Zigbee and Zwave modules

Wow, great news! Does this mean ZWave is available now for the Creator? Do we need to upgrade to the latest OS?

Its already support at the MALOS layer see here:

This malos layer exposes a Protobuf interface inside a ZMQ connection. There are some simple examples here:

The support in the MOS will we ready soon :). Less than a month I would say.

Thanks for the support … big things coming !


The javascript examples that is mentioned in the previous comment does not work for me.

Was anyone able to get it working, are there python examples available for the same.
It would be very helpful if someone can help me.

Thank you in advance.

Hello @Guru

We are working on the update of those examples. I will let you know when it will be ready. We could discuss in this thread: JavaScript examples for z-wave not working

Thank You,

How to get directly access to zwave and zigbee serial ports simultaneously and start communication using own libraries ?

I have ZigBee working and am now trying to get Z-Wave going. Thank you for your progress on these components!

I have two questions:

  1. Is there a plan to get the Z-Wave serial port working as a pseudo-tty device? I see there is a wishbone UART in the FPGA but to really support it in Linux it should be a tty device. This could be done in user space on Linux, but needs some software work. Right now I have modified the FPGA to route this to the second serial port on Pi 2, but I would like to use Pi 3.

  2. I need to use OpenZWave, but the firmware is set up as a Bridge Controller. OpenZWave only supports a Static Controller. Could you please include the Static Controller firmware in zwave_prog as an option?
