I have an august pro lock (z-wave). It is z-wave plus, but it is my only z-wave device that gives me issues. I have also noticed that, even though it is so close to the hub that it communicates directly, it has 164 route changes, while my other devices (s0) have 1. Can I pair this lock with no security? Will it be a security hazard if I do this?
Many times, the lock does not respond, says it is unlocked when it is not, and does not change state when manually used.
How many S0 devices do you have? That could be slowing things down periodically as S0 is very chatty - sends like 4 times the traffic other stuff does. Having just a few S0 devices should be okay though.
I also have one of these devices, and with 55+ days of uptime, my report shows 252 route changes. However, the I have not noticed any significant issues with the device.
One thing that is often recommended for locks (and other FLiRS devices) is to have a beaming repeating device nearby to improve reliability.
I do not believe this lock will allow pairing without security. Generally, security is highly recommended for this class of device.
Ah so you do not have any devices paired with S0! That is good... not sure what is going on though. Everything looks okay given your screen cap. Check the logs / app stats to see if anything is weird there like for RM or the other lite apps.
Have you tried disabling your lock rules to see if that helps?
Here is a quick look at the troubleshooting page - August recommends using only standard alkaline batteries? Wow...
PLEASE NOTE: Your August Smart Lock has 4 AA batteries. It is important to replace all 4 batteries at the same time. Please use only standard alkaline batteries. Lithium and extended life alkaline batteries will not provide you with the optimal experience and could result in not being alerted that your batteries are dying or alerting you when they are not.
I am trying for second time to integrate August lock into Hubitat. Finally got it into Zwave pairing mode. Tried to add it both secured and unsecured. Never showed up in devices. It shows up in Zwave mesh details. How do I get it to show up in Devices?
