I have begun to establish a Z-wave mesh network with HA, running Hassio on an RP3. I am using the Aeotec USB Z-stick Gen 5 and believe I have the network up and running successfully, but am struggling to get the Aeotec Trisensor ZWA005 running correctly. After initial configuration, and getting values, it just stopped reporting.
My only other Z-wave devices are Aeotec and all are working as expected except for the Trisensor. See all of my Z-wave nodes in this screenshot from Z-wave Control Panel:
The nodes were not added as “secure” nodes (if that matters). At this moment you will see that my Trisensor is showing “CacheLoad”. I have seen where others mention needing to pull and reinsert the battery to get this device to start reporting again, but I have not tried that yet because I don’t see that as a good solution.
Here are the entities associated with Node4. Initially they reported values and value changes, but just stopped.
Things I have tried include manually waking up the device, ensuring the Binary Sensor Report is enabled, restarting the network, heal, test node, test network … pretty much every option in the Z-wave control panel … and also restarted Home Assistant.
What I have not done so far, because I don’t know that much about Z-wave yet, are changing various config’ options.
My questions, to anyone who would be so kind as to respond:
If you have had success with this device, what did you have to do? Are there specific configuration for the device or controller that I should try?
I am assuming that “burlar” is the motion sensor … is that right, or am I missing something?
I included my new devices as regular nodes (not secure) … should that matter?
Maybe this device is not the best one for me … any other sensors that you would recommend with my Hassio/Z-stick configuration?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
