I've excluded it again once already in Z Wave Controller, so I can clear it from the Z Wave Details page. However if it won't pair successfully anymore, I can no longer include anything. I've gone through this process with the USB stick many times and never had an issue so I can only suspect it's the Z Wave Update. Any ideas anyone? Tagging @danabw (who's guide document I use)
You may have to put the stick into inclusion mode again (dont reset it), and then press discover. I cannot remember for sure if thats how I cleared the discover or not on other devices that got stuck pairing.
Also have you tried, after removing the failed pairing, full hub shut down and power cycle? Then try pairing again.
Just some thoughts, but may very well be some sort of issue with the new zwave firmware that nothing is going to get around.
The Z Stick How to is here: Z-Wave Ghost Removal using a UZB-Stick - How To with a link to download a PDF. That PDF has some specific instructions when it comes to adding your Z Stick as well as using it to add devices without security. (See page 8 towards the bottom)
Firstly, you should use "Select Learn Mode" and then Choose "NWI" as opposed to the "classic learn mode"
Lastly, I would add the step of clicking the shield in the upper right corner and unchecking all of the security boxes. It looks like you managed to include your stick with no security, but that would help to ensure it. (I had issues with mine not wanting to include with no security)
NOTE: I will add that after I used my Z Stick to pair the devices I wanted, I had to reboot my hub to get them to show up in my device listing and Z Wave details. Then, I had to click discover. I only had two that I wanted to add. I did the "inclusion, update (in PC Controller App), reboot hub, discover (In Zwave Details on HE), then rename device process" for each device individually. I did not try to add both devices together.
Just had a look. I HAD forgot to disable the various checkboxes in the security scheme. It may be that since getting my new laptop and installing Z Wave Controller, that I've not used it. However as you say it did partially include. I disabled those, excluded the controller and re included - same result.
Previously it would fully include and I would be asked to name it in the Hubitat inclusion (usually I just named it ZZZ). That's how I knew everything was ok. However in your details above, it's saying that it doesn't matter if it doesn't appear in 'Devices' so long as it appears in 'Z Wave Details' and the devices show up in the Controller app - which they do.
Perhaps I've wrongly assumed that it's not ready to use for inclusion, when in fact it is (it's not like me at all to throw my toys out of the pram at the slightest issue )
I'll re include again and try to add my device and see what happens....
No joy it doesn't work. Although all devices show in Z Wave Controller and Z Wave Controller is shown with a route in Z Wave Details, I cannot include a device. A NWI on the Z Wave Controller adds the device there, but nothing shows on Hubitat anywhere.
Whoever at SiLabs is responsible for forcing this inclusion issue wants hanging from their bollocks. We should not have to p**s about with additional hardware and software, reboots, power downs just to add a device in a manner that won't crash the mesh. It's completely twatful (another phrase to add to US English!)
Edit - this sorted it - never had to fanny around like this previously but thanks @tray_e
All I can think of is to check the com port in the Z Wave Controller settings. I find it often loses the stick version. Click the gear wheel for Settings to open the Network Management panel. As you can see below mine is not showing a version and Ive found it sometimes doesn't work when it's like this:
There is a step by step walk-through of what you need to do to get it to connect I posted earlier in the thread (See post number 5). Just noting that it covers the issue of making sure the version number shows up.
You might go step by step, tediously following the process and note if/where you can't follow a specific step or get a different result than the instructions state. That way, you might have a better focus on just what went wrong and others might be able to help with added information.
Since you are dealing with a computer OS (WIndows/Mac), a software bundle SI Labs, hardware from your computer as well as the z stick itself, AND Hubitat, there are multiple points of failure that could occur. Knowing which specific step helps to isolate that for troubleshooting.
Note, the link in my post takes you to a community post with a link to a downloadable step-by-step document. Click the link in that post to open the document. I linked the whole community post though because it has a bit of discussion about usage that I found useful.
Mine is the 700 model. I have been using it successfully for months. I tried to use it again about a week ago and it just refused to pair. I uninstalled the Silicon app and cleaned the registry and restarted and reinstalled and followed @danabw 's instructions multiple times and it just refused to pair with my Hubitat from five feet away. I did exclusions and NWI and every combination and permutation. No go. In other news, my Shade 4 opened perfectly this morning.
My Aeotec Gen 5 is problematic. Previously it would pair and show in the devices page, when I included anything using it, the new device would also appear in the devices page and pair properly.
Now what happens is that the Z Stick pairs but doesn't appear in the Device page (just Z Wave details page) All devices are visible in the Z Wave controller app. When I include a device using Z Wave controller, it appears there but doesn't sync to Hubitat. I have to reboot Hubitat, then go into Z Wave details page and click Discover on the semi paired new device to get it to complete. Even after all of that, the new device is missing some info that means that a number of entries show as 'No Data' in the Z Wave Details app as shown below (perhaps someone can remind me how to correct that, I believe there's a driver I can use to add the missing info in - I did that once before)
Previously I could fire up Z Wave Controller, include the stick, include the new device, exclude the stick in just a couple of minutes. Now it's a complete s**t show and takes forever. I need another Z Wave outlet or two currently, but haven't bothered getting them as it's too much of a tart on to add anything now. I don't think I'll be adding to the system anymore due to these issues. God I'm miserable
