I have a Schlage BE469. It was hooked up to my Wink 2.0 Hub and it worked well. Moving it to Hubitat was easy. Having it work is more difficult.
Schlage BE469 - firmware 0.8.0
Hubitat Elevation™ Platform Version 220.127.116.11 - Hardware Version Rev C-5
UnInstall from Wink
In Wink I removed the lock on the app and it walked me through opening battery case of lock. Open door. Lock the lock. On the keypad hit the Schlage button above your numbers, then enter in your programmer code + 0. It should beep.
Install on Hubitat
Now I went to my Hubitat menu. My Hubitat was about 15 ft away from my door. I selected Discover Devices, Z-Wave, start Z-Wave pairing. On my Schlage, door still opened, lock still locked, I hit the Schlage button above the numbers, then entered in my programming code + 0. Hubitat found the device and I named it Front Door.
Setup on Hubitat
I proceeded to clear all the codes so I could reenter them with names. I did this from the Hubitat menue as well as the lock itself.
From the lock. Door open and in the locked position. Press Schlage + programmer code + 6 + programmer code and then it beeps and green check blinks twice.
I went back to Hubitat, entered in Code 01, code and Charlie, clicked Set Code. I also added code 02 and 03. Worked like a charm for three codes.
So on my browser I went into the LOG portion of the Hubitat GUI so I could trap what happens.
I went to my door, locked it. Entered my code, door opened. Locked it, entered the second code, door opened. Locked it, entered the third code, door opened.
I went to my computer and saw the lock, door opened by Charlie, door locked, door opened by 2nd user, door locked, door opened by 3rd user.
Note: there were other messages there about Front Door battery level and such.
So it worked!!! Great.
I then went to build an automation to turn on some lights. This is where things started going a bit off. I setup a rule
Condition - Lock Code entered on Front door : Charlie [TRUE]
Define Rule - Lock code entered on front Door : Charlie
Select Actions for True - Dim:Picture:60
It worked and then it didn't work. Then it worked, but it took about 10 seconds for the light to come on. It has not worked since.
Here is my log from the last few times the lock and Hubitat has communicated. There is no communication now. Hubitat shows the lock is there, but the status is incorrect. The lock and unlock buttons do nothing.

I have not tried to unpair and pair the lock because I now see where so many people have had issues.
I did reboot the hub.
I waited about two hours. I performed a Z-Wave repair (see below about repair link). Suggestion: open another browser window to the Hubitat GUI and open the Log. I leave this open a lot so I can see what is going on. The repair takes time depending on the number of devices. When it is done, it will say that Z-Wave Repair is complete. Do not confuse the repair complete of just one node.
sys:12019-04-01 09:05:29.154 pm infoFinished Z-Wave Network Repair
sys:12019-04-01 09:05:18.051 pm traceZ-Wave Node 22: Repair is done.
After the repair, still does not work.
I found an document on how to setup devices to form a good Z-Wave mesh. Here is the link. Look at the section about Z-Wave Repair
Based on that article, I am just going to wait.
The following morning, I went in and out the door. I looked at my log (yes it is still up and running from the day before) and my motion around the area worked, but the door did not register anything.
Side note - I am having issues with the GE Dimmer near the door. It was paired, but would not connect. I unpaired it before the Z-Wave repair, but it still will not pair again. The first time it paired with no issues. In the same gang box as the dimmer, there is a GE switch. It works great. On the outside of the wall there is a motion sensor (Zigbee) that controls the GE switch just fine. There is also another GE dimmer on the adjacent wall that works well. That is the PICTURE dimmer and is about the same distance from the Hubitat, which is still sitting in the upstairs hallway by the banister.
So at this point I have 33 devices, 27 physical and six virtual.
3 Alexa devices
19 - Generic Z-Wave
- 1 - lock
- 1 - Motion Temp Sensor
- 1 - outlet
- 8 -smart dimmers
- 7 - smart switches
- 1 - switch
5 -Generic ZigBee
- 4 - motion sensor
- 1 - RGBW light
3 - Group Bulb Dimmer
2 - Smart Sense Multi Sensor
1 - Zoot 4-in 1 Sensor
Next course of Action
At this point no resolution. I will continue to wait another day. This is what it says in the above link to build a strong Z-Wave mesh.
I might unpair the lock and pair again, but will probably wait until I can get the dimmer to work. I will most likely remove the dimmer and replace it and try with a new unit.
I might perform a Z-wave repair again.
Anyone have suggestions?
