How to extract information from the module into the debug screen?

 

i tried this: no return, empty fields

 

model1 = fibaro:getValue(238, "model");
manufacturer1 = fibaro:getValue(238, "manufacturer");
productinfo1 = fibaro:getValue(238, "productInfo");
serial1 = fibaro:getValue(238, "serialNumber");

 

fibaro:debug("model1 = " ..model1);
fibaro:debug("manufacturer1 = " ..manufacturer1);
fibaro:debug("productinfo1 = " ..productinfo1);
fibaro:debug("serial1 = " ..serial1);

Hi @samuel,

 

this is because those fields are usually empty!

 

If you go with your browser to this address http://<YOUR_HC_IP>/docs/#!/devices/getDevice

 

there you can see everything that you can get from one device. Here is example for my Vision siren:

As you can see from above example, information that you was trying to get is for most devices set to empty string.

If you want to know what brand/make/model a device is, you'll have to retrieve "productInfo", using the API, then decode that. Sometimes that's enough, but to detect variants you'll also need the firmware version.

 

Before going in to more detail, what are you trying to achieve?

    Use the api, like:

     

    http://your_ip/api/devices/your_device_id

     

    All devices have productInfo. Only recent Z-Wave Plus devices have serial number. Some devices, like MultiSensor 6 from Aeon have sometimes bogus serial number.

     

    What are you trying to do?

  • to extract the serial number, if not possible, it just have to open the dinrail case and look at the label on the module~ i was just trying to find an easier way :(

    OK. Did you try what I said in a previous post?

     

    http://your_ip/api/devices/your_device_id

     

    So get the ID from the master device (device properties page) and go to that URL.

     

    You'll get a JSON human readable summary of device properties (though it can look pretty unreadable :-) ).

     

    Search for "serial"

    BTW what I say is a variant of what mr @Sankotronic said. What he did was "prettify" the result.

     

    Here is a part of the result of one of my devices, a Fibaro "Dimmer 2". This one does have a serial number:
