Aeotec ZW116, no power updating in Homey Aeotec App

Hi

I installed the ZW116 this morning (confirming that is indeed the hardware I have and not the ZW139). It paired successfully and turns on and off via the app but I am not getting any power readings. I looked elsewhere on line and it suggests settings for parameters 101 and 111 but there does not appear to be a way to do this in Homey. Does anyone have any suggestions and experience?

Many Thanks

Andrew

If parameters are not available in the advanced settings of the device, you can change the missing parameters via raw configuration.

More information can be found in this post:

Thank you for that. I have just tried updating them using the format as defined in the hint (ID,Size,Value;ID, Size, Value;…" So far, it does not seem to have made any difference…I’ll wait and see…

So, I am trying to work out how to identify the node Id that I want to send the raw config too. How can I find it? Thanks

In Developer. You can also find the Node ID in the advanced settings of the device.
In the advanced settings you can also change the settings (Raw Configuration Parameters). You only need the ID of the parameter (in your case the 101 or the 111), the size and the value (separated by commas, without spaces).

Please make a screenshot of the instructions which parameters you want to change.

Hi, shot of advanced parameters and manual pages for those parameters will follow. Doesn’t work!!

Power meter display in app:

The parameters look correct.
How long did you have the pump running altogether? Just shortly?
I also had the problem that the data was not transmitted directly after the installation. One day later the values were shown.

If not done yet, I would let the pump run a little and observe the consumption values. If that did not work, I would contact Athom (support@athom.com).

If you go to the developer page and switch on the z-wave log. Can you see any energy reports are received from device?

Hi Fantross, it’s been running about 36 hours now. Thanks for the help.

Hi Osorkon. Ok, my newbie shining through…how do I go to the developer page?

Thanks

Thank you!

OK, this is what I see:

I don’t know if that means I am receiving the power values or not!

I would say, yes.
But the Aeotec App is not able to parse the values.
If you switch the device manually, will the status be updated in the App?

It doesn’t seem to.

Homey is receiving 3 types of meter values (at least in your snippet that is shown):
2020-05-27T16:19:52.357Z = kilo Watt hours
2020-05-27T16:19:52.455Z = Wattage
2020-05-27T16:19:52.555Z = kilo Watt hours
2020-05-27T16:19:52.655Z = kiloVolt-Ampere hour (first device i’m seeing sending this value)

So you do get a power values, but it indeed seems like it isn’t parsed correctly, might even be a core issue as even in your log it isn’t parsed to regular (Decimal) Meter Values.
Definitely a thing for Athom Support.

The devolo smart plug 2 does it also. But is not display in the app.
