Eltako "Baureihe 14 – RS485" (Enocean) Debugging

Hello @Philipp14 I have managed to scan all devices with the latest version v0.1.20 of eo.man.
The USB300 is not recognized as a gateway.
I loaded the generated yaml. file in Home Assistant and changed the gateway manually to USB300.
After I assigned the sender ID and the receiver / Aktor ID to the devices, I was able to switch the devices and also received the status messages.
Since I also changed the name, the changed devices were displayed as additional devices in the device list. I then deleted the Eltako hub and created a new one.
Unfortunately, it no longer worked.
The USB300 was recognized on port 1 and port 2. It looks as if instances of the USB300 have been created.
However, I only connected one USB300. The devices were distributed across the ports / instances. Even when I swapped the USB port of the USB300, I could no longer control any devices.
After I imported the backup, everything worked again, although port 1 and port 2 are still recognized. Unfortunately, the duplicate devices are now there again.

Is there a way to delete a port / instance?
Or could it be something else?

I am grateful for any help.

Hello @omxgit,

actaully I should need to reastart HA inbetween but maybe the port is still blocked from the previous config and restart could release it.

Many gateways support two serial interfaces one is for using it like was want to and the other interface is to program the chip on the gateway. For some gateways even both ports work, for others only one port is working.

Hello @Harrier,

can you try to click on the entity name itself. For me an popup windows appears where you can switch it on.

(in this example light is disabled otherwise default color would be yellow/orange)

Hello @tden159,

can you tell me what message was send before? The integration tried to send any command and that seems to be not valid for ESP3 (USB300). Most probably I do the translation from ESP2 to ESP3 not correctly.

It there something working regarding the shutters? Can you move them?

Opened ticket:

Can to tell me where i can see which message was sent? It seems that the advaned logging is also not working with ESP3 messages.

Regarding the shutters, no, nothing works.

edit: sorry didnt reload after changing the logging settings in the config. These is a logging entry:

After restarting HA the Shutters now do somehow work…! My bad i guess. Thanks for your help anyways. Ill try some more stuff with the USB300 and give some feedback!

No worries.

Here is the logging doc in case you need it. Simply set everything to debug

Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a similar problem. Every time I update to version 2024.5.x, my gateway no longer connects.


After importing the backup to 2024.4.x, this problem no longer exists…
Does anyone know this problem and possibly have a solution?

Reloading the Integration helps for now.

Thanks for the hint. It now worked for me by reloading the Eltako app in HACS.


I am currently trying to add a fgw14-USB into an exisiting eltako system based on FAM14 with multiple F4SR14 and FSB14. It was setup by the company who build our house. To test the system I have connected my laptop to the FAM14 via USB and PTC14 and am listening for switch events.
And in parallel I have the logs from HA activated to show the traffic on fgw14-USB.

The HA log is receiving something, when I press a physical switch. But when I send button events via HA, PTC14 is not receiving anything. It seems like the packets are not send to the bus or have some wrong format and are dropped by PTC14.
Is there anything I am missing or that I could check, before I jump into decoding the bus protocol?

HA logs:

Hello, @teeheee
I had the same problem with the 00-00-00-xx IDs. I have entered the hex ID of the actuator. This worked for me. I still had my actuator IDs from an IoBroker installation. But I can also read out my IDs with the Log Viewer. I have the following entry in configuration.yaml

When I press a physical switch, I get this information from the Log Viewer.

In the following example, you can see how the IDs looks in my configuration.yaml.

I hope it helps you.

Hi Oliver,

thank you for your help. I tried your suggestion, but it did not work. I still cannot switch the light and PTC14 is not showing any events when I press the HA button.
Just to make sure we are talking about the same things, here an image of what I am trying:

When I press the teach button in HA I do not get any events in the right field of PTC14.
And for the events to be detected by PTC14 the id of the light and the sender should not play any role, right?
For me it seems like there is some filter active, that is blocking packages send from HA to the eltako bus.
Is there some other way to verify that FGW14-USB is really sending packages to the bus?
Maybe I got a broken TX line.



after reading my own post I checked my wiring and noticed, that I forgot wiring the hold line to FAM14. Should have read the instructions until the end. Now everything is working.
thank you for your help.

Hello @teeheee,

Unfortunately, it is quite complex to create the configuration. Therefore I’ve started to develop eo_man. You can use it to detect all devices and to auto-generate an example configuration containing your ids and all the fields you need. So far the teach-in function is only for bus devices supported.
