I have some older powered Z-Wave devices that work great but start to cause issues over time when they become part of the mesh network. Specifically when they become a node for other devices and they just don't seem to pass the signal on consistently. My home configuration is in a very small footprint so I dont require all the wired devices becoming repeaters/nodes. At first I thought this would be great but it continues to be an issue with nodes constantly failing. Any ideas on how to block the "mesh / node" feature of these wired devices?
Note: Some of the devices for example are - Aeon Labs Appliance Switch Model DSC06106-ZWUS and Evolve Model LRM-AS-W Wall Dimmer
Thank you in advance
