    Mark, what is the P# Nomenclature break down for these switches?

    I get HS=HomeSeer, and WS = Wall Switch and WD = Wall Dimmer, etc..; but what is the 100+ about?

    That may be the case with mine as well. I am impatient and after ten minutes they were still slow. The other thing that drove me to exclude/include is the absolute fact that my first was not right until I went through the process.

    If you have a lot of events tied to the switch, it might be easier to leave it under the original inclusion, if it is functioning properly.

    Will all switches come with this new firmware from this point on or will we have to upgrade once the switch is installed?

    Now that the first batch is out in the wild and has amazing reviews...It's time to start ordering some of these!
    Bryan - Anything manufactured after today will have the new firmware by default. However, earlier units can be updated pretty easily.

    Yes, this is documented in the READ-ME file (thanks to your experience).

    Thanks Randy!

    I used it on three switches. One was bad all of the time and the other two were intermittent.

    The first was the one that was always acting up. The firmware took just shy of 12 minutes to upload, so be patient. The firmware did not fix that one. I power cycled it and it still was acting up. Then I excluded it and included it again and it was fixed. I have tested it extensively and it is working perfectly.

    The second switch I tried was one that was intermittent. The firmware took about 11 minutes again and indicated that it was failing but trying again. It completed successfully. The switch worked perfectly after the upload. I did notice that the switch was extremely slow getting to the root configuration. I excluded/included it and it became very fast getting to the configuration page.

    The third switch was on a different Z-Net and a different network. This update took about 6 minutes and the switch was working perfectly. Again, it became extremely slow loading the configuration page and again excluding/including it cured the slowness. The first two on my primary Z-Net showed "Direct (40K)" and the third showed "Direct (100K)" which would explain the speed difference. I have no idea how the Z-Net decides the speed, because all three switches were within 15 feet of each controller.

    Now with over 24 hours on the firmware, the problem has not manifested itself. My takeaways are that the firmware definitely solves the problem, but it might be a good idea to exclude/include them in HomeSeer again after the update if anything seems to be wrong.

    I know and read it--if it was a bit later, I could have grabbed a beer to enjoy. The update seems to fix the issue, much appreciated

    I applied it to one switch and, so far, so good -- though the firmware took a bit of time to upload

    Yep, late last night, wasn't paying attention. Thanks.

    OK, the v5.14 firmware is now available for download here: http://www.homeseer.com/current-downloads.html

    Be sure to follow the instructions in the READ-ME file.

    Note: you may have to re-include the switch into your network after the update but test first.
