    Maybe some sort of interaction.

    I am not sure it is hardware or software issue because they only release binary. Silicon Labs told me they have a plan to open source the code. Once we get their code, we can verify that.

    After my test, all Z-Wave 700 controller has an issue with firmware which cause delay response seem wake problem. Even with the version 7.17.0, that is Silicon Labs issue, because they never release sample code, only binary. So all developer have to share the same binary.

    Hi Roger,

    I'm surprised you got your RaZberry working with HomeSeer?

    I tried unsuccessfully to get a RaZberry2 working with HS4, and Richard told me not to bother - that they never got it working either?

    I can get HS4 to recognize and appear to initialize the device under /dev/AMA0, but you can't add devices.

    If you look at the dozens of negative reviews on the Amazon sales page, no one seems to have gotten it working?

    Thanks!

    Robert

    You mentioned a marked decrease in ERP to the antenna. Have you measured radiated power of the module vs the 800?

    I don't have an engineering degree or hold an extra license, but I can read!

    Thanks for the data, informative

    I thought I would give these a try so I purchase a Razberry Pro

    Click image for larger version  Name:	RazPro.jpg Views:	0 Size:	124.8 KB ID:	1518674

    Have it mated to a Pi3b. It connects and is recognized by HS4. I can restore a network to it from a backup and the devices are all there, but it will not control anything.
    I and connected to a test HS4 installation, did an import and all my devices from the backup were created in HS, but it will not communicate with any of them. I erased the interface and tried to include (both secure and non secure) it fails either way.

    Has anyone gotten one of these working?

    EDIT: Nevermind. The first board was defective. I went to the second one and it works well, thought there are no LEDs lighting to show status.

    Now I can add and control devices, but cannot get a restored network to communicate. I'll keep playing.

    Hi , thanks for the answer!

    Next one is, if used on a raspberry pi and hs4 instlled on another server… will homeseer plugin recogognize it over the lan? Is ser2net the only way ?

    edit: ser2net is easy enough. I am confusing it with virtualhere

    I'm still waiting to learn why when measuring the antenna jack to ground "If it is around 3.2-3.3V, it's not good, if it is 0V, that's good"

    I thought all antennas had inductance.

    Why does the DC affect RF?

    What causes the damage to the RF amplifier?

    I thought you said on another post... "I got from my friend. He is developing the Smart Home product."

    No reply is needed. I'm finished with this thread.

    Have a great day and be safe.

    Because some inductor type antenna could be circuit short for DC. that will reduce RF signal dramatically. sometimes will damage the RF amplifier too.
