Very cool. Do you have any experience or insight into how Z-Wave and EnOcean wireless protocols coexist in the different supported geographies? I know the European frequencies are nearly identical.

Thank you for this!

Hi,

I am sorry but I cannot give you this kind of information, I used USB300C dongles to simulate EnOcean devices witch transmits on 315 MHZ and didn’t encounter any problem.

Very good news ! Glad to see MCV contributing to plugin dev.
Does somebody already test that enOcean dongle on a USB (powered) hub ?

Have a nice WE.

Hi Andrei, does your plugin work with a vera2 ?
I connect a usb300 and it seems to work with your plugin, can you confirm.
I try to learn a contact sensor but it isn’t recognise. What to do to help you for more device. I’m a EU customer.

Hi all,

I have experienced this plugin and I wish first of all to thank Andrei for his work.
That allow us to use EnOcean devices on Vera which is a quite big feature!

I propose to share my experiences on EnOcean use under Vera lite and my ideas to improve plugin.
Hardware:

  • USB300 EnOcean controller
  • 2 Vimar double switch

Installation:
Plugin installation is quite easy and it take me around 2 minutes to include my 2 switches \o/
The switches come with 6 auto created light devices with “ON” or “OFF” status.
They are named by internal IDs:
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-B : Left switch
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-A : Right switch
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-AIBI : Will be ON when both switches are pressed ON at same time
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-AIBO : Will be ON when A switch is pressed ON and B switch is pressed OFF at same time
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-AOBI : Will be ON when A switch is pressed OFF and B switch is pressed ON at same time
(EO-01) 00-FF-FF-FF-AOBO : Will be ON when both switches are pressed OFF at same time
Note that I have returned the switch up side down to get “ON” on high and “OFF” on low

That allow to manage differents scenarios easily and/or secret functionalities :slight_smile:

Testing:
Testing is quite OK. The switches are quite reactive and scenarios are easilly launched. There is no big differences with standard Zwave devices.

Trouble shootings:
While testing I found 2 limitations:

  1. On the 4 “virtual” devices depending on both switches, there is no physical way to set them to OFF. I mean if you press both switches ON, the “AIBI” device will be set to ON and… that’s all, you have no harware way to set it back to OFF state. You can do it by software only.
    => My first idea is to manage the scenario to set back the device to OFF when complete.
    => A second way might be to correct it as point 2 below.

  2. This feedback is quite more disturbing. The thing is the soft light device does not fit well with the hard switch device.
    Taking and example with:

  • A light on a fibaro Zwave switch
  • One switch on the wall linked to Fibaro switch
  • One Vimar switch

When I click on Vimar switch, the light is set to ON.
When I use the original switch to switch OFF the light, the light goes OFF (normal behaviour until this point).
Here I get the wimar switch ON under the Vera but the light is OFF.
At this point, if I switch ON Vimar switch, nothing happen. The reason is the switch (in fact the Vera light device) is already ON. So to light up again, I have to switch OFF/ON the Vimar switch.

=> One temporary solution would be to create a scenario which align light real status with all the switches linked (i.e. a scenario trigerred when light goes OFF which set switches to OFF and a scenario trigerred when light goes ON which set switches to ON). But that’s quite tricky :slight_smile:

=> One real solution should be to have a switch device under the Vera. The switch could be managed with 3 states : ON/OFF/Nothing pressed. This way (looking like the roller shutter switches) would allow to send several “ON” orders in a row. Note the Vera already physically receive several “ON” orders each time you press the switch (you can see the packets in the logs) but it’s not modifying the Vera light device status (as already ON…).

Anyway thanks again to the author which allow us to us battery free devices.
I stay available if you need more informations, details or testing (and I can do it in French if needed :slight_smile: ).

Regards,
Maikinoki

Really not thrilled there is no activity on this thread. There would seem to be a huge potential to utilize the occupancy sensors for lighting control…

Why surprised? It was started by somebody from MCV after all! :wink:

Hi gilles,

Sorry for the late response, but I was waiting for some EnOcean devices to check what you asked. I tested the plugin with a double rocker pad on a Vera 2 and all seems to work fine. I was waiting for the devices because the development for this plugin was made with 2 usb300c dongles ( one connected to Vera and the other for simulating devices) and I wanted to check this with some real devices. Please check the list below to see if you devices is supported.

