  • Trouble connecting kwikset zwave lock

    I just got my new Zee S2 in the mail on Friday and have successfully connected my thermostats, but I’m having trouble with my kwikset locks. I followed the instructions for connecting locks. First, I excluded each, then added them as new zwave devices. It seems to go through the connection process successfully. When I go to the devices tab, they show up, but don’t have any child devices and there is no way to control them. I have tried excluding and adding them several times with the same outcome each time. I have included screenshots below to help illustrate the issue. I have been looking through the forum all weekend and haven’t found any others with this issue. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks!

    What version of the Z-Wave plugin are you running?
    How far is the lock from your Z-Wave interface when you added these locks. Using the secure method the locks need to be within a few inches of your Z-Wave interface. Try moving the lock and Z-Wave interface closer and then remove and add again.

      Thanks for the reply. I’m using version of the zwave plugin. When I excluded and added the locks, I removed the electronic part from the door and put it within inches of the Zee S2. I did initially have trouble getting them to connect before removing them from the doors.
