  • How to Replace a Defective Z-Wave Device

    1. Update your software to the latest version.
    2. make note of the node number and device id for the module that's defective. If you're relacing a device that has several "child" devices (like a multi-sensor or lock), make note of the device id for each child device too.
    3. add your new module using our Z-Troller (or other suitable Z-Wave controller) and run the "import devices" command. The new module will be found and added to the status page with a new node number and device id.
    4. delete the old (defective) device from your status page
    5. click on the new device to configure it and enter the old device id to it. Be sure to update all child devices too.
    6. save the settings.
    When done, your new module should work seamlessly with your existing events.

    Mark,

    Perhaps you could add information on using the "Replace" option under "Tools".

      I cannot see this option anywhere.
