Light switch and Sensors

Post by Vesuvious911 » 26 Feb 2018 19:23

Hello all,

I am trying to set up my z-uno to be a light switch and have different sensors like a door and temp sensor.

I am stuck however, I have the channels setup

Code: Select all

ZUNO_SETUP_CHANNELS(
  ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_TEMPERATURE(getterTemperature),
  ZUNO_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL_HUMIDITY(getterHumidity),
  ZUNO_SENSOR_BINARY_DOOR_WINDOW(getterDoor),
  ZUNO_SWITCH_BINARY(getterLight, setterLight)
);
The binary switch channel isn't being transmitted to HomeAssistant. I can see my temperature, humidity, and the door sensor, it's just not creating the switch channel which is for a light. I'm not sure what I am missing. Because if I take out all the sensors and leave just the binary switch, it works and I can see it in HomeAssistant and toggle it. If anyone has any tips let me know. Thanks

I suggest you to make Switch Binary the first in the list. Not sure how HomeAssistant is doing with Z-Wave spec, but looks it is sensetive to the type of first channel.

I did this, and I got it partially to work. The switch now shows up in HA but it seems like it isn't transmitting the data, and it also seems to kill the other channels. Z-Uno should be able to do both though correct? It should be able to be a switch and sensor all as one, do they have to be on specific pins or anything?

I've had similar issues for, as of tomorrow, three weeks now and getting nowhere...

When it comes to outputs Z-UNO is outstanding.

For inputs, crickets... you hear them... it's all I hear... :(

Here is a good description of how to do that in Vera

At least Tillsy is happy now ;))

But I assume HimeAssistant is not doing well with channels. Does it work for multichannel devices? Does it allow templates to be selected/edited?
