New ZWave dongle recognition code landed


(Dave Hylands) #1

I meant to send this out earlier.

The foxbox has new code to automatically recognize zwave dongles. It uses the USB VID/PID of the dongle rather than the device name (i.e. /dev/ttyACM0).

The auto recognition code is supported on linux and mac.
The list of recognized VIDs/PIDs is here:

You can still provide the name of the zwave dongles using the config file, although we’ve changed device to devices (which can be a comma separated list of device names).

In theory, multiple zwave dongles should now be supported. I’ve been unable to test this since I only have one dongle, and plan on testing it more at London.
