  • ZWave SmartStick+

    Greetings.

    What software, if any, needs to be running on the same device where you use a SmartStick ? For example, if I have an RPi sitting around running Kodi or a Minecraft server or such, can I also plug the SmartStick into there or do I also need to have some local software running on that device?

    advTHANKSance!

    Typically the ZWave stick is a USB to serial device. To access it remotely you utilize ser2net. (apt get ser2net) and access it from Homeseer with IP of RPi and port similiar to the ZNet configuration.

      You wouldn't have a remote SmartStick as you would have a ZNET. Unless otherwise there is special zwave software to communicate with the HomeSeer server.

      Ask zwolfpack

          Yes here purchased a ZWave dot Me card when it was first available and installed it in my first Zee (RPi-1).


          Intially ran the ZWave plugin on this device and remotely connected it to the HS3 server.

          Then later used ser2net to connect to HS3. No special software is needed. You just configure your mothership to connect to the ethernet IP of the DIY'd ZWave controller.

          There are many folks here on the forum using ZWave this way (years now). I have had mine in my attic POE connected now for a few years.

          Thinking there is a DIY here relating to this methodology. See this post.
