Cannot query or set Z-Wave parameters

I am bench testing a Enerwave ZWN-RSM2-PLUS and having some problems.

I excluded it and then included it with no problem. It creates 3 nodes.

ZW021_1 On/Off Power Switch

ZW021_001_1 On/Off Power Switch

ZW021_002_1 On/Off Power Switch

The micro switch is less than 10 feet from my ISY994. I can click on the On, Off and Query and the relay will operate and the Event Viewer shows the query. If I operate a Switch that causes the relay to operate it does not update the status in ISY. But if I do a query it gets updated. So this indicates the ISY can communicate with the device.

Parameter 3 controls Unsolicited Report. The default value is 0, disabled, and 1 send broadcast.

If I try to query parameter 3 as 1 byte I get Z-Wave Command Failed. And the same if I try to set the parameter.

I tried using the REST Interface via browser and get 404 Failed.

Has anybody else used this device and got it working?

Does UDI have any suggestions?

Z-Wave version 4.55.00

Boot-loader version 1.03

Firmware and UI are both 5.0.14

I did and I just did another one, but it did not help. I only have 2 Z-Wave device and they are all in the same room with my ISY. No device is more than 12 feet from my ISY, so I would think they should all be able to communicate with my ISY even with out doing a heal.

As I said I can click the On, Off and query and they work so my ISY was able to communicate with the device to accomplish that.

Could the problem be because the device is a PLUS and the Z-Wave controller I current have in my ISY is not?

This is whay I asked the question in the Z-Wave 500 thread.

I am sure you know more about Z-wave and your product than I do, but I don't see how having a range extender would help and where I would put it in the same room. The room is 12x12 and the ISY is located on the North wall. There is a Plug-in Dimmer Switch on the middle of the East wall and a Motion Sensor on the South wall. The Micro Switch is basically in the center of the room. on my test setup in the open, not in a Switch Box. So, it is about the same distance between the ISY and the Plug-in Dimmer Switch, about 6 feet. The Micro Switch shows the ISY and the Plug-in Dimmer Switch as neighbors. So there are basically 2 paths the single can travel.

If the ISY cannot communicate with the Micro Switch to query or set parameters this close, then it definitely will not work after I put the Micro Switch in a ceiling light fixture in another room.

I don't understand why the ISY can communicate with the Micro Switch to do On, Off and general Query, but cannot communicate to do a Parameter Query.

Is the singal level different or the data is bigger?

Today I did a lot of searching about the Micro Switch (ZWN-RSM2-PLUS) I am having problems with. It seems like the older firmware version setting Parameter 3 to 1 enabled status broadcasting. But in a later version, not sure what version I have, you cannot set that parameter any more like you use to. Now it has to be done by associating it with group 2 and then setting the parameter via a driver, that was stated for another Controller.

One place it is documented like this:

GRP     Max Nodes

1          1                    Z-Wave Plus Life Line - Switch Binary Report

2          3                    Status Report_EP1: Switch Binary Report

3          3                    Status Report_EP2: Switch Binary Report

Is there anyway to accomplish this in the ISY?

Hi @jca001

Have tried adding ZW021_002_1 On/Off Power Switch as a controller to a scene?  This will associate ISY to group 2 of that device (as well as any other Z-Wave responders in the scene).  I have to say though that there has been inconsistency with some Z-Wave devices in their reporting of groups supported, but hopefully they have done this correctly with this device.

After you do this, its sounds like you should be able to set parameter 3 as desired.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Thanks for the information. I created a scene, but added the main node and did not change it to a controller and it did not work. Then I re-read your post and deleted the Z-Wave device from the scene and added the one you specified and made it a controller. I did not get any errors, but the node had the green "11011" icon on it. I tried to force it to write the changes, but no matter what I did, the icon stayed in place. Watching the Event Viewer, it showed it woke up the device and tried to update, but did not indicate an error.

The same day I received the New 500 Series Z-Wave daughter board and installed it. Because I only had 2 other Z-Wave devices, I did not worry about saving them and just started over. After I added the other 2 devices, I decide to try a different Z-Wave Micro Relay just to make sure the new board works OK and it did with the different Micro Relay.

I have not had time to try the original Micro Switch again. I will update you when I do.
