Aeon Labs HEM v1; ZWave Plus?

I bought the Aeon Labs HEM v1 a few years ago, but finally got it installed and operational. It seems to be working well enough now, but this is the only “ZWave Plus” item I have paired, and I wondered if I did it right.

Basically, it’s functioning, but I believe it’s connected in normal ZWave; I see this in the IDE:

  • networkSecurityLevel: ZWAVE_LEGACY_NON_SECURE

Not sure if that really ends up mattering, but I have a lot of other items that are ZWave Plus that will be added soonish, and I just wanted to have this procedure sorted out before I am trying to repair improperly added items.

That is normal

“Normal”, as in “that means it’s connected as a ZWave+ device”, or normal as in “it always says that”?

How do I verify if it has connected ZWave+, or does it ALWAYS connect as ZWave+?

Security level isn’t the same as Z-wave plus. That field for indicating whether the device connected using S2 security or not. The v1 HEM doesn’t have S2, so that is normal.

So I’ll just leave it as it is. Thanks!

The HEM v1 is not a zwave plus device. It’s just zwave, and the message you see is normal. Zwave devices with “S2” security will have a different message, as @Automated_House mentioned above.
