I have a Leviton DZ15S switch that has been working fine in Hubitat for several weeks now. Today, I noticed its status was set to "On". I tried turning it off within a dashboard tile and all I get "Sending..." message. Only way to stop this is to exit that dashboard. I tried to turn it off directly from within the Devices menu option and nothing appears to happen. It always shows as being "On"
I checked the physical device and it is responding to Hubitat On/Off commands so it appears it works but Hubitat is not changing or getting a status update.
I have been using the Generic Zwave Smart Switch DH but also tried the Generic Zwave Switch DH. No difference.
I tried a Zwave repair on just that device as well as a hub reboot. No difference.
Other than excluding/including this device, are there any other option I can try?
Hubitat Elevation® Platform Version - 126.96.36.199 Hardware Version - Rev C-7
Ok, I found a post of someone with a similar problem which (s)he solved by turning off then on the circuit breaker for that switch. What do you know. It worked. Sure like to understand why though and why only the status updates were not working.
Some dimmers and switches (GE is one, as I recall) have an air gap tab you can pull that removes power to the switch without having to switch a breaker. The tab is accessible from the front of the switch or dimmer.
No I did not. After reading through it it apears lots of people had the same problem and most claim a FW update solved the problem. I cant seem to find a FW version number anywhere in the device description so I dont really know if I need to upgrade or what
Yeah, that is a real problem. Tons of posts in multiple forums talk about the update process and different versions but none have a link to a download server. Leviton website seems useless or at last absent of any FW downloads. I may have to bite the bullet and talk to them
Yes, it appears to be 1.20 but on all my research, I am 99% sure there is at least a v1,4.3 out there. I did find a link to v1,4.3 but that appears to be for the wifi devices. If I cant find anything higher I just might try to install v1.2
Clarification need please.
When using the Device Firmware Updater, do you upload the whole zip file? Or do you extract it first and upload only a specific DLL?
I have a DZ6HD dimmer which happily is in that zip.
