    Yes. Did that a few times. I ended up recovering backups from a week ago for the zwave and HS3 to at least get the existing kit working. I now have most of it working, just can't add any new devices

    Did you try resetting your Z-Wave data as previously mentioned?

    The system report says 900. Of which about 190 is a z-wave device and its children.

    I tried a brand new, out of the box wall socket and had the same issue - tried to add it as an existing node.

    How many Z-Wave devices do you have? After 232 you need to start a new network.

    OK. changed the zWave PI to 3.0.1.252 which looks like a non-beta release. Same problem. Its a mess!!! 2 days now wasted - Looks like I'm going to have to rebuild the whole damn thing from scratch - not impressed!!!

    The new nodes (TKB Wall sockets) have been excluded and manually reset before trying to add as new

    Time to look at a new system I think

    Rupp - what does resetting the z-wave data do and what do I need to do after I have reset it?

    What version of HS3 are you running? What version of the Z-Wave plugin are you running? Try going to Plugins > Manage and click on the Z-Wave plugin. Then choose the "Reset Z-Wave Data" button as something is corrupt in your Z-Wave tables.

    started a topic Adding device picks a node that's already in use

    Adding device picks a node that's already in use

    When I add a new z-wave device it is picking a node that already in use and tramples all over it making the original device unusable. I tried adding a PIR and it selected a node that was a wall socket and changed it to a battery device that would test ok for comms but not actually do any switching!

    Removing the node using both devices doesn't fix the problem, as the removal shows OK but doesn't do anything.

    I have tried the usual fixes such as deleting items from devices and from the root. I have tried reimporting, rescanning and backup/restore and nothing fixes it.

    I can't find anything related in the forum, but there is so much stuff about including etc that I might have missed it...

    Any ideas - I have wasted a whole day so far!!

    Cheers
    Scott
