Step 1: Get a Windows machine
- Note: if you only have a Raspberry Pi / Linux, please read Fred's comment below. He explains how to send the command on Raspberry Pi.
Step 2: Download Drivers for the USB stick from the official website and follow their instructions
Step 3: Download CoolTerm (it is free)
Step 4: Plug-in the USB stick. CoolTerm should immediately recognize it as a COM-port. Mine is COM3
Step 5: In CoolTerm, click "Connect". Now you are connected to your USB Z-stick via Serial interface
Step 6: In CoolTerm menu: Go to "Connection" -> "Send String..."
Step 7: Pick "Hex" radio button and copy/paste the following command
01 08 00 F2 51 01 00 05 01 51
Step 8: Click "Send"
Step 9: Disco is over!
If you want to re-enable the Disco send the following command on Step 7:
01 08 00 F2 51 01 01 05 01 50
This solution is taken from Domoticz forum [...]
Below is my review of the stick itself:
Works great with Home Assistant + Raspberry Pi 3 (with Raspbian) + Minimote and SmartSwitches
A few notes for Raspberry Pi hackers:
* follow the installation instructions on the home assistant website carefully. You should be comfortable with command-line at the very least. There are a few places where they recommend setting up `hass` inside python `virtualenv` instead of root. I would recommend doing that. Worked well for me
* it is trivial to add SmartSwitches and almost any device you can think but there is one device that will be more tricky:
* minimote: both the Z-stick and minimote are controllers. The stick would need to become the primary controller and minimote must become a secondary controller. Please google for it: there are instructions in the internet (see homeassistant.io) that work with Home Assistant. It worked for me.
In terms of how this device does its job? Fantastic. I prefer to leave it plugged into the PC when I include devices but I really like that if I wanted I can take it around to the devices and include/exclude them remotely. The latency from the node (motion sensor, door switch, siren) to the USB stick is very minimal. Any perceived lag may be introduced by the software you're using to control the device.
Physically the device is built well and feels solid. It does protrude from the port quite a bit but it's located in a rear USB port so it presents no issues.
This has no bearing in my score for the device but I want to say I'm using Domocitz (free/open source) to manage my Z-Wave network. Please look into how you're going to manage your network and try multiple software before coming to the conclusion this device is to blame.
The Aeotec Z-Wave Z-Stick, Gen5 seemed to fit the bill from my research so I placed the order and have not been disappointed. This device is perfect for my needs and has been a ton of fun to play with.
+ Plug and play compatibility in any current Linux distribution
+ Decent range as far as Z-Wave goes (easily 100ft through walls and floors)
+ Works with all Z-wave devices I've tried so far - Switches, dimmers, wall plugs, thermostats
+ Perfectly supported by the automation platform I'm using (Home Assistant)
+ Blinking disco style light can be disabled with a simple command to the controller
+ Inexpensive way to jump into the Z-wave world
- None so far!
After a couple months of usage the controller became unreliable and did not consistently work. Worked with aeotec tech support and after completing all the troubleshooting it was determined that the item needs to be replaced. Have tried to contact the seller on Amazon for a warranty replacement but get no response. After finally getting a replacement under warranty it too had issues so I just returned it and bought the homeseer zstick + which has been working well.
