The Z-Wave integration for Home Assistant allows you to observe and control connected Z-Wave devices. Please see the Z-Wave getting started section for in-depth documentation on how to use and setup the Z-Wave component.
There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:
If you have setup the requirements, then add the following entry
# Example configuration.yaml entry zwave:
To get your Z-Wave thermostat or HVAC unit working with Home Assistant, follow the instructions for the general Z-Wave component.
Thermostats with support for fan modes or different operating modes, will be handled like a HVAC device and will also be detected as one.
If the thermostat supports different operating modes, you will get one thermostat entity for each mode.
Once enabled, any Z-Wave climate devices will be available to Home Assistant. Multiple entities may be created. The following entities are created for a Remotec ZXT-120.
climate.remotec_zxt120_heating_1_id: Allows you to control the connected device. See below for examples.
sensor.remotec_zxt120_temperature_38: A sensor which returns the current temperature set on the attached device.
The following examples will instruct a Remotec ZXT-120 to turn the attached device mode to Heating, and set the temperature at 24 degrees after 8pm. Add it to
automation: - alias: Turn on Heater at 8pm trigger: - platform: time at: "20:00:00" action: - service: climate.set_hvac_mode data: entity_id: climate.remotec_zxt120_heating_1_id hvac_mode: Heat - service: climate.set_temperature data: entity_id: climate.remotec_zxt120_heating_1_39 temperature: 24
Generally, in Home Assistant, you can use the
homeassistant.turn_off service to turn devices off. For the Remotec ZXT-120, you must instead make a service call like the following.
automation: - alias: Turn off Heater at 9pm trigger: - platform: time at: "21:00:00" action: - service: climate.set_hvac_mode data: entity_id: climate.remotec_zxt120_heating_1_id hvac_mode: 'Off'
Note: In the example above, the word
Off is encased in single quotes to be valid YAML.
A simple way to test if your Z-Wave climate device is working is to use Developer Tools -> Services. Choose the applicable Climate service from the list of Available services: and enter something like the sample below into the Service Data field and then press CALL SERVICE.
entity_id: climate.remotec_zxt120_heating_1_id hvac_mode: Heat
Z-Wave garage doors, blinds, and roller shutters are supported as cover in Home Assistant.
To get your Z-Wave covers working with Home Assistant, follow the instructions for the general Z-Wave component.
If you discover that you need to invert the operation of open/close for a particular device, you may change this behavior in your Z-Wave section of your
configuration.yaml file as follows, in addition you can also invert percent position:
zwave: device_config: cover.my_cover: invert_openclose_buttons: true invert_percent: true
To get your Z-Wave locks working with Home Assistant, follow the instructions for the general Z-Wave component.
Z-Wave locks will expose three services under the lock domain to manage usercodes if the lock supports it:
|clear_usercode||Clears a usercode at code_slot X. Valid code_slots are 1-254, but max is defined by the lock.|
|get_usercode||Get a usercode from the lock at code_slot. Valid code_slots are 1-254, but max is defined by the lock.|
|set_usercode||Sets usercode to X at code_slot Y. Valid usercodes are at least 4 digits, and max defined by the lock.|
