P1-dongle P1-dongle

This describes the Z-Wave device P1-dongle, manufactured by BeNext with the thing type UID of benext_p1dongle_00_000.

P1-dongle product image

The P1-dongle supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is also able to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

Overview

The P1-dongle sends smart meter data wirelessly to your controller, helping you get insight of your consumption and things like the overall yield of your solar panels. The P1-dongle can connect to smart meters that support DSMR (Dutch Smart Meter Reader Protocol) eg. all smart meters with a P1-connector.

LED Status Information

  • Ready to install: LED pulse once per second
  • Including: LED pulse twice per second
  • Excluding: LED pulse three times per 1.5 second
  • Include Successful: LED on for one second
  • Ready and operating in a Z-Wave network: LED continuously on
  • No ready and not included in a Z-Wave network: LED pulse once per second

Inclusion Information

  • Put you controller in inclusion mode
  • Connect the P1 Dongle to your Smart Meter (use a power source when needed)
  • The P1 Dongle will switch to Network Wide Inclusion automatically

Use the button to switch the P1 Dongle to Inclusion (LED pulse twice per second) or Exclusion / Reset (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second) mode

Exclusion Information

  • Put your controller and the P1 Dongle in exclusion mode (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second)
  • The dongle will exclude from it’s former network and reset to node ID zero
  • If the P1 Dongle wasn’t included in a network before, this procedure will act as a node reset

Use the button to switch the P1 Dongle to Inclusion (LED pulse twice per second) or Exclusion / Reset (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second) mode

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the P1-dongle -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Electric meter (kWh) meter_kwh Energy Number
Electric meter (watts) meter_watts Energy Number
Electric meter (kWh) 1 meter_kwh1 Energy Number
Electric meter (watts) 1 meter_watts1 Energy Number
Electric meter (kWh) 2 meter_kwh2 Energy Number
Electric meter (watts) 2 meter_watts2 Energy Number
Gas meter (G_Cubic_Meters) 3 meter_gas_cubic_meters3 Energy Number

Electric meter (kWh)

Indicates the energy consumption (kWh).

The meter_kwh channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (watts)

Indicates the instantaneous power consumption.

The meter_watts channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (kWh) 1

Indicates the energy consumption (kWh).

The meter_kwh1 channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (watts) 1

Indicates the instantaneous power consumption.

The meter_watts1 channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (kWh) 2

Indicates the energy consumption (kWh).

The meter_kwh2 channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (watts) 2

Indicates the instantaneous power consumption.

The meter_watts2 channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Gas meter (G_Cubic_Meters) 3

Indicates the gas use in cubic meters.

The meter_gas_cubic_meters3 channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 1 configuration parameters available in the P1-dongle. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
4 Baud Rate Baud rate: the rate the device sends data between the smart meter and z-wave

Parameter 4: Baud Rate

Baud rate: the rate the device sends data between the smart meter and z-wave Set BAUD rate value * 100. Values in the range 0 to 40000 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 1152.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_4_2 and is of type INTEGER.

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The device does not support associations.
