Cannot add Eurotronic Spirit Z-Wave Plus

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f77ff8146c8>

Hi Everyone,

I recently set-up a new Home Assistant system based on a Pi4 and hassio. I have a Zigbee USB stick (
and a hue light bulp, which is all working fine. Additionally, I added a Z-Wave stick ( Sigma Designs Controller Z-Wave Plus). I configured the Z-Wave Integration and can see that the network is starting fine.

Now I am trying to add a Thermostat (Eeurotronic spirit z-wave plus) by clicking the “Add node” button. Unfortunately, the node is not found and I get the following log-output:

I do not have any other Z-Wave components yet, do I cannot check if the problem is with the stick or the thermostat. It looks to me like it is the thermostat though, so does anyone have any experience with that one or might be able to spot the problem in the log I have posted?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Did you already try removing the node first, then adding it?

@freshcoast thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I cannot remove the node since it is not shown as entity in the states in the dev tools.
Is there anything I am missing?

You can still remove it.

Ok, thanks for pointing that out.
How can I remove a node that is not listed as a entity or shown anywhere?

Look over the instructions I linked. Same procedure as removing any node. Control Panel -> Remove Node.

Thanks again. I tried that, but I cannot remove it normally since neither the device nor the controller think they are linked and I cannot put the device in unlinking mode. So I tried the manual “Remove Failed Node” approach but cannot find the device in the first place in the dev tools as entity.
Is there anything else I can do?

So just to be clear, you went to the Z-Wave control panel, pressed the “Remove Node” button, then on the device you held down the Boost button for 5 seconds? Did the OZW_Log.txt show that the remove failed?

Which Z-Stick did you buy? Since you have a Eurotronic Spirit, you also bought the EU frequency USB stick?
