NOOB: Z Wave discovery in OpenHAB help needed
#1
Hi All,

I've bought the Pine64 2GB and Z Wave module (EU version) to automate my home using OpenHAB.

As I am a total NOOB at this, I decided to first create a small Z Wave network using 2 Domitech Z Wave smart LED light bulbs only.
I immediately got stuck:
- I've installed OpenHAB on my Pine64.
- In Paper UI on Configureation->Things page, I see the Z Wave Serial Controller: 'online' (connected to /dev/ttyS2).
- I then try to get the controller to get into discovery mode by pressing the big '+', select Zwave binding.
- For 30 seconds it shows a rotating arrow, within that time I put one bulb in discovery mode.
- The bulb does not get 'discovered'.

Am I doing something wrong?
Is there any way to tell if the Z Wave device is really in discovery mode?

Need help here...

Hi JamesWatt,

First thing you need to check is your devices pairing with other controller before, if yes, you require do exclude first.

Hi Klliew,

I cannot check that. 
All Z Wave devices that I have are the Pine64 ZWave module and those 2 Domitech Bulbs (freshly purchased, new out of box).

I only attempted to pair one at a time (I am using only 1 light socket), both are not detected.

In openhab log I see the text '[ERROR] [ve.internal.protocol.ZWaveController] - Neither inclusion nor exclusion was active!'
