I think I know the answer to this, but this is driving me crazy(er?)
Along with the current Firmware update that’s wreaking havoc with my Z-Wave stuff in general (as well as my SmartThings motion sensor in particular), I have a specific issue that I’d like help with.
I have a KwikSet 912 Z-Wave Door Lever/Lock that’s within 5-6 feet of the hub - although there are also at least (6) other Z-wave (mains) devices that are just as close or even closer. The 912 was purchased and installed in August 2016 and may need to be replaced soon. Increasingly, it seems to drop off the Z-Wave mesh (which generally seems to be fairly good) much more often since the recent firmware update. I’ve just been pulling the battery pack for a few seconds and then dropping it back in to kind of reboot it. Before I spend $$ to replace it, I’m waiting until that issue settles down to ensure i’m not buying a replacement lock for nothing.
For some reason, a large number of my z-Wave devices seem to always want to route through the KwikSet so when it drops off the Z-wave mesh. so do they. Is there a way to have the KwikSet not put itself in such a pivotal place in the net?
