Z-Wave Binding

The openHAB Z-Wave binding allows you to connect to your Z-Wave wireless mesh network. A Z-Wave network typically consists of one primary controller “stick”, zero or more additional controllers and zero or more Z-Wave enabled devices, e.g. dimmers, switches, sensors etc.

There is also a binding specifically for openHAB 2 here.


Connection to the Z-Wave controller is done through the serial port of your host system. USB controllers typically create a virtual COM port to connect to the stick. Please write down the port name before configuring this binding. In case your port name changes dynamically and you want to use a symlink, see Tricks.

Initialization of the binding typically takes several seconds to minutes depending on the number of devices in the network. When battery operated devices are used the binding tries to reach the device first. After one minute the node is marked sleeping. On wake up of the device initialization will continue.

HABmin can be used to configure devices (setting configuration parameters and association groups) directly within openHAB. Alternatively the open-zwave control panel is a good choice to set up your network. Commercial software like Homeseer can be used as well.

For technical reference and implementation: Chris Jackson maintains an excellent technical resource for the ZWave binding on the HABmin Wiki

Binding Configuration

First of all you need to introduce the port settings of your Z-Wave controller in the file services/zwave.cfg.

Property Description
port value indicates the serial port on the host system to which the Z-Wave controller is connected, e.g. “COM1” on Windows, “/dev/ttyS0” or “/dev/ttyUSB0” on Linux or “/dev/tty.PL2303-0000103D” on Mac.
Note that some controllers register themselves as a modem (/dev/ttyACM) on Linux. In this case it is necessary to add user “openhab” to the group “dialout”. Else openHAB won’t be able to access the controller.
healtime Sets the hour of the day when a network heal will be performed. This will try to update the neighbor node list, associations and routes. The actual routing is performed by the controller.
pollingQueue Sets the maximum number of frames in the polling queue at once. This avoids swamping the network with poll messages.
aliveCheckPeriod Sets the time (in milliseconds) between each node health check message. This is used to periodically check if a node is alive.
softReset Set to true to perform a soft reset on the controller during the heal, and when the binding starts. This can help solve some problems with the stick, but it can also cause some new controllers to lock up (eg the ZWave Plus controllers)
masterController This option tells the binding that it is the main controller in the network. This isn’t necessarily the same as a primary controller - it simply means that your openhab binding is being used as the main network interface. If set to true, the binding will configure devices automatically to send some communications to the binding. This would include setting the wakeup class to send notifications to openhab, and set some associations so that the binding recieves notifications of configuration change or alarms.
setSUC Set to true to set the controller to the special role of Static Update Controller, whereby it will be the keeper of the routing table from the primary controller and offer it to all other controllers in the network.
networkKey See Z-Wave Security Testing

Item Configuration

The format of the binding configuration is simple and looks like this:


where parts in [square brackets] indicate an optional component. Usually, only one item is bound to a device, but more items can be bound to a device as well, either for reporting variables, or in case the device consists of multiple endpoints / instances.

The <nodeId> indicates the number (in decimal notation) of the node, to which this item is bound. To find out your devices’ <nodeIds>, either look at the startup log of openHAB, or use other Z-Wave configuration programs like openzwave control panel to detect and configure your setup.

The <endpointId> is only required/allowed when using the multi_instance command class. In case a node consists of multiple instances or endpoints, the instance number can be specified using this value. The default value is not to use the multi_instance command class - the number must be positive and must not be 0. An example of a multi-endpoint device is the Fibaro FGS 221 double relay.

If you’re not sure about endpoint numbering, look in the logs to see if sensor data is being correlated. You may see the following warning -:

[WARN ]  o.o.b.z.i.ZWaveActiveBinding[:459]- NODE 8: No item bound for event, endpoint = 0, command class = SENSOR_MULTILEVEL, value = 51, ignoring.

This indicates that the binding can’t find an item linked to this sensor - often this is because the endpoint numbering is incorrect. If the warning above says endpoint = 0, then the binding string shouldn’t include an endpoint number.

The <command> is optional, but recommended if you have multiple items bound to the same device, or the device reports multiple bits of information. Without the command class, the binding can not unambiguously differentiate different data, so it is recommended to provide a command class. Z-Wave nodes support functionality through command classes. A specific command class can be specified to use that specific functionality of the node. A node can contain multiple supported command classes. If the command is omitted, the best suitable command class for the item / node combination is automatically chosen.

Command classes may support parameters. A parameter is a name=value pair that configures some aspect of the command class on the node or in the binding.

