    Just trying to find if there is a pattern here with these questions. Could you let me know about these.

    If possible, you should consider making an image of your Z-Net. I have images of mine when it was factory-new and a couple of times when it was working along the way.
    yep did the same thing when it was new, dealt with pi's before and know they can sometimes scramble the memory card

    Glad you got it sorted out.

    You might take this opportunity to shut everything down and take a good backup of everything and store them in a folder like "Good Working System YYYYMMDD" or something to that effect.

    In fact, I'm going to do the same to mine now

    THANK YOU !!

    This is what I did:
    You may need to do total reset of the interface. Supposedly there are rare cases where the routing can get all messed up and the interface locks up. To do a reset, first back up the network using the back up option in the Z-Wave controller management page. Then do a restore. The restore will do a total erase of the interface, then restore all the nodes. At this point the routing table is empty, then do a would do a node connectivity test first and see if the interface can communicate with all your nodes( Might not). If so, don't bother to optimize. If NOT, then run the optimize until the node connectivity succeeds.
    That seems to have fixed it right up. as we all know when your system goes down its very frustrating

    thanks again

    Same thing happed to me. What version of z-net are you on? Did you update to .17 recently?

    I still got a couple of errors after this, but it time it worked it self out.

    THis could be interference or bad device taking down the network. I believe the best way to troubleshoot it to turn off all the breakers except the ones with your Z-NET and homeseer and keep turning them on testing for reliable network until you find the bad device.

    Someone may have a better idea. Just rebooting all the devices via your breakers might cure it too.

    Is your Z-Net reachable? You probably have, but just in case, bounced the Z-Net and your HS machine.
    yes some buttons ans switches work some don't and it all seems random as to what works at what time

    Can you do a "Test Connectivity on a Network " under Z-wave CONTROLLER Page. What does it show?

    now i get these messages:

    Z-Wave Warning Z-Wave Multilevel Sensor device Apartment power data dishwasher switch watts now is missing Sensor Type information - cannot update sensor status.

    any idea on how to fix this, both of the zwave units are aeon labs in line power switches with reporting
    Try re-scanning the devices, that fixed it for me way back.
