I just recently setup rules for my Office, Master Bedroom and Living Room to turn on ceiling fans when they go over a specific temperature and turn off once they've come below a certain temperature. Since that time I can't get Alexa to control them they are all "Not Responding".
At this moment, within the time when the rules take place, neither the living room fan nor the office fan can be controlled via their device page. The master bedroom fan can. The master bedroom however isn't warm enough for the rule to be "true" to turn on the fan. The Living Room and Office are warm enough for the rule to be "true".
I'll test them again tonight after 6pm so the rule isn't in play.
They are all Hampton Bay fans that have the WINK controller and use the native Hampton Bay device driver for Hubitat.
This has nothing to do with the rule. If you can't turn them on from the device page, neither can RM. These guys are notorious from dropping off the Zigbee network.
Try sending a Config command from the device page. Sometimes that will bring them back. If not, you will have to repair them by going through the reset process (turning the power to them on/off like 5 times, with the hub in pairing mode).
RM did turn them on and off though, even though I couldn't from the device page. After the 6pm window I was once again able to control the Living Room Fan but not the Office Fan from the device page.
Config command didn't work on the office fan and I've sorta tried the reset process on the office fan but the catch there is the breaker it is on is the same breaker as my bedroom fan. I don't want to reset both. I tried just disconnecting the power directly at the fan and doing the 3 secs off, 3 secs on, thing from there but that didn't reset it (or at least it's not discoverable again).
And the Habitat hub is in the Office with the fan so I know it's not a distance thing.
I'm in Florida as well. I've never had an issue with a device working again after a power outage and this isn't the result of a power outage.
The fan is in the very same room as the hub. This hasn't been an issue for months until I created a rule to turn the fan on or off based on room temp during a specific time of day. The same day I did that I experienced this issue.
Hitting the breaker for this fan is hitting the same breaker as another fan that's working and I don't want to reset that fan.
I do everything on my power not to reset the buggers because they are so problematic.
Please trust us when we tell you....get a repeater...it doesnt matter how close your hub is. The is no rhyme or reason but I worked on the initial driver for this device. We wasted weeks thinking it was the dth...or ST..etc. adding a repeater just works.
I have 2 fans in the same general space..about 10 feet apart. The first paired with my hubitat. The second refused to pair until....wait for it...I added a repeater in the room. The hub was 15 feet away with no obstacles. Essentially the same room.
We have seen people in ST that have had the fan work for weeks and then stop working randomly. Guess what fixed their issue. YUP....a repeater!
I'm going to kill the power to it, disconnect it and then hook it up to a zip cord and try to use that to reset it. With it being on the breaker with another fan I don't want to use the breaker to try to reset it.
