Im using OpenRemote on my QNAP NAS TS-459 Pro.'I have a Aeon Labs USB stick as controler.
I also bought, as a start, a universal sensor Fibaro FGBS321 that I intend to use to use to monitor the status of our alarm system (NO circuit), and also to measure temperature using a DS18B20+ temp sensor. fgbs also has a NC circuit but I dont intend to use this.

OpenRemote finds two nodes. The first I guess is the controler. And then it finds one more which is identified as a BinarySensor (seen in zwave-debug.log).

But Im unsure of how to handle the multiple possibilities of the fbgs321 in open remote.

I created a device for the fbgs321.
And a command to read status from it.
But how do I set which of the statuses (NO, NC, or any of the four possible DS18B20 sensors) to read when they all seem to be on the same node?

I seem to be missing something fundamental here.

I tried creating a sensor in range -100 to +100 and displaying it as a label in the GUI. But it only sais N/A.

Any help is much appriciated.

I seem to be missing something fundamental here.

No, not you, but openremote is missing quite a bit. The present Z-Wave implementation is very limited. The good news is that they seem to release a much improved implementation this month.

Ok, thanks.
Does that mean that in the mean time, the Fibaro FGBS321 is useless? Or can I still use one of its sensors?

I can't say for sure. My guess is that at best only one of the binary sensors will be available. It is a nasty device. If it gets supported at all, make sure that you attach all the sensors you intend to use before doing the inclusion. You can't change those on the fly. If you do want to change, you will have to re-include the device.

A new Z-Wave version will be released very soon which has support for multi instance devices like the Fibaro Universal Binary Sensor FGBS321. It will also be possible to configure the required associations (group 1, 2 and 3) and parameters of the FGBS321.

I could imagine that the old implementation is able to receive state changes of the first binary sensor instance if the device sends an unencapsulated (no instance info) basic command. If you use the old implementation you have to use a separate tool in order to configure associations and parameters.

Ok, thankx. I'll be waiting then... No preassure
