I have a Linear Go Control Garage door opener that went offline today. I tried everything to get it back without success. I excluded it and paired it 3 different times. Twice by using the scan method, and once using the by brand/type method. (excluding between each). All 3 times it comes up as contact Device Z-wave Maquerade. I can’t get this thing to work again. It looks like it was migrated to Edge Driver recently. I didn’t have this issue when it was DTH.
If I want to switch my openers to the EDGE driver, do I need to remove and then add them back? They are using a custom device handler now and haven’t been migrated. I have a lot of zwave devices that haven’t migrated, many using custom handlers.
I have subscribed to the beta channel already and added the driver.
If you want to use an edge drive you must exclude them from the system, remove the custom DTH then reinclude the device back into SmartThings. If you have routines that interact with the opener, before you remove it from the system add a VR switch into the routine to act as a placeholder. Then once the device is added back ina nd running the driver simply go back into the routines and replace the VR switch with the opener. This keeps you from having to rebuild routines from scratch.
