Developer Mode - Listen for events

What am i doing wrong here? I’m trying to listen for zwave events/notifications so I can start to build my integrations but i never see any in the log. Am I doing this right?

I have zwavejs configured fine and i’m able to turn lights on and off from within HA. I’ve triggered a bunch of value changes and scenes but they don’t show up as events here.

See the list of supported event types in the docs: https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/zwave_js/#events

Ensure your devices support those types of events. You will not get an event for everything a device does.

they do support those. For example I’m looking for scene activation events from a scene controller.

I’ve tried zwave_js_notification and zwave_js_value_notification

I must be doing something wrong?

Scene events (both Activation and Central) arrive as zwave_js_value_notification events. Make sure you don’t have any whitespace in the text box or it won’t work. Otherwise, you can watch the driver logs to see if scene events are actually being emitted. https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/zwave_js/#how-to-access-the-z-wave-logs

I checked the zwave logs and I do see them.

I’ll have to dig more. I assume I should also be seeing the events when my lights are turned on and off (the lights do have an association to report realtime as this was working on Homeseer)

Switch example

2022-11-04 18:30:56.884 INFO Z-WAVE: Node 49: value updated: 38-0-targetValue 20 => 58
2022-11-04 18:30:56.885 INFO Z-WAVE: Node 49: value updated: 38-0-duration 0s => 0s
2022-11-04 18:30:56.886 INFO Z-WAVE: Node 49: value updated: 38-0-currentValue 20 => 58

No, you won’t see events for the switch turning on and off, that’s what entity states are for, unless you use the trigger platform events, which are not visible in Dev Tools.
