Fresh installed ZWave 1.4 not working - what do I miss?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f328f241120>

Hello everyone,

I installed Home Assistant on a fresh SD card (standard procedure for dummies like myself https://www.home-assistant.io/getting-started/).

My hardware:

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B V1.2
Razberry Z-Wave Plus 5th gen chip ZM5202

I edited /mnt/boot/config.txt to contain both lines:

dtoverlay=uart1
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt

In my configuration.yaml:

zwave:
  usb_path: /dev/ttyAMA0

OpenZwave.log says:

What is my mistake? What do I miss?

I would really appreciate any hints!!!

HI,

same problem here with the same Hardware.

i tried HO last year and i had the same problems but i could be solved like in this link:

but with this version i didn’t solve the problem.

any ideas?

Thanks
Martin

I have the same issue. Tried

dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt
enable_uart=1

But I only get DriverFailed, as above.

I’m receiving exact the same error after updating Home Assistant OS from 5.9 to 5.10.
My setup is similar to yours:

  • Raspi 3 Model B+
  • Razberry GPIO Board

Obviously the hassos update has reset my config.txt file! So I attached the SD Card to my windows PC and added (again) the following lines to the end of the file:

# Disable WiFi
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi

# Disable Bluetooth
enable_uart=1
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt

# razberry
dtoverlay=pi3-miniuart-bt

But it doesn’t help even after restarting the host.

Please Help!

Hi Folks!

I have the same configuration at work.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B V1.2
Razberry Z-Wave Plus 5th gen chip ZM5202

and running Home Assistant OS 5.10 / core-2021.1.5

After new installation and reloading snapshot, everything but Zwave was running.

Following this for the RPi3 dosen´t help:

But I found this thread and this led me to the solution.
Looks like the dtoverlay arguments changed over time and now also for RPi3 you have to use the RPi4 lines of code in config.txt.

So I added:

dtoverlay=disable-bt
enable_uart=1

(in that order, in the above thread you find it disordered or mixed with RPi lines)

After boot-up Zwave was running instantly.

So its is definetly not an OS issue.

Hope this helps!

Wow, this was fast! Yesterday I wrote about a wrong description for RPi3 and today it is fixed.
Thanks!
