My woes with Z-Wave
#1
I am just cluttering up the v2 Z-Wave thread, so I figured I would start my own considering all of the issues I am having:

To recap - I am using the VRUSB and RF Installer Tool coupled with the VRC0P.

Devices - Linear WADWAZ-1, Linear WAPIRZ-1, Aeotec DSB29, Aeotec DSB05, Kwikset 910 Deadbolt.

All that I am trying to do currently is setup a 'sensor network' using Z-Wave devices. I can buy these things cheaper than dirt (practically), and I haven't yet found a non-zwave solution to the locks.

Fully working - The Linear WADWAZ-1.

Half working - Kwikset 910. This guy reacts to commands for lock and unlock from CQC, but I have yet to get consistent status. This could be a network issue.

Not working - Linear WAPIRZ, Aeotec DSB29, Aeotec DSB05. Which is strange, because both Aeotec devices were working previously.

I think I am going to buy 4 or 5 of the Aeon Labs Extenders to place around so I can get good coverage for these battery powered devices, but for now the ones I do have will live in the same room as the VRC0P.

Awesome. Some new behavior - I added a second WADWAZ and now the entire network is broken. Both my 'working' WADWAZ and Kwikset lock are now red in the field browser.

I am going to give it an hour and double check after the sensor checks in.

If you want to open up your VRC0P, I can connect to it and see what I can see. The locks are beaming devices so the driver should be able to query them on startup for info. To start with, you could cycle the trace enable (to clean it out), then do a rescan, and post the output. That should show me what is going on.

OK, let me get it set up. Same info as always. Which I don't remember - I'll PM you.

OK, that's useful info. What I see is:

1. It finds all of the units ok.
2. Only one of them is queryable, which is the lock apparently. So it does that.
3. The lock response, but the message arrives before the VRC0P acknowledges that it has been transmitted.
4. The lock sends back a doorlock response.

So, all of that looks ok. The only possible gotcha on the lock is that in my previous testing it always sent back an alarm message, not a door lock. It certainly sends an alarm to report changes. I set up the device info file to indicate that the driver should expect alarm messages, so the driver may end up thinking it never got a reply.

I'll connect and try it.

OK, do I need to do anything? I can manually lock/unlock and use the keypad to do the same.

I just connected to your system and configured the VRC0P and the lock, and the lock is connecting fine and shows status. It also appears to be responding to commands.

I didn't configure any others since I don't know exactly what they are. What do you have the other units configured as?

OK, but what about manually? if i walk up to the lock right now and lock and unlock it, will it report?

the other devices are simple door/window and motion sensors. i got the WADWAZ working after i manually set the association, but dont think its been long enough for the newly added ones to wake up and get their configs.
