2/ Configure the service

Once the service is installed, you have to configure it.

By default, the value is “/dev/ttyUSB0”.

Check the tuto “How To : Find the serial port” to find the right serial port.

3/ Adding a device

Depending of your controller, you have different possibilities.

For the Zwave ZStick V2 :

You can unplug the controller and put it in “learn mode”

Use the “Controller Commands” :
Pulse Station include some commands to directly add or remove a device without unplug the controller.

Go to the zwave service and click on “Controller Commands”, the following popup arrives:

Click on “Add a device”, a command is sent to the controller to put it in learn mode.

Once it’s done, you will have a message to tell you that your device is correctly included.
If it’s not the case, do this procedure again.

4/ Configure the properties
