      Same problem with rfxcom and z-wave

      Hi I'm experiencing the same problem.

      I've unplugged the rfxcom and z-wave device, uninstalled the z-wave driver and the ftdi-drivers I had installed for the rfxcom.

      Next I downloaded the latest ftdi drivers and altered the inf files (this step might need a more detailed description for some). Plugged in the z-wave, and i let windows instal the latest (modified) driver. Started homeseer and the z-wave device turned out to work perfectly with the latest ftdi driver.

      Next I plugged in the rfxcom (usb transmitter), let windows install the same driver for this device as wel... started homeseer and it stopped recognizing the z-wave again. (If I unplug the rfxcom, then z-wave works again.)

      Who can resolve this?

      (an alternative z-wave device might also be a solution, the only one I know of, for europe, is the ACT ZCU010. RFXCom does add quite some functionality, I hope I won't end up having to choose between rfxcom and z-wave)

            RFXCOM uses the standard and unmodified drivers from FTDI so it can't be solved by RFXCOM.

            Did anybody report this problem to the Z-Wave supplier?

              I hope this solution will work for you:
              1 remove the ZWave device in the Homeseer Setup-Interfaces tab
              2 stop Homeseer.
              3 delete the ZWave and the RFXCOM USB devices from the Hardware-Devices
              4 uninstall the old FTDI drivers
              5 unzip the attached driver files to your disk. (but don't install them at this point)
              6 connect the zwave and the RFXCOM receiver. Don't install the drivers automatically but install them from the location where you unzipped the drivers.
              7 check the COM port which is assigned to the Zwave device (is in the Hardware-Devices list)
              8 start Homeseer and connect the Zwave device but now using the COM port.

              It should work now. I have installed the ZWave device using this procedure and the HS log shows:
              22-7-2007 17:29:51 ~!~Startup~!~Initializing Z-Wave Interface on COM port: 17 at 115K baud.
              22-7-2007 17:29:51 ~!~Info~!~Found 0 Z-Wave nodes
              22-7-2007 17:29:51 ~!~Info~!~Z-Wave interface version: 4
              22-7-2007 17:29:51 ~!~Info~!~Z-Wave interface node ID: 1

              22-7-2007 17:29:51 ~!~Z-Wave~!~Controller firmware version: 2.45

              The attached zip file contains the latest FTDI drivers with modified .INF files for the ZWave device. You will get a warning that the drivers are not certified. This is normal because the .INF are updated for the Zwave.

                Act Zcu201

                I have just installed HS2.2.066 and stopped.
                I am trying to install ACT ZCU201 USB adapter, Windows XPSP2 recognize it as a RS232 to USB adapter and cannot find the driver. Any of other USB drivers are not suitable. Any idea?

                  You need to instal the port drivers from act.

                    Does anyone know where to find drivers for AspireRF RFUSB drivers for 64bit Win 7?

                    edit: I got the correct 64bit drivers from Cooper wiring but they are also available from

                      Wondering if there are any Intermatic HA-22 drivers out there for CE 6.0?

                      Just wondering? Trying out little experiment here.
