote and it should flash differently, the same process above for inclusion but excluding the device and start over again including them. Most devices are different on how they are included/excluded so check the manual of each device for more details. My last light didn't come with any so I had to figure it out..

A last resort is resetting the controller from the "Soft reset controller" in the Advanced ZWave page of the lmce admin. then deleting the ZWave devices. Note that this doesn't automatically exclude the devices, lights, sensors that have been included so those devices need to be excluded even after a reset of the controller

So if you have any problems I would try excluding the devices first and starting over. If the device has been used with a previous controller, try excluding it with that first and including with the new one.

I have reset the controller before this will remove all the devices the stick remembers, but the devices seem to remember and you also have to exclude them first. Remember to quick reload router.. Sometimes you will need to reboot if there is a problem and ZWave gets stuck.

Sure someone with better knowledge will chime in :)


EDIT: I knew I had something wrong. The part about Soft reset isn't right, I had to enter a specially crafted command to send to the device which did a hard reset but I cannot remember that off hand. Still the exclusion or reset of other devices needs to be done.

OK. Great.

I guess this is a little old and confusing

Can I make a new page Disked_MD or ?

I know disked MD process works because I have one running right now but I think there are a few little bugs in the deb package post install scripts. Networking doesn't come up which kind of stops everything but I think there is an easy fix :)

Thanks for the confirmation.

EDIT: maybe off topic here but because networking doesn't come up on the disked MD but I would like to know whether network manager is supposed to be disabled (NM has some features that could be good on MD) or to do the config in /etc/network/interfaces. The problem is the interfaces file only contains config for the loopback, not any LAN, and if NM is disabled there is no network at all.

Sorry to hijack your thread.

Is it documented somewhere how to install a disked MD?

I have installed disked MD before many times on different things eventually but would like to get the install process clear in case I'm doing it wrong, I can't find concrete docs on it but follow instructions phenigma provided like for arm but instead installing on a i386 with lmce-disked-md-base for example.

Can you clarify this please?

Kind regards.

Hello to all of LinuxMCE.

I've never been active in many forums but I thought I would introduce myself after being a happy LinuxMCE user for a long time.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who has made the project possible, I was blown away by the video all those years ago and have been hooked ever since.

I never had to post on the forum because I felt I didn't know enough about the project to provide any assistance, any problem I have ever had was easily fixed by searching the forum or wiki to find a solution, which has led me to learn a little about the system over time.

Anyway, thanks to all for such a great project. I am still blown away by what LinuxMCE can do even after ten years.
