Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

Hi again:

I'm still dead in the water with this. I've had no response since my last reply mid-September. Can I get some further assistance?

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

Let's back up and zoom out a bit on the troubleshooting here:

1) Choose the Interfaces->Z-Wave->Reload menu item then copy/paste the Event Log window results into a reply of the reload.

2) Are any of your Z-Wave devices working? If yes, what specific modules are working vs. not working?

3) With Z-Wave debug logging enabled, are you seeing any messages coming in from modules as they update (switches are controlled, sensors broadcasting updates, etc.)?

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

Thanks for your reply, Matt.

None of my Z-Wave devices are working. I did have a switch working as well as 2 motion/temperature sensors at one time.

Here is the log from the reload.

I'm not at home now - I did the above remotely. Still, I started the New Device prodcedure and I'm still not getting anything in the drop down "Sync using node:" . Please see attached.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

How many modules do you have and what types are they? Do you have any lamp or appliance modules we can troubleshoot against? Those would be easy to make sure they are in range of your Z-Stick to rule out range or RF interference problems.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

Thanks for your reply, Matt. Two motion sensors and 1 switch is what I had.

But I'm not sure why any of that matters. Does it? The motion sensors are 10 feet away from the Z stick. One of them worked totally fine before when it was up stairs (and the z stick is in the basement)!



The problem is on that dialogue box - Sync Using Node is blank. Is that related to the modules and their distance from the stick?

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

and please forgive me -I don't mean to sound like I know nearly enough to make that comment! :)

It just seems to me that the problem is between the stick and Indigo on the Mac. In other words, again, it seems to me if I had No devices at all, I should see a dialogue with that node selection being offered. Apologies if that's not the case.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

The behavior you are seeing is what I would expect to see if the modules had been included with a controller (Z-Stick) before and have not been excluded or factory reset.

The popup you see in the sync dialog is saying that the Z-Stick currently is not paired with any modules. That is, no modules have been "included" with it yet. Normally in this case the answer is to do the inclusion process, which once complete will then show that newly included module in the popup UI.

However, the modules themselves can only be included with a single controller (Z-Stick). If they have already been included previously (with either a different Z-Stick or the same Z-Stick if it was later factory reset, which is what you did) then they will fail to send any inclusion information at all to the Z-Stick. The solution is to follow the module's exclusion or factory reset steps (which vary based on the modules). Once the module no longer thinks it is included, the inclusion process should succeed. Note Indigo can tell the Z-Stick to "enter exclusion mode" so that it sends the exclusion command to the module (again though you have to follow the steps for the module's manual on what to do at the module). Also note that it doesn't matter if you are using a different Z-Stick (or a Z-Stick you factory reset) to do the exclusion commands with the modules. That is, it doesn't have to be the original controller that it was included with to do the exclusion.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

I've been trying to fix this situation on and off for almost a year. Still nothing. I bought an entirely new z-stick. It's there - it's green. I've reset the switch (hit on 3 times then hit off 3 times) .

But before I even get to dealing with the device, I'm dealing Indigo - the problem has to be on the server side of the switch.

Here is the log:
Mar 31, 2024 at 9:57:53 AM
Z-Wave Debug intiatingSyncUI (timeout in 1500 seconds)
Z-Wave Debug SENT enterInclusionMode: 01 04 00 4A C1 70
Z-Wave Debug RCVD enterInclusionMode: 06 (ACK)
Z-Wave started controller inclusion mode
Z-Wave Debug RCVD inclusionMode ready: 01 07 00 4A 01 01 00 00 B2

Mar 31, 2024 at 9:58:29 AM
Z-Wave Debug SENT exitInclusionMode: 01 04 00 4A 05 B4
Z-Wave Debug RCVD exitInclusionMode: 06 (ACK)
Z-Wave stopping controller inclusion mode
Z-Wave Debug RCVD inclusionMode finished: 01 07 00 4A 01 06 00 00 B5
Z-Wave stopped controller inclusion mode
Z-Wave Debug terminatingSyncUI

I continue to get this "No Available Node IDs in Controller" message. Why does this happen - even with a fresh, out-of-the-box, Z-Wave controller stick?

It seems to me without that ID nothing happens from there.

I appreciate your help - I really want to get this going again.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

That popup shows the node ID's for the modules that have been included into the controller. Because you are using a new controller and haven't yet included any modules into it, there are no node IDs from which to choose.

Re: Trouble reConnecting Z Wave device

I thought I had to choose one - ok.

Then for some reason this switch, and nothing else, is getting picked up by the controller.

I think I have a fresh, new switch - never been installed before - and see if that works.

Thanks for your response, Matt.
