Hi - I may have a defective Zooz Zen25 double plug and Zooz support is asking me to factory reset it and see if it fixes the problem.
I'm trying to figure out what is the best way to do it. If I exclude it from HE, I will have to edit all my references to the device and then exclude and reset. Then go back in and include the device again and redo the references? And it may not fix the problem (clicking and turning off/on randomly)
Am I better off just getting a replacement device and then doing the edits? I don't think I can use the Swap Devices App since this has child devices (though I don't use the child devices in anything).
Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: It looks like I can't get a Zen25 double plug any more. So suggestions for a double plug (outlets should be able to be controlled together or individually)?
Since swap apps does not work with child devices you are pretty much SOL on that device. Once you factory reset it you will need to pair it again which will create a new device.
You could setup multiple virtual devices as placeholders, manually move the apps to those. Then exclude so it removed the device and node, factory reset and then pair again. Then move all your apps back if the device is working.
I think I replied to you on FB yesterday as well. The zen25 was causing issues on my C 7so I removed two of them over a year ago. I’m willing to sell them for $20usd each plus shipping if you would like one or two of them.
Given all the issues with this device (I will eventually get off the C-5!), I think I'm going to hold off. If my current one dies, I will likely replace with a single outlet and splitter (since both connected lamps are always on/off together). Thanks for the offer.
Well - I found Jasco 2 outlet on Amazon but only 1 is controllable and the other is "always on". Decided to get the Zigbee Enbrighten ones (can't control individually but I think I can live with that). Tried to see if there were any red flags about these but did not find anything so