Here is a list with devices supported by this plugin:

Products the gateway would listen to: EEP profile
Occ sensor a5-07-xy
PTM switch f6-xx-yy
Window/Door Sensor d5-00-01
Temp Sensor A5-02-xy
Profiles to transmit from the Gateway: EEP profile
PTM switch f6-xx-yy

As I was saying, those devices have been simulated with a usb300c dongle, any feedback is much appreciated.

@ Maikinoki : Thank you for your review, I’ll try to work on fixing the problems you mentioned, but for now my “to do” list is kind of full. As soon as I will clear some thing from my list, I will start working.

Hi Andrei,

It’s my turn to apologize as you wrote me some informations about esp3 plugin.

I recently bought au double switch from vitec as maikinoki and had a strange behaviour.

I’v only got three devices in vera instead of four.

Strangely , I can see all the telegrams as Maikinoki see.

How to solve this ?

@Maikinoki, What do you excatly do to include vimar device.

Only one button, or whatelse ?

PS: Maikinoki merci pour tes ?crits.

Hi all,

@Andrei : Do not hesitate to ask me if you need some more details. I don’t know how the devices type are managed in the plugin but in fact I think there is just a “switch” type to create (if not already existing) to manage ON/OFF/None status. A scene controller type should match too (as for keylogs) to allow managing double switch as buttons 1/2 and 3/4.
I understand you get plenty of work :slight_smile:

@Gilles : I did this test quite a long time ago but I’m quite sure I did not do any tricky thing :

  • Set EnOcean gateway device to “Learn”
  • Push a button (you see in Vera header messages there is activity on EnOcean plugin)
    Then all devices (6 as explained) are created. Maybe I’ve done a refresh but that’s all.
    What are the 3 devices you get ?

A thing I have tested is to delete all the switch devices created. Then when you do the inclusion as before all is automatically recreated all 6.

P.S.: De rien :slight_smile:

Installed the plug-in and paired a Leviton WSC04-IRW occupancy sensor.

Looks like the telegram gets sent, but VERA never trips. Message “'EnOcean Plugin : A valid telegram has been received ! Target device : 00-04-3F-D9-07-01 Occupancy sensor”

But motion device doesn’t turn red like it should…

Confirmed over a few days. EnOcean adapter works, Occupancy Sensor works, telegrams and sent and received, but the plug-in is not correctly tripping the motion sensor to make the occupancy actionable. We need an updated plug-in?

Hi,

Since today evening I get following error :
EnOcean Gateway[54] : Startup Lua Failed

Someone reported the same in a comment of a tutorial on this plugin :

Is there anything changed ???

In the log I get the following:
50 03/05/14 6:20:28.120 luup_log:54: EnOcean ESP3 Gateway startup <0x2b347680>

For me last actions were to add some Oregon devices by the RFXCOM plugin. Nothing related apparently…
I don’t know how to find what have been updated.

Well damn, now 20 minutes later, now I am seeing this too. And neither a re-load or reboot will make it go away. The only thing I have done this afternoon is update LUUP files for an unrelated plug-in…

Hi all,

Plugin should work now, please someone confirm this.

  • Andrei -

Hi,

it works now :slight_smile:
Thank you !

Hi all,

[s]I have desactivated/reactivated the plugin auto update and reboot the Vera twice but I still get the error.
Is there anything else to do ?
My release is 1.1, should it change to 1.2 in plugin details ?
After several reboot I don’t see difference in plugin, is there a way to force auto update ?
Should I reinstall 1.0 release (the one available in the store) ? Will I loose all my devices ?

I can update files manually but in the file browsing I do not find any update :
http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_enocean-esp3-gateway/browser[/s]

Release is back to 1.0 so it should be OK (I’m not at home so I can’t really test)

Hi Maikinoki,

Try update to 1.2, it’s now available on apps store and see if this will fix your problem

  • Andrei -

The plugin works fine in 1.2 now :slight_smile:
