Adding Adapter and Devices Using Home Assistant

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

Before starting verify that your ZWave Adapter is recognized and working. You should have plugged in the adapter before booting up the Aura. If you didn’t, now is a good time to power off the cube, plug in the adapter and power it back on. Use the menu options to power off the cube (Do NOT just pull the power cable, that should always be a last resort!)

Click on the Control Panel Icon and verify that you adapter is listed. If it is not see the troubleshooting section.

Adding A Device Using Home Assistant

To Add a device using Home Assistant, first make sure to add the Z-Wave integration. The Magic Cube will automatically make the Z-Wave engine available for Home Assistant. Under Integrations & Devices, find the Z-Wave auto discovered devices and click on Configure.

You will receive a confirmation asking you to verify the discovered device. Verify that this is the IP address of the Magic Cube Aura that you’re working with. Home Assistant will discover other instances of Z-Wave servers running on the network. Once verified, hit SUBMIT.

Home Assistant will automatically recognize all devices onboarded using the Z-Wave JS UI. If you didn’t assign an Area to the device, now is a good time to do it. This is optional and doesn’t affect the operation of the driver on the Controller system.

Verify Devices have been added under Integration & Devices.

Pairing a device using Home Assistant instead of the JS UI

You can also use Home Assistant to add a device without using the Z-Wave Manager. To add a device, navigate to Integrations & Devices –> Z-Wave –>Devices –>Add A Device (in the lower right hand side)

Follow the Prompts to add the device. You have 30 seconds to add the device. If this fails or you don’t have enough time to put the device in pairing mode, repeat these steps.

Any device added to Home Assistant will also be available in Z-Wave Manager UI
