    I'm wondering the same...

    What is a good brand for Z-Wave outlet? Preferably Z-Wave Plus.

    Cool theory. One came back, two did not. Usually they do not come back at all after we lose power.

    Two of the receptacles are on the generator circuits and one is not. The one that came back is on a generator circuit, so of the two that are still failed, one is and one is not tied to generator.

    Z-Wave Receptacles stop communicating after power failure

    We lost power for about 10 minutes yesterday, but long enough for the generator to spin up. Afterwards, none of my 3 Z-wave receptacles (Enerwave ZW15R) were communicating. Generator power isn't the cleanest, but is it likely to be the cause of these devices falling off? If so, could someone recommend a better brand?
