Since node-red-contrib-zwave-js is based on Z-Wave JS, we have the support and active maintenance from the amazing group of developers who have built the libraries, APIs, and config files which run this contrib.

The User Interface


Included with the contrib is a user interface where Z-Wave network management is handled. The controller side of the UI is used to include/exclude devices, heal the network, update firmware, and view the network map for diagnosing problems. The device side of the UI is used to configure devices, manage associations, and provide setup help for the nodes which will be used in your flows.

The Nodes


There are 4 node types included with this contrib (click here for full details about these nodes)

  • zwave-js: this node is used to set up a connection to your USB Z-Wave controller, set security keys, and manage various advanced controller options
  • zwave-device: this node is used to send and receive messages to one or more of the Z-Wave devices on your network
  • event-filter: this node is used to filter and sort messages from your Z-Wave devices
  • cmd-factory: this node simplifies creation of messages being sent to your Z-Wave devices

Awesome People - Thanks!