Supported Command Classes

Each node in the network provides functionality in the form of Command Classes. The OpenHAB Z-Wave binding implements the same Command Classes to be able to use the nodes in the network. Not all Z-Wave Command classes are currently supported by the binding. The supported command classes are listed in the table below.

CONFIGURATION Used to set configuration parameters. Normally, this is done through HABmin as most configuration is static, but some devices have parameters that need to be changed via a rule or sitemap. Use the “parameter=” option in the binding string to set the parameter number linked to this item.
INFO This is not a ‘real’ zwave command class, but can be used to get information from the binding about a node and its state. Controller only:

All Nodes:
INDICATOR Show the state, or level of a device, usually through a button LED, or display on the actual device If you use the bit=n (n between 0 and 8) parameter then you can bind Switch Items to individual bits in the indicator value which can be used to turn on and off status LEDs on device buttons for instance.

Parameters that can be added to any item

There are some general parameters that can be added to any command class in an item string. These are refresh_interval=value and respond_to_basic=true

refresh_interval=<value> sets the refresh interval to <value> seconds. 0 indicates that no polling is performed and the node should inform the binding itself on value changes. This is the default value.

respond_to_basic=true indicates that the item will respond to basic reports. Some Fibaro contacts and universal sensors report their values as BASIC reports instead of a specific command class. You can add this parameter to an item to indicate that this item should respond to those reports.

meter_zero=xx.x can be set when using the Meter command class. If set, anything below the value specified will be considered as 0. This allows the user to account for small power consumption readings even when a device is off.

sensor_scale=X can be set for the multilevel sensor class to force the sensor to be converted to a specific scale. This uses the scale information provided by the device to decide how, or if, the conversion needs to be applied. Currently this is only available for temperature sensors. eg. sensor_scale=0 will ensure that a temperature sensor is always shown in celsius, while sensor_scale=1 will ensure fahrenheit.

invert_state=true can be used to invert the state of a multilevel switch command class. eg this can be used to reverse the direction of a rollershutter.

Basic command class

The basic Command Class is a special command class that almost every node implements. It provides functionality to set a value on the device and/or to read back values. It can be used to address devices that are currently not supported by their native command class like thermostats.

When the basic command class is used, devices support setting values and reporting values when polling. Direct updates from the device on changes will fail however.

You can force a device to work with the basic command set (or any specific command set for that matter using a syntax like:

Switch    ZwaveDevice        { zwave="3:1:command=BASIC" }

To find out which command classes are supported by your Z-Wave device, you can look in the manual or use the list at http://www.pepper1.net/zwavedb/ or http://products.z-wavealliance.org/. In case your command class is supported by the device and binding, but you have a problem, you can create an issue at: https://github.com/openhab/openhab/issues. In case you want a command class implemented by the binding, please create an issue.

Battery Devices and Wakeup

One of the questions that gets asked a lot is “my battery device is sending information, so it’s clearly awake, but I can’t change parameters”. ZWave battery devices only ‘wake up’ periodically however they will send their data whenever THEY want. So if the door opens, then a sensor will send its data immediately (otherwise it would be of no use!) and for temperature sensors, or multi sensors, there’s normally a configuration that allows you to configure how often the sensor will send the data, or how much change there needs to be before it will send an update (or a combination of the two).

However, wakeup is different. In the above scenarios, the device is not ‘awake’ - it’s just sending notifications. When a device wakes up, it sends a special message to the binding to say “I’m awake, do you have anything to send me”. We can then send data to the device (configuration setting, parameter requests etc), and the device can respond. When we have no more messages to send to the device, we tell it to go back to sleep (this currently happens 1 second after we send the last message - just to give the system time to respond to any rules etc before the device goes to sleep again).

A device will wake up based on the information in the wakeup command class, which is available in HABmin. If wakeup isn’t set correctly, then we can’t command the device, even though we may receive sensor data etc. The binding will attempt to configure this automatically when the device/binding initialises - it will make sure that the node is set to reference the binding, but in general it won’t touch the time. The exception to this is where the time is set to 0, it will set it to 1 hour.

If wakeup hasn’t been set, then we will never be able to send commands to the device to initialise it, or change parameters. In this case, you need to wake the device up manually. Normally, this is achieved by pressing a button on the device (maybe 3 times). This causes the device to send what’s called a NIF (Node Information Frame) - this is sent as a broadcast though so it’s not routed. This means that the device MUST be able to communicate directly to the controller, so it needs to be close by.

