Secure vs Non Secure Z-Wave Inclusion

I recently purchased a HomeSeer HS-LS100+ Z-wave lead sensor.

The instructions recommend secure inclusion. I've read that unless needed it was best to include as non-secure.

So I'm not clear on the benefits of "secure" inclusion. Normally I would see "secure" as needed on a door lock, garage door opener etc. But not a leak sensor.

When I google this question I get articles talking about security as is needed for door locks.

Is there something else that results from a link being secure?


I have found that you will have less problems with your zwave mesh if you only use secure inclusion on locks/garage doors everything else non-secure.

For a leak sensor there would be zero benefit, so you are correct, and this is bad advice from the manufacturer...
