Avoid routing

Post by dawiinci » 10 Nov 2017 18:01

I want to use the Z-Uno without routing. I set this:

ZUNO_SETUP_SLEEPING_MODE(ZUNO_SLEEPING_MODE_SLEEPING);

But it seems like there is something else missing. How can I do this?

What do you mean by "without routing"? Setting the ZUNO in "mode_sleeping" will create a wake-up device which does not act as a router for OTHER devices. The messages to and from the device can still be routed by other devices in the network (if needed).

Do you have a specific reason to NOT want a routing? This is one of the advantages of ZWave compared with other systems and I am curious why someone want to inhibit that feature.

I wondered about that question too... @daviinci, maybe you are saying that you found out your device still acts as a router? The only explanation for that (that I can think of) would be that you did not exclude and include the device, after the code change... BTW Z-Wave uses the terminology "Routing Slave" to describe a device that can use the mesh network, it does not mean it acts as a repeater. If it is on mains, it can be a repeater, but if it is on batteries, it does not repeat messages. But the type is only determined at inclusion time. Does your green LED blink or not?

I think you cleared the confusion for me.

I was assuming that capable of routing means it routes other signals whereas it only routes own signals over other devices. The device is included for the first time and it is set up as a battery device. So I guess this already categorizes as not actively routing other signals.

Thanks

I am glad I could help. On a Fibaro Homecenter or a Z-Way controller, the battery indicator gives a clue. If your device displays a battery gauge, it is acting as a battery device, goes to sleep (or is a flirs) and does not route messages for other devices. One somewhat peculiar device is a Fibaro Swipe: it never routes messages, not even when powered on USB.
