Device parameters

There is no option to change manually parameters of the device (w/o template).

Don't know if on previous versions it has been possible!?

Please login or register to see this spoiler.

 

Could be that some option should be unlocked?

    Thanks, so looks like Fibaro's beta bug... just to verify, you're refer to Yubii (not HC3)?

    the picture you posted  looks like zwave 3 engine, upload template button .. when you click on it, you will get asked for your own json formated template, right?

    Yes, that's correct... any idea how to continue?

    There is some default template elsewhere?

    @cag014 that's easy hehe, click on "download template" from any other device you have and learn how they has been made. Based on that, and user manual for your device, create new one and upload. Attached Fibaro MS 3.2 and Walli Switch json files (they are reach an options, so good examples), just in case you don't have any other device added yet.

    First time after you uploaded json template, reset values might not work as there are no values. So just click each every parameter to read values.

     

    Please login or register to see this attachment.

     

    Sure you can of course immediatelly set desired value

     

    There is no check if the template is for that specific device, you you might add as well no supported things :P, this device here do factory reset on param 1, and i uploaded template from motion ... who cares, just for test

    (and no, it does not make sense to create generic template with params 1 to 255, with value -2^32 to 2^32 ...)

    Before you upload new template, i recommend to delete the old one first, because Fibaro leaves the old templates (in user dir, as well in backups) when you upload new one

    First of all thanks for an excellent tip,

    That's easy? Just to change one parameter I need to create an entire template?

    I'll  try to use code to set parameters... based on device user manual...

    maybe not entire, but just minimal like

    Please login or register to see this code.

     

    such template will work, as long the device accept value between 1 and 255. If however some values in that range are not allowed, one will get z-wave protocol error displayed and wrong value will not get set. Example "send basic cmd" is normally something between 0 and 99 and it can be as well 255. So better is enumerated templated like this:

     

    Please login or register to see this code.

     

    for parameters with bitmask that will work as well, but it sucks to "think/calculate", so better to have specific one type (example taken from my template for ZHC5002)

     

    Please login or register to see this code.

     

    and of course there is scale and step and unit, which can be used, so yeah, lot of things one can define to make template more readable and easier to configure. And for sure one can add translations as well, english seems to be mandatory.

    Sure, the simple one (as long the size of param match and values not out of range) is good enough for lazy implementation.

    Hi @tinman

    Thanks for your explanation, but I have a question.

     

    On my Philio PST02-B Motion Sensor I have to set the parameter 7 to 22 (I read

    Please login or register to see this link.

    that is the way that it can work well).

    In device manual parameter 7 is like that:

    Please login or register to see this image.

    /monthly_2022_07/image.png.6f0fad3183ff8e11255d66f5eaafe49b.png" />

    So.....how can I set it to 22 using the new Template method?

    I have to use the "bitmask" instruction? How?
