z-stick aeotec gen5 cant get it working....

Post by Puma » 10 Mar 2018, 07:07


I bought a zwave z-stick aeotec gen5 for home automation use on the B3.

Clean install debian stretch.

dmesg | grep acm
[ 10.760884] cdc_acm 1-1.1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
[ 10.782763] usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_acm
[ 10.788449] cdc_acm: USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters

Seams that z-stick is working on ttyACM0 without problems

ls -al /dev/ttyACM0
crwxrwxrwx 1 root dialout 166, 0 Mar 7 11:15 /dev/ttyACM0

When i install openhab2 I cannot see the z-stick and serial port to add to openhab.
Z-wave is turned on in openhab2.
What am I missing?

Tried home automation but cannot see z-stick as well as controller....
Spend hours searching and testing but cannot see / control z-stick......

I can buy a raspberry pi 3 but would like to get it working on the B3....

On laptop z-sticks works (windows 7) so stick is OK

ps couldn't get domoticz for testing due to fact I could not find any ARM32 package

It's probably because there are some missing modules in the stretch kernel. I'll take a look.

You may like to try create a symlink named `ttyUSB868` (or whatever number you see fit) towards the ttyACM0 device. Chances are that the software ignores it because of the `wrong` naming.
