There have been many reports of issues during inclusion of specific devices onto the C-7 platform. Engineering at Hubitat have been hard at work on the fix since the first report. We are currently beta testing what we believe will be the final solution to most if not all the inclusion issues. This update has 3 major parts:
- An update to how the hub handles specific errors from some devices, that per Z-Wave specs should never have occurred. Not all devices completely conform to the spec.
- An update to the underlying Z-Wave stack.
- An update to the Z-Wave radio firmware.
The last part is something we want to be absolutely certain about and have been cautiously testing and re-testing the delivery mechanism to insure there will be no issues.
The C-7 is the first 700 series Z-Wave hub that is out in the wild, and as such we had some unexpected issues, some of which required a firmware update from Silicon Labs. We appreciate the Hubitat community's patience as we have been working through these issues.
Once we are satisfied with the results from beta testing, we will release these fixes in the upcoming 2.2.3 release.
