Z Wave Module and still using GPIO
#1
Hi.

Just realized that the Z wave module is connected to the full GPIO Sad
Is there anyway you still could use any GPIO pins (for input / output) when the Z wave module is connected?
Is it using all of the pins ?

Also very disappointed that the Z wave module makes it impossible to use the Pine64 case (lid wont fit)...

regards,
bang

hi bang, the Z-wave module is a uart(x) device; that is, it is controlled ( in the case of the module that plugs into the PI bus ) by uart(2) on device /dev/ttyS2.

The module does not have to be plugged into the bus pins with the adapter;  it may be connected ( with proper knowledge ) to the uart of choice ( uart(2) pi bus, uart(3) euler bus, uart(4) euler bus ).

The only pins that are required is the Vcc, ground, Tx, and Rx pins.

The Z-wave modules are serial devices.

Thanks!

If I just had taken the time to have a closer look at the Z Wave modul and the adapter I should have realized that my self Smile

So if the adapter was better I would have been able to use the GPIO AND fit the lid....
There isn't by any chance an adapter that's already doing this Smile ?

The other connector (EULA ?), is it possible to use this as an input (detecting hi/low) just as easy as the GPIO? If so, what pins should I use and how is the reading?
