Differentiating ZW5 Version of FGK-101



I am trying to develop a custom handler for an open Z-Wave platform which supports BOTH the old Z-Wave version of the Door/Window Sensor FGK-101 and also the newer Z-Wave+ version (aka ZW5) FGK-101.

To do that, I need to reliably differentiate FROM WITHIN THE HANDLER the 2 versions.

But there are multiple commands for getting Z-Wave / Device informations, and I just don't know what is the proper one to use and the proper attribute to check to ensure a 100% accurate and robust differentiation : ZWavePlus Info, Manufacturer Specific, Version, etc...

Any help appreciated

  • @tinman : thanks tinman, that seems simple.

    Could you please confirm that this firmware version for hardware corresponds to "applicationVersion"."applicationSubVersion",  the 2 attributes you get from the "VersionReport" answer after sending a "VersionGet" command (0x86).
