Alarm on lost contact with unit

Post by rsafors » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:14 pm

Hi
I would like to get an alarm if my ZNet Lite loose contact with an zwave unit. If i disconnect for example a breaker i will not get any alarm thet the unit is not reponding even if i try to change the state of the unit!
Do i need to grate some LUA-script in order to get this function?

I’m looking for that too, but the closest I have found is this clever workaround that gunleik came up with in this post.

I have not tried it myself.

1. Use device/info to read current(last?) state of the device
2. Use device/turnOn or device/turnOff and send the same as current the state is.
3. Wait a few seconds and check device/history for successStatus !=0 (device probably offline)

This could be solved with a LUA-script but unfortunately i do not know how to create that script. This should be a standard function for all Z-wave devices, to know that the device is not responding is important information!
