I'm glad you have managed to get things working.  I did start an upgrade to the zwave system some time ago but didn't complete it.  Once that is done the openzwave interface should have better knowledge of a lot more devices.

I got it to work.

After lucking out with the MD (raspberry 2), not even getting a view under Automation -> zwave, I moved my core from inside "hide away location" so I don't get the dropping issue, in light of my minimal switches.

Deleted the existing zwave device, then added back the zwave device to the core, no luck either.

Thus I took the stick out, excluded the switches, reset the stick and deleted the zwave interface from the core. Restarted the core, then plugged in the stick, followed the prompts and was able to see it in Automation -> Zwave as node  1. Then included the lights switches, grand total of two, plugged it back into the core, followed the prompt, nothing. I also was not seeing anything in automation -> zwave.

I then restarted the core, the wizard came up again, followed through the prompts. When I checked automation -> zwave, saw the nodes, node 1 being the stick, node 2, one switch and node 3 another. When i checked the status, for the nodes, both node 2 and 3, showed they are lnuxmce  devices and the template number, so that was new and hopeful. Checked under lights and they were listed there, great. Added them to the rooms, reload and regen and it worked

Have attached some pics on ow it looks. Something to note, I have a GE and an Inovelli switch. Both work, but when you click on the node icon, the GE values especially for label switch, says true, the Inovelli that value is false. Listing also attached.


Thanks guys

That log is the path to it on the core.  You can check var/log/pluto/89_Light_Switchonoff.log on the MD or the initial location on the core for that log.

Tried adding the lights manually and setting the port from what I saw.

The port 2, seems to be the controller, as it had the brand name.

Tried 4 and 5, but no luck in controlling the light.

Also, I am running a disked MD, but the light log goes to

/usr/pluto/diskless/71/var/log/pluto/89_Light_Switchonoff.log

I don't have a directory /usr/pluto/diskless

The DCrouter log, has the following

Got the Pi 2, built as an MD.

Deleted the interface on the core, then reload, followed by rebooting the core itself

Then added the zwave stick to the MD,within the space and closer to the two lights. Now I get no node drops, but no luck adding stuff, restarted everything twice already

Is it possible, either command line or through web site, to add the light switches manually?

Working today, to get my Raspberry 2, working as an MD.

Three failures thus far, first just giving me a Rainbow Screen, 2nd and 3rd attempted, failed for dpkg errors. Went and got a new SD card as it's a disked MD, on the 4th attempt.

I have run my Aeotec zwave (usb with inclusion) on an MD for some time without issues. I went this route after having issues with the configuration being pulled through from the zwave adapter to my LinuxmceVM as well as signal strength with it in the core sitting downstairs in a rack. The MD was not an RPI one, it is an PXE booted traditional MD so not certain that your RPI option will definately work, but I can't see why it wouldn't. Only draw back was the slight delay for the MD to boot and initialise the zwave adapter during any reboots etc. when the MD was not active. I run all my MDs 24/7 otherwise though.

Of note, I also have a Aeotec mini-mote as inclusion as I didn't always have devices within range of the usb adapter and it made it easier than using webadmin. Remember though the more devices (hard wired I find work best) you have, the better the zwavenetwork performance will be.

Hope thats useful.
Cheers
Garath

With one of the devices, I believed I know why it fails. My house has a lot of concrete and steel, downstairs, seem the signal not reaching as the core, is two walls away (loading block, with steel inside, that are filled with concrete, they are load bearing walls) away from the node 5 switch. Previously with the older gen stick, before moving, I used to used a USB extension cable, seems it either dead or not functioning with this one.

Any recommendation on a USB extension cable?

If I move the zwave stick, to a raspberry pi MD(not built yet),  that is in the same room with the two switches. Technically should be no issues, but any draw back, would have like to keep it on core?
