  • Can't communicate with 2gig Thermostat - WAF evaporating in the TX heat wave

    I've got a relatively small Z-Wave network (7 devices) with a Z-Troller (running 1.15 firmware). Two of the devices on the network are 2gig thermostats that I've had for about 4-5 months and have yet to get working properly for more than a day or two now and then.

    For starters, I get this in the log everytime HS starts:

    Code:

    Z-Seer gives me the following look at my network:




    Notice the downstairs thermostat doesn't connect directly to the controller, and it's only neighbor is the upstairs tstat - this despite the fact that the z-troller is 6 feet away from the downstairs tstat now!! (I drilled a hole through the wall between the computer closet and ran the serial cable/ztroller out to a more open, central location - only a few feet from where it was, but less physical interference).

    HELP!! I'm tired of it failing to set the temperature properly or even let me monitor it, and ending up with a hot house when I get home or with a huge electricity bill because it's failing to set it back to a more economical temp in the morning.

    If you only have this many devices I would visit each device and delete them, then reset the controller using the Z-Wave menu. Then revisit each device starting to the ones closest to the controller and moving outward. Also ensure that any devices directly communicating with the tstats supports Z-Wave Beaming technology or the stat will not work.

    Also what version of HS are you running?

      If I do that, it will break all my events that use those devices, right? Not a problem (though a significant annoyance since some of them are used frequently), just need to be prepared.

      I'm running 2.5.0.23.

      Can you explain the beaming thing? If my tstat is a few feet from the ztroller, why does it matter if the lamp module 15 feet away supports beaming or not?
