reset the device next (after you get your hub restored)
Reset to factory default
This device also allows to be reset without any involvement of a Z-Wave controller. This procedure should only be used when the primary controller is inoperable.
To disconnect from the Z-Wave Network and restore factory default settings:1. Open the Back Plate and make sure the Siren is powered.1. Hold the Connect Button for 10 seconds until the LED Ring blinks once, then release the button.Only do this if the controller is missing or otherwise unreachable!
If the device was never paired with a system there should be NO to exclude it. But even a new device may have been paired for tested in the factory or it may have been a return. In those cases exclusion may be needed.
Some Z-Wave wave devices can be a royal pain to pair. I recently purchased some Monoprice Z-Wave contact sensors that were really cheap on clearance. It took as at least a dozen tries to get them paired. After the first one was paired I thought I had it figured out. But the second one was no easier to pair. Now I know why they were on clearance for so cheap.
The Dome Siren doesn’t support any security protocols which I think might be the reason why it often gets stuck when I attempt to join it using any method other than manually choosing z-wave from the brand list.
When you triple click the siren’s action button while joining the device does the LED start blinking?
I have tried the method in which you have suggested, however, i still am unable to pair the dome sirens.
When i press the button 3 times quickly, the LED flashes 5 times as suggested on the manual for inclusion mode.
The strange thing is, i have 3 new sirens, and neither of them have even been identified by my new Aeotec v3 or Smartthings v2 hub ( Selecting z-wave under brands, or Scan for nearby devices ).
I will retry all methods again, reset everything again etc. I dont see anyone else experiencing issues similar to this. I was searching in hope i was doing something wrong, but i believe i have done it correctly.
