Adding devices to zwave js ui

After I have successfully installed all my Zigbee devices in Zigbee2mqtt, I now want to connect all my Z-Wave devices to Home Assistant.
I have noticed that the installation is a lot more complicated than zigbee2mqtt, but I think everything is running properly because I don’t see any error messages in the log.

Zwave JS has been removed from installation and Zwave JS UI is running.
Zwave controller is Aeotec Z-stick 7

Because I come from Homey, I used the Aeotec range extender 7 as a guinea pig to add.
Unfortunately, this does not happen as automatically as it did with zigbee devices.

I choose to add via the nodes manager because it is not possible via QR code scanning :man_shrugging:.

No matter how many times I try, the device is not found.
I’m probably doing something wrong, so my question is what I’m doing wrong or what I can do or adjust to get it working.

  1. You have to exclude a device before you can use it in another network
  2. Make sure you have the correct region set for your controller.
  3. I believe you have to setup https in order to scan with the camera but you can also take a picture with your phone and upload that

After a complete restart of my home assistant mini pc all my devices were able to be added.
Problem is solved.
