Automation works occasionally + other things that I'm confused about

Hello everyone, I have some basic knowledge of this technology but I may be missing some important things so pardon me for any mistakes and please point me in the right direction.

I recently helped a friend and installed a set up a Fibaro automation with the super expensive unit to manage it. I was pretty happy how everything worked out however as a software engineer I always try to find new ways to improve things. That is why the super expensive home unit seemed to be obsolete in my own setup when I decided to automate my house.

I bought a raspberry pi unit and I flashed the memory card with a Hassbian OS. I started adding devices one by one:

Garage:

  1. Aoetec Dual Switch: https://amzn.to/2Yhan5t

  2. Dome motion sensor: https://amzn.to/2X6MCR4

  3. Raspberry PI with Aotec Z Stick
    Hallway 1:

  4. Aotec nano dimmer

  5. Fibaro motion sensor

I added the same cookbook automation template for both rooms: turn_on_light_for_10_minutes_when_motion_detected

Issues:

  1. The garage automation works perfectly in 90% cases however sometimes it takes even 5 seconds to turn the lights on. It’s completely random.

  2. The hallway automation almost never works. I’m actually surprised when the lights get turned on.

  3. The interface seem to be showing old information from time to time. For example when I added a new dimmer it became visible in the system after I rebooted the whole unit. Also after each reboot the HA interface is not showing any devices until a few mins later.

  4. Why the same device is showing under different names in the system. For example it’s showing it under Light, Z-Wave and Switch. Changing the name of one doesn’t change it for the others. I feel like I’m missing something here:

  1. How to properly add a new Z-Wave device to Home Assistant? Should I unplug the Z-Stick from Raspberry PI and walk up to the new module and pair it? Do I have to click on “Add node” in HA before or after I perform the above steps?

  2. What is this button in the Z-Wave panel for?

  3. While adding a new device is there a way to see the live log of exchanging information? That is one part that I liked about Fibaro that it showed right away that it found the device.

Thank you in advance.

Sometimes zwave networks have latency. It depends on the device and how much traffic is currently happening on the network. You may have a device that wont stfu and is crowding the network. That’s the first place I would look.

Post the automation.

Zwave network can take up to 2 minutes to intialize. This is normal. Also, you are running on a pi, pi’s are slow. I moved to a intel NUC i5 and my startup is ~15 seconds. On the pi, my startup was 3-5 minutes.

Many zwave devices have more than 1 sensor built into it. I don’t have that dimmer so I cant speak for the light & the switch being created. I can tell you that the zwave section is purely to show you the status of the zwave node and it’s information. At a minimum every device will have a z-wave node device and the actual device it creates (switch, sensor, light, etc).

I typically:

  1. shut down home assistant & the system.
  2. Walk around the house and add the device.
  3. Start up home asssitant. Typically don’t even have to add the node, it’s already discovered because it’s included on the z-wave network. (unless that process has changed, in which You’d then press the ‘add a node’ button).

I haven’t added a node in about a year so this process may have changed beyond step 3. But step 1 and 2 would not have changed.

It does nothing. It’s a byproduct of groups. You can adjust your interface to remove it. I believe the property is show_header_toggle or something of that nature.

There is a zwave log at the bottom of the zwave page.

Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate explaining everything.

However when I take the sensor off the wall and put it on my desk the automation works perfectly fine. For some reason it doesn’t work when it’s hanging on the wall. I tried to use the built in Fibaro range feature and it shows that it’s connecting directly to the main unit so it doesn’t seem like a range issue. Also there are two other z-wave devices nearby that work perfectly fine. Also, the above automation doesn’t seem to work when the light gets turned on manually by using the switch. What could be wrong?

Everything else I was able to figure out from your answers above but there is one more thing. It seems like the HA control panel doesn’t show the right state of the switches. Sometimes it shows that the light is on when it’s turned off and vice versa.

Thanks again!

That should be switch.turn_on and switch.turn_off.

This can be a number of things. First thing I would check is the states page and verify that Home assistant sees the correct state. If it does, it’s just a refresh issue, refresh the browser and you’ll be good to go. If home assistant doesn’t see the correct state, investigate your zwave mesh and find where the drop outs are.

Are you sure?

I’m ready to give up. I have been playing with this for a week now and I can’t get it to the state where everything works as expected. Since day 1 I have issues with automation working randomly. Then when somehow I fix one automation the other one stops working. For example the garage automation doesn’t work at all but it worked before. There are currently 3 Fibaro motion sensors triggering the hallway light. This is the only one that works 2-3 times a day totally randomly.

I just checked the log and it looks like there are plenty of errors there:

Okay, I think I found something. I have two motion sensors in the garage that are set to trigger the light when they their status changes to “on”. I’m looking at the stats of the sensor that almost never triggers anything and it looks like it rarely turns off during the day:

It’s in the garage so there is no chance that there is constant motion there.

check the device settings in the z-wave panel. Using the devices user manual, check the parameters in the section circled below


Thanks. I’m going to check it shortly.

Now, I’m trying to get to work room by room. The garage seems to work fine now after I’m using the burglar entity to trigger the lights but for some reason I’m having issues getting everything else to work. In the garage I use the https://amzn.to/2X6MCR4 motion sensor and everywhere else I use the Fibaro motion sensors https://amzn.to/2LA96TM

It makes me think I’m doing something wrong with Fibaro motion sensors. The following Living Room automation doesn’t work at all now although I see that there is a burglar alert in the logs. The first part of the code is the garage automation and then there is the living room that doesn’t work.

Just by looking at the logs it looks like the Fibaro sensor (Node016) gets triggered and sends a message to the Node008 (Living room switch).

Rather than ‘burgler’ I set an option in my z-wave motion detectors to make them send a ‘basic’ report which then gives you a nice binary_sensor entity. You can do it either way but I have found the binary_sensor to be very stable. Not sure what option number it is for the Fibaro as I have Aeotec devices. It will be in the manual though, worth trying.
