battlenut Had it for a couple months now, Pi 3B+. interesting enough I just found out about SBC's in like may. Pretty interesting what you can do with them.

Chargeit Well it's working. Pretty happy with the B+ so far. It feels more responsive then the old B model and uploading files to it over my network is noticeably quicker. Happy with the case also. Was worried that the fan was going to be loud but connecting it for its low speed setting it's inaudible.

Chargeit Hey guys.

I received a Raspberry pi 3 B+ today. I opened it and it looked like something was splattered on it. I checked the rear of the pi and one of the solder's looks bad. Any idea what this could be? I'm guessing flux or a cold solder.

5291Crash Just found this thread.

Have a couple i use

3B with a TNC board, for packet coms, and a 7" Pi LCD. Powered with a LM2596 step down allowing me to use 6v-40V DC input.
3B with and a DV4mini dongle for DMR comms

Zero W, to tinker with, mostly ordered it because it was cheap and you can only get one at a time generally so stuck it on a 3B order.


Been a while since i had any of them powered on, dang winter.

Home Assistant is rather powerful though and has a pretty active user base and forum if you run into issues. Its biggest strength IMO is it can act like a hub of hubs. It can be your zwave hub, it can integrate a hue system, nest, etc.

Hi there,

Well, yes, I'll consider home assistant as a solution as well. Actually, it didn't ring a bell as being a home automation solution, as per the name smile.gif
As for USB stick, I simply don't like it. USB is to be plugged/unplugged, right ? Such is not the case for a
Z Wave module ...

As for frequencies, I am well aware of this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z-Wave states France (where I'm located)
operates in the same freq as Switzerland, where I plan to buy the gear, so I think I am covered.

Thanks for the inputs !

So, the project:
- RP3
- a Z wave plus razberry daughter card
- an home automation software (to be defined, which one)
- a proof of concept of a working home automation

The RP3 is cool for this because the controller can be sneaked out anywhere without taking
space. It's largely powerful enough for simple HA. Also, the ethernet port will probably come handy
for remote operation.

Here goes. Parts to be ordered this WE.

If anyone has any inputs for the above, they are very welcome.

[edit] looks like jeedom is gonna be my choice of software to begin with

[edit2 21/11/2017] OK, I installed raspbian stretch from sept. 2017. The razberry card was also installed. Turned out, the z-way server couldn't boot, due to a missing 1.0.0 SSL lib (post 4 of https://forum.z-wave.me/viewtopic.php?t=25337 gives the solution, but you may have to adapt to whatever pkg there is, currently).
After this, z-way server did boot up as expected, and all z-wave devices worked as expected and could be controlled from the PI.)
However, z-way couldn't do all the stuff I wanted so I moved to jeedom.
Jeedom proved a fuming mess. I can't grab how it works, to be honest. I'll keep reading the doc but I'm not positive I can use a tool I need to read the doc for ... Needs to be straight forward ...
More to come ...
