ref: my old post
So… one of my enbrighten (formerly GE) by Jasco zwave light switch devices failed. It was a new one, that is zwave plus, and it was a replacement of an older model in the same position on the same circuit, that had also failed.
The failure this time mimicked how it happened last time: I noticed it was offline per ST hub. I then went to the switch to turn it on manually and it did not respond. Last time it was truly dead I think (I recycled it so cannot double check it now.) But this time, I flipped off my circuit breaker controlling it, left it off for 15 seconds, then re-enabled the circuit breaker. And guess what, the jasco switch works as expected!
So, that’s good. But… any ideas why it happened? (And any guesses if I had a fluke or should expect more issues with this switch…?)
This is the device in question (the latest model of this variety, which replaced an older model I had in there months ago):
