Open Zwave initialize

I went by the AIO instructions at

Had to muck with symlinks to get OpenZwave to start but worked through that.

Now I can’t get OpenZwave to recognize my AEON LABS Zstick 2.

my dmesg:

I stop HomeAssistant and start OpenZwave:

Is the stick on /dev/ttyUSB0?

What does ls -al /dev/ttyUSB0 show?

[email protected]:/srv/homeassistant/src/open-zwave-control-panel $ ls -al /dev/ttyUSB0
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Sep 16 18:22 /dev/ttyUSB0

You’re sure that’s the stick?

What does sudo id homeassistant show?

So, permissions are right, but lshw doesn’t tell us about the device links in /dev.

Insert the stick, run ls /dev/tty*, remove the stick, run ls /dev/tty*. In the second, one tty device will be missing, that’s the stick.

With the stick:

[email protected]:/srv/homeassistant/src/open-zwave-control-panel $ ls /dev/tty*

without stick:

This may be operator error:

I clicked USB in OPENzwave web interface and see this after clicking initialize:

post: key=dev data= /dev/ttyUSB0 size=13
post: key=fn data=open size=4
post: key=usb data=true size=4

What else should I be able to see in web interface?

This is a stick that was in a machine running HomeGenie. Shouldn’t the stick already know about nodes?

Do I need to reassociate it with the zwave devices it has been running under HomeGenie?

Don’t use OpenZWave’s control panel, you don’t need it and it may just complicate things for you.

The stick will know about the paired devices. Are you saying that none show up in your HA dev-states? Do you have a zwcfg_*.xml file in /home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/?

I do not:

[email protected]:/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant $ ls
automations.yaml configuration.yaml customize.yaml deps groups.yaml home-assistant.log home-assistant_v2.db scripts.yaml tts

But third try putting:
zwave:
usb_path: /dev/ttyUSB0
into configuration.yaml and I am seeing zwave devices in home assistant web interface.

thanks.

I guess creating that file takes awhile. I just checked:

[email protected]:/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant $ ls
automations.yaml customize.yaml groups.yaml home-assistant_v2.db pyozw.sqlite tts zwscene.xml
configuration.yaml deps home-assistant.log OZW_Log.txt scripts.yaml zwcfg_0x01853264.xml

I think it’s only written to on shutdown from memory
