door locks and tellstick

Post by HarryL » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi,

My guess is that door locks would not be a good idea on tellstick Net, but would like to know the possibilities.. both with net(433) /znet(zwave/zeebee)..

It depends on what type of lock mechanism you have. A simple relay receiver, eg Nexa WRR-1 could easily be connected to a electromagnetic lock mechanism.
Perhaps not the highest level of security, but good enough for garden shed/garage.

The danalock system seems to have a Z-wave compatible lock, then the Tellstick ZNet could be used (but not the Tellstick Net).

I have only a normal lock, just was wondering if there where any real world experiences.. and hardware we knew worked.

in short does anyone know if danalock works with tellstick znet?

I use danalock v3 with Tellstick znet It works fine but I havent tried
to configure the lock through telldus live. I also have it set up in homeassistant
via telldus with automations and it works fine

I have problems in configuring Telldus with Danalock v3. Kenvase (or anyone), can you help me how to configure it (coudn't find direct messaging)
  • You mentioned that you didn't use telldus live, isn't that the only place to add new devices?
  • When I try to add danalock, the inclusion process hangs when it is 50% ready
  • If I reload the browser, I can see a new device with a name 'Device nn'.
  • When looking at it, telldus tells that it is an unknown device. However, the image of danalock v3 is included and all Zwave information seems to be in the place (e.g. additional settings like twist assist)
  • The device is seen as a normal switch in telldus live and HomeAssistant
Despite the problems, everything seems to be fine but when I turn it on or off, nothing happens...

Ideas?

I do use telldus live to set it up. the dana lock is unknown device in mine as well(don't know why) . it will act as a switch as you say. To me it sounds like it didn't register correctly.
I had my telldus within 1'5 meters when regestring it in telldus. I think you shoulď remove it and reregister it.

Thanks kenvase,
I did factory reset for the lock and did everything again. And now it connected.

Locking and unlocking works ok, but not a perfect solution:
  • the distance from Telldus has to be quite short
  • if the (un)locking failed, I did not get any feedback in telldus
  • if a (un)lock using mobile/key, the status is not updated in Telldus

the distance from Telldus has to be quite short
I have Telldus z-wave plug as repeater 50cm from lock to make it work.
During inclusion I had TellStick 50cm from Danalock, and it still took 12+ tries to make it work. :evil: :evil: :evil:
if the (un)locking failed, I did not get any feedback in telldus
I get a text flashing by in iPhone app, visible for 1-2 seconds only. ;)
if a (un)lock using mobile/key, the status is not updated in Telldus
I had this working before power outage and TellStick erasing all devices. I have not got it working again yet... :roll:

@Willew, did you ever figure out the part with Telldus not updating when locking/unlocking using the mobile app?

Even if your danalock works to lock and unlock it has probably not finished the interview with telldus. That's why status does not change.
Same happened to me but Telldus support fixed it.
