Updated to latest HE firmware (22.214.171.124), updated the Z-wave firmware and then shutdown gracefully and pulled the plug for > 30 secs before restarting. Everything is working in it's baseline state (no devices, no apps etc). For giggles made a backup as well.
This will be a "clean slate" install with only Z-Wave devices (Zooz Dimmers and Switches) at first. Will be adding those in a few hours.
Will report back if anyone is interested to know how it went.
Mine is still in the box, little scared to try, especially after last night trying to setup a new pfsense box on a Watchguard XT505 and trashed my whole network, had to start over. 4 hours later I got all my static IP's back, and my AP's working
I was able to include 8 devices - 2 new GE Enbrighten Switches, 3 Zooz Dimmers and 3 Zooz Switches.
I hit the wall on trying to include an additional Zooz dimmer which was 10 ft away, across the room with no barriers. Inclusion did not recognize it like the others so tried to run an exclude. This did nothing as far as I could tell so used my Z-Stick (holding down the button until yellow light flashes). That seemed to work.. tried including again and got the notice (I'm pairing everything with NO security i.e. unchecked everything). Box went away and the "found device" disappeared. Went into the Z-Wave details page found the failed device but like @danabw could not remove/repair/refresh/discover or anything. Shutdown/pulled power rebooted - finally able to remove device. Tried to include other switches but no go. Shutdown again and pulled power and rebooted but no go. Decided to leave well enough alone for now.
My Z-wave devices would seem to be OK, but after some varying number of hours they would bog down and then stop responding. Be interesting to see if your system manages to soldier on w/all those busy messages.
Sorry to hear you got a ghost. My stick arrives tomorrow, really hope it works for me. Part of me thinks it would be best to exclude everything when I'm temporarily in a good state w/my Z-wave devices, and reset the radio and start over. Also want to wait and see what HE comes up w/in the next couple of days in terms of updated FW/tools. All my Zwave stuff is controllable via switches so the family can still use all the lights, and some key lights are on Hue integration so those automations and buttons still work, along w/Bond fan stuff. I'm limping along...
Ah, good point. Never used the stick so that is all new to me. What is the best guide to use to set it up and use it. It just pairs to the hub like any Zwave other device, I assume, but what are the steps to exclude a device that you want to remove?
DOH moment...downloaded the SDK, no idea how to install it. Doing this on a Windows laptop...this doesn't require Linux to run, does it? I have a pi3 on my IoT VLAN if that will do. I'm a "lite" linux/Pi user, do most stuff via following cook-book directions as I haven't had a linux laptop up and running in ages and I unfortunately seem to forget everything over time when I don't use it...
