This would be something to interface with EventGhost

Yes, sure, I made a plugin some time ago and I am using it since then, works fine

- you can control switches on/off and set dim levels
- you receive status updates as events when statuses are changing
- I have sensors that gives temperature readings and input events
- you can monitor the communication with devices, you get events if you loose communication

To receive events as notifications when they happen, without polling, I have added a python script in the Pi and this is executed by the Z-Wave when statuses are changing. Earlier I send them out on the network via UDP broadcasts, today I have changed to use MQTT instead and combine that with my MQTT Client plugin in EG. This works really well.

From my log:

Code: Select all
08:46:39   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_3_Instance_3_temperature, 14.25'  #a temperature sensor
08:46:45   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_3_Instance_2, false'  #an input triggered
08:46:46   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_3_Instance_2, true'
08:46:57   RaZBerry Z-Way: Set Binary Power: ZWAY|2  #a switch turned on
08:46:58   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_2_Instance_2_off, 0'
08:47:00   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_2_Instance_2_on, 255'
08:47:05   RaZBerry Z-Way: Set Binary Power: ZWAY|2  #a switched turned off
08:47:06   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_2_Instance_2_on, 255'
08:47:08   Main./eventghost/zwave 'Device_2_Instance_2_off, 0'

That looks very nice!

But you didn't share it yet, did you?

I made a poll for it earlier, but no real interest at that time so I kept it personal. Do you have one? If so it makes sense to share, I can put it up in the plugin section

this is nice!

I have a z-stick that i've been wanting to create a plugin for but I haven't found a good place to get the Zensys Serial API figured out to implement it. I mainly want sensor input from window/door sensors and motion sensors.

Not yet, but I consider buying one ;)

Not yet but if you have a the RaZberry board I can share it. I have had it in operation since then (I made the first version back in May 2013, still working fine).

Best regards

Hi, Yes I got a razberry board last week, it would be great to get it to interact with eventghost, im hoping to slowly switch to z-wave from 433mhz stuff.

OK, here is the plugin

RaZBerry Z-Way_01.07.2013.zip
(46.89 KiB) Downloaded 119 times


To start it will allow you to control switches and dimmers

Next step will be to fix so that the RaZberry sends you notifications when the status of changes. That step will be a bit more advanced since you have to add a python file in the Raspberry Pi and edit some javascript code as well

But lets take it step by step

Thats great, thanks, got that working.
I also have a fibaro motion sensor, will the more complicated bits allow me to get the data from that?

Yes, I believe so. To prepare, you could make some screenshots of your devices. Use the web gui of the Raz, select expert UI, 'Device Control', make screenshots of 'Switches' and 'Sensors' so that I can pre-configure the files a bit to help you to get a good starting point
