I just tried to add a Kwikset 910 Z-Wave Plus compatible lock to my Webthings Gateway. I’m using a Raspberry Pi 3 with a Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 and I could not get it to see the Kwikset lock.
Kwikset’s included instructions are useless but after some googling found actual troubleshooting guides on their website. They said that during pairing the lock has to be within 12 inches of the gateway. They recommended dismantling the lock and taking it to your gateway. I wasn’t about to do that so I got a long Ethernet cable and brought the gateway to the lock. Unfortunately they still wouldn’t see each other.
I was reading up on the Z-Stick to ensure it was compatible with the lock and came across the part where it has a battery and can be put into pairing mode using the button while unplugged. I decided to give this a try so I unplugged the Z-Stick, pushed the button and it paired with the lock on the first try! When I plugged it back into the Webthings Gateway and clicked the add button it immediately showed the lock as an addable thing.
Unfortunately once the lock was added it showed the State wrong, unlocked when the lock was actually locked. Unlocking the lock via the Gateway did nothing, but locking it resulted in the Webthings Gateway reporting the state as “jammed” but nothing happened with the lock itself.
