Tell Me It Gets Better

I'm frustrated out of my mind right now. And my family isn't happy either.

I'm transitioning, or trying, from Iris. I removed my devices through the Iris app and tried to find them in Hubitat. I don't have a lot of devices. A door hinge switch, front lock, smart wall dimmers in 4 places and both a plug-in dimmer and a switch.

If Hubitat finds a device, it's found only 3 so far, but I could only ID one. It doesn't name them anything but "generic" or "device", and only once gave me any tools to ID which device it was. The Hubitat web-admin being PAINFULLY slow isn't helping along one bit.

Rant Over. For now.

The community can try to help but we need more info.
Like brand and model, if it is zigbee or zwave to start.

First thing, is join one device at a time, so that you know what it is. If you get "generic something" that's good, and the device should work as you expect. Just give it a name and save it. If you get "device", that's bad, and means that it didn't really join properly. Exclude and/or reset that device (if Z-Wave, exclude it using Settings / Z-Wave Info / Z-Wave Exclude -- follow mfr instructions for exclude, usually just hit the button). Then try again to pair it. Be sure that the device is supported: List of Supported Devices - Hubitat Documentation

I feel about the same with the frustration...not much is intuitive, and the learning curve is quite a bit more than i imagined it would be
I'm trying to pair contact sensors. I get about 18 of them added, then try to add another one, and i get a message that it found an existing one and updated it...trouble is it was working fine, and needed no updates. This is not a big problem in itself, but i cant get it to add anything else because it just stops there and doesn't identify anything new??##$?$$?&&&?!

I have another 20 or so to add, so i'm stuck.

Ideas would be welcome.

Give the mesh time. Adding one after the other in quick succession isn't a good recipe for success.

Days already passed...that should be enough.

If you post some logs, that will help. Device events also have details about what's happening.
Understand you are frustrated, but without information that gives a picture of what's happing on your hub, it's not possible to offer suggestions.

Reviewing the docs will explain how to capture logs and gives some explanation about their content.

Continuing the discussion from Tell Me It Gets Better:

This is the log for the device it identifies and reloads...this is like reading a foreign language, and I have no idea what it means.

This is a dashboard tha i am using to see if my devices are working

I use the Dashboard as a diagnostic tool too. :slight_smile:

your paste of Logs is for a single device (ID: 162) which you are calling "Contact Sensor 18"

dev:162019-03-02 06:24:46.976 pm infoContact Sensor 06 battery is 75%
dev:162019-03-02 06:23:26.824 pm infoContact Sensor 06 temperature is 71.01?F
dev:162019-03-02 05:53:53.177 pm infoContact Sensor 06 was opened
dev:162019-03-02 05:53:48.409 pm infoContact Sensor 06 was closed
dev:162019-03-02 04:13:07.898 pm infoContact Sensor 18 temperature is 70.07?F
dev:162019-03-02 04:07:43.348 pm warndebug logging disabled...

That just tells you the auto debug got turned off.. it does that after 30 mins.
Then you got a report from the sensor, of the temp. (70.0F)
Almost 2hrs later you closed the sensor.
Then you opened it 5 seconds after.
Then comes a pair of reports again, 2hrs and10 mins after the first, with temp and battery.

In other words that device: Contact Sensor 18 is working normally.

I know that that sensor is working correctly.

Il, trying to add another sensor, and it somehow finds this one (that is already there and working correctly) and wont go past it to add the other sensor i am trying to add...

That;s the problem.

I tried to delete this one, and it just stopped on the next one that also was also working correctly and wouldn't identify the new one either.

I have no idea what is going on, but i'm stuck with 20 or so other sensors im trying to add, and i cant get past this point.

Like you, I am migrating from Iris. Are the devices in question 1st gen devices? If so, then they are currently not supported. That may change in the future. Gen 2 devices are supported.

1st Gen devices I have are the keypad, four contact sensors, one outlet, three keyfobs, and two cameras. I will hold on to them after Iris service ends in the hopes that one day, I will be able to use them again.

I started out with some 2nd gen devices, specifically two a 2nd gen Smart Keypad, two smart outlets and two smart fobs. I purchased an additional smart fob and some gen 2 contact sensors. Since they are supported, I purchased some Bosch motion detectors (Zigbee HA1.2) also. I also have the CT-101 Radio Thermostat, the First Alert Smoke/CO detector, the Utilitech siren and the glass break sensor which are all on the supported device list.

As others have said, it would help to identify what devices you re trying to connect and what generation they are. Also, it isn't enough to remove them from the Iris app. They need to be reset to be able to link with Hubitat if they are supported. There is information on the Iris site on how to do a reset on the various devices so they go back into pairing mode.

Battery powered devices usually need the help of wired devices to relay signals back to the hub. Zwave and Zigbee radios are low powered and may not have the range to connect directly especially if there are walls, appliances, and furnishing in the way.
Please post some details on the brands and model numbers of your devices.

They are all Zigbee Lightify Open/Closed Contact Sensors. Like I said, i added 18 of them with no issues then started running into the problem above. I don't know about the generation issue. I had trouble with them in SmartThings too, ( although I'm not sure if they are the same physical sensors that are causing trouble here) and they were removed from the SmartThings Hub before I switched to Hubitat.

Do you have any powered Zigbee repeaters in your system? You probably need one or two. Like a Zigbee outlet.

I'm sitting right next to the Hub

Does that make a difference?

What sort of trouble did you have? Do you have any Zigbee LED bulbs in your system? Some bulbs make lousy repeaters.

Best plan is to pair a device where it is going to live physically. Otherwise, your mesh gets messed up when you pair in one location and then move to another.