The last wakeup time is shown in HABmin in the wakeup area for a battery device.

One last point on the wakeup configuration node. There is (currently) no way to set the target node - the binding will automatically set it to its own ID when the interval is changed. Some people have used a value of 255 for the target node, or it may come as the default value - this means that the wakeup is broadcast to anyone who wants to listen. This might seem a good idea as multiple controllers can receive the message however, broadcast messages do not get routed, so this only works if the controller is in direct contact with the device which is often not the case.


Note: A new online database editor is being produced. This should make it easier for most people to add and update devices within the database, and will improve support for both the OH1 and OH2 bindings. Please support this here.

The binding uses a database of devices so that it can work around any quirks, or present information about association groups and configuration data. The format for the database is here.

If you are not able to produce the XML file yourself, then please open an issue. The following information is required -:

  • Type and ID for the device - HABmin will print this information when a device is not in the database
  • Manufacturer
  • Reference to the device manual (ie link to PDF)
  • Link to device in pepper1 database (if it exists). http://www.pepper1.net/zwavedb/


The loggers used by the binding, which you can set to DEBUG or TRACE (more verbose than DEBUG) are:

  • org.openhab.binding.zwave

It is highly recommended to turn on at least DEBUG logging whilst setting up and configuring your ZWave network for the first time.

I found the parent page only had items so was missing the needed transforms and rules. I also did not want to accidentally break formatting for other entries.


So far I only have a rule that turns on the Fan if the system has been idle for an hour. A simple effort to keep the air an even temperature/humidity in the house. Here in Florida this will typically only happen late at night.

import org.openhab.model.script.actions.Timer

val String PATTERN = "HH:mm "
var Timer timerFanIdle = null
var Timer timerFanCirculate = null
var Integer ruleRunning = 0

rule "Idle Fan"
    Item HVAC_Fan_State changed to 0
    var String ts = now.toString(PATTERN)
    if (timerFanIdle != null) {
      timerFanIdle = null
    if (timerFanCirculate != null) {
      timerFanCirculate = null
    timerFanIdle = createTimer(now.plusMinutes(60)) [|
        ts = now.toString(PATTERN)
        ruleRunning = 1
        sendCommand(HVAC_Fan_Mode, 1)
        sendBroadcastNotification(ts + "Run Fan to circulate")
        timerFanCirculate = createTimer(now.plusMinutes(15)) [|
                ts = now.toString(PATTERN)
          sendCommand(HVAC_Fan_Mode, 0)
          ruleRunning = 0 ]

rule "Running Fan"
    Item HVAC_Fan_State changed to 1
    var String ts = now.toString(PATTERN)
    if (ruleRunning == 0) {
      if (timerFanIdle != null) {
        timerFanIdle = null
      if (timerFanCirculate != null) {
        timerFanCirculate = null

A second set of rules which simply turns on the heat in the morning (to 63F), lowers it to 60F for mid day, and sets it to 59F at night.

rule "climate_morning"                                                 
  Time cron "0 40 6 1/1 * ? *"                                         
  logInfo("climate", "Temp: " + HVAC_Temperature.state + "; Target: 63")  
  sendCommand(HVAC_HeatSetPoint, 63)                                   
rule "climate_day"                                                     
  Time cron "0 0 11 1/1 * ? *"                                         
  logInfo("climate", "Temp: " + HVAC_Temperature.state + "; Target: 60")  
  sendCommand(HVAC_HeatSetPoint, 60)                                   
rule "climate_night"                                                   
  Time cron "0 30 22 1/1 * ? *"                                        
  logInfo("climate", "Temp: " + HVAC_Temperature.state + "; Target: 59")  
  sendCommand(HVAC_HeatSetPoint, 59)                                   

Z-Wave Security Testing

Many Z-Wave devices communicate with a basic radio protocol which can be intercepted or spoofed. But Z-Wave also supports encrypted communications via the Security Command Class which is used for high value use cases such as door locks. The Security Class provides extra protection to help prevent messages from being intercepted and/or spoofed.

  • Lock and unlock a door lock
  • Reports battery percentage
  • Update Lock status
  • Set user codes

General notes

  • If you are using this code with a door lock, note that the toggle switch on the GUI may not represent the true state of the lock. Please manually check that your doors are locked at night.
  • The Security command classes in openhab are beta, use at your own risk!
  • As with all modern crypto, the encryption is only as strong as the key. Please take some time to generate a random key and do not use all zeros, etc.
  • Door locks have very limited range. This is not specific to openHAB and appears to be the case in general. If the door lock is more than a few feet away from the controller, you will likely need a repeater (appliance module) for reliable communication.
  • The secure protocol has more overhead than normal communications. For example, turning on a light is near instantaneous - you hit the switch in the UI and light comes on very quickly. Secure messages take much longer as there are messages to exchange prior to sending the actual message. When locking/unlocking a door, it’s typical to take 5-10 seconds for the lock to respond. It will then take additional time for the status to update on the UI.

