Z-Wave Sensors + Actuators

Post by Andys1970 » 17 May 2018 12:59

Hi there,

I have setup a very simple Gateway using a RaspberryPi running Hassio and have a Aeoteck Z-Stick Gen5.

I am now looking to implement my own devices on the Z-Wave network.

I would like to create a device that is measuring device with a piezo sounder. When a measured parameter exceeds a predetermined level, it will beep an alarm. It will send out a message that will cause remote devices to beep an alarm.

I have read something that states that a Z-Wave device can be either a Sensor or an Actuator - I think my requirements mean I need my device to be both Actuator and Sensor - Is this possible?

Thank in advance.
Andy

No, it can be both. I.e. multisensors or Qubino devices, which have both switch and sensors. If you're looking to make your own custom device, then it worth to have a look on Z-Uno device, it can be programmed your own way. And there are plenty of examples on developers page.
