    Update ... the HS-WS100 wall switches are all working as they did before. Also, any linked devices that were reliant on HS-WS100 and/or HS-WD100 wall switches/dimmers are also now working properly. Very strange.

      I've also had 5 of them fail over the past year or two with similar behavior. clicking on/off, spamming the zwave network with binary reports. I have noticed that that it's been after power has been disconnected at the breaker box (power outages, and when after power restore after having a subpanel installed) Any tips on how they could be resurrected?

        I just had a HS-WD100 fail, but it failed in a slightly different way where the load was stuck on. It was still responding to zwave and reporting that it was turned off when you tried to turn it off, but the load never actually shut off.

        I may put a note on it and throw it in my box of random stuff in case I need a remote switch with no load at some point.

          Have another one displaying same symptoms today. Tired of this.

            I have 8 of them die with similar symptoms: Blinking lights every 1 second. Some of them spammed the zwave network over and over - looks like they got caught in a reboot loop or something. I'd love to figure out how to resurrect them. Started by clicking every 1 second, spamming zwave network then quiet on the network, but still blinking the indicator light every second.

              I've had 5 GE/Jasco switches fail with exactly these symptoms.

                I have 9 dead HS-WS100+ devices, A power outage has been involved with most (if not all) of my failures. When the light is 'on' and there is a power outage, that's when they die with the 1s click of death. My Zwave network was spammed over and over too until I removed them. Seems like a hardware or firmware issue to me, not able to reconcile the state after losing power. I'd love to learn how to resurrect them.

                  I officially am up to 9 failed HS-WS100+ devices. Another one died when replacing my 8th. In each case, the switches were 'on' during a power loss event (Power outage or turning off a circuit to replace another switch). I hadn't done any firmware updates on my switches. Is this a known issue that is fixed in a newer firmware?

                  Is there a way to completely reset these switches? I'd love to learn how to resurrect them. Homeseer - I'd love to make this a success story rather than a bunch of e-waste.

                    I just had a HS-WD100 apparently fail. The z-wave controller sees it, it appears to function normally with the leds display but the load lights never come on. I tried resetting via instructions and rescanning to no avail. I also pulled out the little tab for physical disconnect and pushed back in.

                    Thoughts?

                    Also, I just stumbled across this dimmer, https://www.zwaveproducts.com/collec...mmer-zl-wd-100

                    It seems it's the same as the HS WD-100 but a lot less $$. Has anyone tried these?
