I’ve snapped Open-Zwave Daemon (ozwdaemon) regards to Home Assistant’s move away (?) from it’s built-in Z-wave integration towards the “Z-wave to MQTT” integration - what they call Open-Zwave Beta.
I’m struggling to apply the network key to my device, which is a Aeotec Z Stick Gen5 (not the revised model that supports RPi 4). After a lot of testing ang googling I’ve read that it’s a problem with this stick. Many of my devices require a secure connection, such as my lock However, I’m not sure if this is the case.
Ozwdaemon says “valid network key”, but it doesn’t work. It will add nodes insecure.
When it’s connected and both the MQTT- and Open-Zwave integration is installed in Home Assistant, the config tab of the stick says “Network key: 0”.
I’m located in the northern region of Norway and getting ahold of a new stick isn’t that easy. I had to order from abroad and it can take days or weeks to arrive.
I’m therefore hoping that some of you have a Z-wave stick and could help out testing this snap.
It’s found in the edge channel.
snap install ozwdaemon --edge
It doesn’t run as a daemon yet, so you can simply run it with
snap get ozwdaemon -d for settings
PS! I’m aware of the environment variables printing etc upon execution. It will be removed.