Limitations/Known Issues

Not a wishlist, just things that are necessary for the bare minimum functionality that aren’t working yet

  • Do not do a habmin reinitialize on a door lock. It has been known to cause issues and require a new secure repairing to restore functionality


  • Edit services/zwave.cfg and add a new entry. You must replace each number with random hex digits (GRCs password generator is a good source of random numbers):
networkKey=0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##, 0x##
  • If you have already paired the device with openHAB you must unpair it using the exclusion function. After it has been excluded, Stop openHAB and delete the etc/zwave/node#.xml that corresponded to the device

  • Hard reset the device. NOTE: if this is a door lock, this will likely erase all door codes you have programmed!

Steps to test

  1. Note that pairing process is different than with other Z-Wave devices. The Z-Wave controller needs to stay connected to the machine running openHAB and it needs to be very close to the secure device (a foot or less) during pairing.
  2. Put the Z-Wave controller into inclusion mode using HABmin habmin
    • trigger secure pair from the device per the instructions. You should see lots of activity in the log file at this time. The device make show a confirmation or make noise that it is complete, but that is often premature. After a minute or 2, check your logs for “Secure Inclusion complete” or “Secure Inclusion FAILED”. If it was complete, WAIT until you see “Node advancer: loop - DONE” before continuing to the next step. This is the critical indication that openhab is done interrogating the device to see which commands it supports. This literally took 4 minutes with my Yale lock, so be patient.
  3. If secure inclusion failed, you can stop the server right away. Post your results to the thread with the device you are using and the full openhab.log file. Before trying to secure pair again, you must exclude the device using habmin
  4. Stop the openHAB server. You will now add the device to the items config file. For example, door lock would require 3 new entries: 1) control the lock, 2) show the current state (requesting a lock/unlock doesn’t mean it worked, and someone can manually lock/unlock at any time, so it’s critical to NOT rely on the state of the switch), and 3) show battery status. For example:
Switch Door_Lock "Front door lock control" <none> (GF_Office) {zwave="#:command=door_lock"}
Contact Door_Basic "Front door lock status [%s]" <lock> (GF_Office) {zwave="#:command=door_lock,refresh_interval=120"}
Number Door_Corridor_Battery "Front door lock battery level [%d %%]" (GF_Office) { zwave="#:command=battery,refresh_interval=43200" }

Be sure to replace # above with the id of your door lock from the secure pairing session

  1. start openHAB, wait for everything to initialize and check the logs for errors

  2. Try the switch and wait 10 seconds. If you hear the lock turn, great! If not, the switch may have been in the wrong position to begin with, so try it again and wait 10 seconds

User Codes

The user code command class allows the door entry codes to be set on the door lock by OH. Currently this is a manual process which requires editing the node xml file. Hopefully this will change in the future with OpenHab2.

The friendlyName value below is just a way for humans to track the codes. The friendlyName is never sent to the door lock. OH and the door lock track codes by the position in the userCodeList list.

Adding Codes

  1. Make a backup of all files in openhabhome\etc\zwave. Move the backup outside of the zwave directory.
  2. Open the node xml file for the door lock with a text editor. Search for “USER_CODE” and you should see something like the example below. NOTE: If you don’t see the USER_CODE section, you probably paired the lock with OH before user code support was added to the security branch. Do a git pull, then exclude and re-perform the secure inclusion process as described above
  1. Note the value of numberOfUsersSupported. This is the maximum number of user codes you can store in the lock. If this value is zero, than no codes can be stored
  2. You will now edit the “” line. Each code is given a friendly name to go along with the code. For example to add the user “Dave” with the code “1234” it would look like this:
  1. To add multiple codes, simply repeat the userCode block, like so:
  1. Once your edits are complete, restart OH and your changes should take effect shortly.

Editing codes

  1. You can add or change codes at any time, just edit the node xml and restart OH
  2. If you are removing an item from the list, set the code to 0 (zero) and recycle. This will trigger OH to tell the door lock to remove the code in that position from the door lock. Test it out to make sure the code no longer works, then you can remove that userCode block
