I’m finally moving to the new ZWaveJS2MQTT integration. Everything is working, but I am struggling to identify the same settings I’m familiar with in the ZWaveJS2MQTT Control Panel to the entities created within HA.
I.E., I have several AEON Labs ZW132’s - each have dual switches and a ton of configuration parameters. Most parameters are actually in triple - a
-0 for the dual switch as a whole,
-1 for S1 (switch 1), and
-2 for S2 (switch 2). The ZWaveJSMQTT Control Panel shows a configuration of
[3-37-0-currentValue] Current value, for example - which I can immediately identify as Node 3, parameter 37 (0x25), and
-0 for the switch as a whole.
After these were linked into HA, I’m now struggling how to identify which HA entities relate back to which ZW parameters. I found a round-about way through the UI to see the HA device from a HA entity, from where I can then see the ZW Device ID (node #). However, how can I determine which ZW parameter each entity is associated to?
If I look into HA’s
core.entity_registry file, I can find a given
entity_id, and then an associated
unique_id - which appears as
1234567890.3-37-0-currentValue, for example. Here,
3 is my ZW node ID, and
37-0 is the configuration parameter. This is critical for me to determine that the
-0 here is the dual switch as a whole (vs.
-2 for S1, or S2, respectively). However, how can I determine the same through the HA UI? Or alternatively, efficiently rename (script/API?) the HA entity IDs so that I can recognize them?
Each one of these dual switches (w/ energy monitoring) is pulling in 19 entities into HA. I have well over 100 entities here that I need to determine how to better recognize / manage / rename - even just for going through and assigning friendly HA “names” to.
