Turn on the light by associated motion sensor

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I am experimenting a little bit with associations (not used them too often before)

I am wondering, is it possible to turn on a lilght on a motion sensor breach event if my sensor sends these commands:


Group                            Command Class                                                          Commmand

1(Lifeline)                  COMMAND_CLASS_NOTIFICATION                           NOTIFICATION_REPORT

                                  COMMAND_CLASS_SWITCH_BINARY                       SENSOR_BINARY_REPORT

                                  COMMAND_CLASS_SENSOR_MULTILEVEL              SENSRO_MULTILEVEL_REPORT

                                  COMMAND_CLASS_BATTERY                                    BATTERY_REPORT



2(Control)                 COMMAND_CLASS_BASIC                                         BASIC_SET


I have tried to associate through enpoint0, group2, but it does not turn on the light



Does anyone know some good tutorial on understading associations, nodes, reports, groups in associations etc..

Thanks in advance

I am going to oversimplify this, hoping to save you from going down a rabbit hole.


My rule of thumb: forget about associations. They are a remnant from the past. 15 years ago, "gateways" did not exist and a Z-Wave controller looked like a giant remote. It didn't have a fancy GUI. So simple associations like turn on and off or dim were very important. Because of the backwards compatibility of Z-Wave we still have (some) direct device to device associations.


That said, you can do some fancy or useful stuff... Did you now that you can program the +and - on a fib keyfob to directly dim up down a dimmer module?


Key issues are: status reporting, toggling, transitivity, secure mode. And I probably forgot something
