Iris v2 stuck

I have no zigbee repeaters. The living room sensor is with in arms reach of the hub. One of my zigbee bulb are out at the end of my drive and it's still working.

What Brand is the Zigbee bulb?


Update: my kitchen started working and my living room. Now my porch motion...same kind Iris v2 stopped.

Oh wait kitchen and living room stopped again. Reporting motion and no motion.

Something weird is happening to my zigbee devices.

Have you restarted your hub via the Settings menu? Just curious if that would make a difference.

I would strongly encourage you to pick up a few Zigbee outlets to strengthen your mesh network.

I just bought 2 peanut plugs. Will those work?

Also most bulbs make horrible repeaters. Sengled has purposely made their bulb without a repeater. Hue bulbs on the hue hub are fine. Most issues I see on the forums seem to be bulbs repeating poorly, not enough repeaters and interference which is usually remedied by changing to another channel.

My sengled bulbs are all outside and as in right now still working.

Peanut plugs although not on the officially supported list have worked well for many members of the community. Although I have only had mine for a week, I have not run in to any mesh issues with them.

Thanks for adding they are Sengled. I am sure the repeater advice is sound. Best wishes. I have rather enjoyed Hubitat.

What is the battery level of the sensors? You might want to try power cycling the motion sensors by pulling the battery and re-installing it.

I added the peanut. Easiest devices I've ever added by the way. Both living room and kitchen started working again. Weird because the living room sensor is closer to hub then peanut is.

Porch is still showing active though.

Ok this is messed up. Got living room and kitchen back but just lost my Z-Wave Schlage Lock which has been working great.

Several users have had good results adding the aeotec repeaters for their zwave locks.

@waynespringer79 and @aaiyar have quite a bit of experience with these

Yes I have 1 of those also

Been suffering something similar with my set up. V2 Iris motion sensors showing active on dashboard and in devices panel and not timing out back to inactive. Batteries were reading OK. Then they suddenly went dead completely. Replaced the batteries and then they've been fine. So maybe its due to battery low, even tho they report the battery still had 60% or so remaining.

I bought 10 of these on ebay, and all 10 are in use in my (little...ish?) 1902 square foot house to cover every window and door. No issues at all. All I have for zigbee repeaters are two Ikea tradfri outlets.

Ive had a SmartThings v4 motion sensor do this a couple of times, it gets stuck in active state and doesnt send any further zigbee traffic. requires a battery pull to get it back talking again - weird.

Yup that's what I did. All better so far.

I had all sorts of issues and once I spread out peanut plugs throughout the house everything g has been working greats.

Z-wave on the other hand. Totally different t story.
