    Using the Ultraloq U-Bolt Z-Wave

    Is anyone using the new Ultraloq U-Bolt Z-Wave with Homeseer? If do does it work?

    I just purchased two - love the locks. No luck yet getting them connected to homeseer.

      I have the z-wave lock. I had no problem including the lock. I had an issue with an S2 response timeout using my original Z-net. Once I upgraded the z-net to the G3 version, it has worked fine with no complaints in the log.

        Hi Kirby:

        I have four of the U-Bolt Zwave series dead bolt locks. My issues is they wipe out my HomeSeer Z-Wave light switches after I add them to the HomeSeer Z-Wave system.

        I first added four locks to HomeSeer and they worked great. Full control and status updates all worked.

        I then added five HomeSeer light switches and made sure the light switches worked (and they did).

        I noticed that I could not lock/unlock the U-Bolt locks anymore, but the status would update if I manually locked/unlocked them.

        Long story, but I did wind up unsubscribing all four locks from the Z-Wave system (through the HomeSeer Z-Wave plugin app) and re-subscribed them. Again, all worked as before, but again, my Z-Wave switches would loose control in HomeSeer (I tried rescanning and they would act like they disappeared from the Z-Wave network).

        Were you able to add these locks AND use some type of Z-Wave products like light switches?

        Thanks,

        BSR

          I have two fingerprint Z-Wave locks. I like them because I don't have to give a kids a PIN, just use a finger when they get home from school. Other than some minor warnings during pairing, ( assume they are compatibility related) this lock provides Z-Wave functionality just fine, like my old Schlage first gen deadbolts. I can Remote unlock/lock and PIN setting. This is good for ad-hoc users and ad-hoc or event-based locking. I use the app via BT to set family users so that I can set fingerprints (and PINS for adults). Unlike BraveSirRobbin, no interference with other Z-Wave devices, but i had some issues with both locks that it would forget it's orientation and jam up, but the Z-Wave status would change and show that the door was locked when it was not. I opened up a ticket and they replaced the motor portion of the lock, (the inside portion) and I bought another lock and had the same problem and they replaced the same part so it must be a known issue. They have been fine ever since. I don't think there is an alternative right now for Z-Wave locks with fingerprints. ‚Äč

            ottom8, are you running the latest firmware in the locks? Do you have any HomeSeer Z-Wave lighting/switches as well? What type of Z-Wave interface are you using?

            Thanks for the info as I'm trying to understand differences between our systems that is causing my issue.

            Regards,

              Np, I'm running latest 02.26.0022 Latest FW on the locks. I have ~40 WX300 R2 Dimmers ~8 HSM200 Sensors. I have an older HomeSeer SmartStick + from a few years ago. It would drive me nuts if my lights disappeared. Good Luck
