Aeotec Extender


#1

Just installed this morning an Aeotec Extender. It paired right away. I ran a zwave repair. Device shows up but when looking at device it has no status and unlike the Dome extender this doesn't show how I can turn it on or off. It has been 6 hrs. Is this normal? I have 6 devices and 2 extenders on the mesh.

Which driver did it select? You can change it to Generic Zwave Repeater and it will show you a refresh button and the state “powerSource: mains”

But there is really nothing to do with it. You can leave it as Device and it will be just fine


#3

Why would you turn it on or off? You would want the extender on all the time in order to have a healthy mesh network. What other functions were you hoping would be available for the device?


#4

When I had installed a Dome extender after repair I looked at device and it said off so I hit the on button and it switched on. I thought the same for Aeotec since I didn't see a status. I changed to Generic extender and now it says Main. I guess its working?

The on/off functionality of the Dome Range Extender is for the LED.

The repeating functionality of that device and the Aeotec Range Extender is always on.
