initial z wave install

  • drop z-wave jar file into addons
  • in the OH shell ("ssh -p 8101 openhab@localhost"), install the serial transport
 feature:install openhab-transport-serial
  • check the serial port for the z wave stick, typically /dev/ttyACM0 or thereabouts
    • make sure openhab" user is added to "dialout" and "tty" groups (should be automatic)
  • use habmin to discovery the z-wave stick
    • add the USB serial port used
  • for locks, make sure no existing keys exist in the lock.
  • in habmin, hit discovery on the z-wave bridge device (upper left corner), and hit the locks "A" button shortly after
    • the lock device should be discovered in the inbox
  • check the discovered device, it may take a little bit for it to be completely discovered
    • in the attributes section, the security check mark should be checked green
  • if not checked, use habmin to unpair device, hit the A button again to complete un-pair.
  • discover the lock again, check that using security is checked
  • make sure the pantry outlet switch (z-wave device) is plugged in, it serves as a bridge to the door lock, since that cannot be reached from the Z-Wave serial stick directly
