So with the news that Samsung is gonna brick my v1 SmartThings, I thought I would give Home Assist a try. Unfortunately I’ve had no luck switching away from ST in the past; no other Z-Wave controller seems to work with it.
I got a Raspberry Pi and Aotec Z-Stick Gen 5, had no problem installing the software and Z-Wave JS and getting the stick to work, but as usual while my lock would connect and be successfully interviewed it completely fails to control or update. Any attempts to change the lock state simply time out in the log.
It shows up as an “Allegion” lock instead of Schlage, although I suppose they’re more-or-less the same thing? I wanted to be able to get a better sense of what’s going on, so I installed ZWaveJS2MQTT and nothing about the device controls make sense:
None of these controls seem to have anything to do with operating the lock.
Can anyone suggest what I might need to do to get this to work with HA? Thank you.
