By default when installing PulseStation, it will install all necessary drivers for you.
The main question will be “On which serial port is the USB key running”?
You need to know this in order to set-up Z-wave in PulseStation.
1) Verify SSH is activated in the control panel of your NAS. For Raspberry Pi this is enabled by default.
2) Unplug the USB key and reboot your device
3) Now insert your USB key
4) Login to your server via SSH (you can execute following command in the terminal of your computer):
Raspberry pi: ssh pi@ITS_IP
NAS / Linux: ssh root@ITS_IP
And then enter your password.
5) Execute following command: dmesg | grep tty
6) Verify in the output (near the bottom) whether it lists something like:
“usb 1-1.3: cp210x converter now attached to ttyUSB0”.
The ttyUSB0 or ttyACM0 is the serial port to which the usb key is attached.
In PulseStation, install the Z-wave service from the store, then go in the left menu to:
Services / Zwave / Serial port
Inside the serial port field, you need to enter to which serial port the USB key has been attached (see above).
Note: you will need to prefix the serial port with “/dev/”
Eg: /dev/ttyACM0 or /dev/ttyUSB0
Click outside of the input field and the system will ask you to restart the Zwave service, allow it to restart in order to start detecting all your Z-wave devices.
Let it scan for about 10 minutes. If you refresh this page, below “Devices” you will see the new devices being added and details being populated during the scan.
With the edit icon next to the device you can rename it and assign it to rooms.
