This is beyond frustrating. I recently added three new zooz switches, a zooz rgb dimmer, and a couple remote paddle switches to my Z-Wave Network. Everything was going perfectly fine until the final switch. It failed after my first pairing attempt after entering s2 authentication. (Mind you, I had just added 2 other switches less than 5 feet away.)
Out of an abundance of caution, after the switch failed to pair, I excluded it from the hub, factory reset the switch, and attempted to install it again. Once again, it failed at the s2 authentication pairing step. I excluded it, factory reset it, and attempted again.
This time it paired almost right away. However, now I have two lovely ghost nodes that I have no way of getting rid of. To add insult to injury, the final device has seemingly caused half of my network to stop working.
I have spent dozens and dozens of hours setting up my network. I had this happen a few months ago, and the only solution I found was to Nuke the network completely and start over. I really don't want to do that again and add 50 devices because of one failed device.
I ordered a Zooz USB Z-Wave stick. I have read that you can delete ghost nodes from a computer.
If you can do it from a computer (stick will be here tomorrow, so I am not sure if this will even work), why can you not do it directly from the hub that hosts the Z-Wave Network?
All the other devices paired fine, but did I do something wrong with the last switch? Also, am I on the right track for the most efficient fix?
