I have two zwave ghosts that I've been trying to get rid of for quite awhile. I've tried refreshing them, removing them and waiting a week but they still persist. They're probably not hurting anything besides my OCD, but still.
I know these were created when I updated firmware on some zooz switches and had to re include them as new devices.
The one that trips me out is the one that shows a route. That one keeps saying no longer in failed node list too.
Yeah because the ghost matches an active device (which is why you see the ghost) If you know the device that created the ghosts, you can try powering that down, power cycling the hub (shut down and unplug for 5 mins and power back up) then try to remove the ghost. If that still fails, you need a z-wave stick.
Unfortunatly I don't know which of my 5-6 zooz switches it was from. I guess I could try killing them one at a time and try the remove. Those are about my only zwave devices so I don't think I want to pull power on them all at once.
When I use to have issues with my Z-Wave mesh in the past, I would occasionally turn off all my breakers and pull batteries from all Z-Wave devices and fix them. I had my hub and switches on UPS, which allowed me to do this.
Out of curiosity - In the Z-Wave Details screen, is there an option to update the firmware? There were some issues from older firmware that were resolved and removing ghost should work better with the new firmware. That said, there are exceptions to every rules, and the Z-Wave stick does remove them very well. Just a bit of a pain to get and install the related software.
Well this is frustrating. Got my zooz stick, and installed the simplicity software but Windows 10 just keeps detecting it as a generic serial port. I can't find and Bin\ZW050x_USB_VCP_PC_Driver folder anywhere on my PC to update it in device manager manually..
