My wife and I recently moved house. I of course took my GE Z-wave switches with me along with my smartthings v1 hub. Additionally I deleted the location from my account (and the hub) hoping for a fresh start in the new house. After taking care of the welcome code issue from deleting the hub everything is back up and running now, with 3 exceptions.
I brought 3 GE On/Off paddle switches with me that were previously installed in my old house. I have installed them in the new house and they function properly in manual operation. However they would not connect to the hub. Last night I swapped 1 of them out for a brand new, fresh from amazon, switch and it connected quickly. I swapped another of them out for a new in box switch which I received some months ago, before the move, and it quickly connected as well.
What gives? Why wont the old switches connect? Is there a reset procedure that I can perform to get them to connect? The new in box switch sat in the same environment as the previously installed switches so i can think that it is environmental damage. I just dont get it.
