Its my first post so I hope this is the right category.
I have a GE Smart in-wall paddle switch Z-Wave that was installed by my electrician about a year ago for my garage ligths. I was able to sync all my GE switches (about eight) to my ST with no issues.
Today, I couldn’t turn my garage lights on by the use of the paddle and I noticed the little blue light on the switch was slowly flashing. I logged into my ST app and it said it couldn’t connect to the device.
I removed the device from the ST app with no issues. I looked up the GE Zwave devices FAQ and tried to get the device in paring mode bu tapping he ‘on’ paddle times fast, tapped the on three times then off three times, pulled the air gap button and cycles the switch. After each reset of the switch I tried to find it with my ST app on my phone with no luck. I recycled the ST hub by pulling the power chord for a few minutes. It rebooted and still cant find the switch.
Is the switch just plain dead and can’c sync because it’s receiver is dead? Why can’t it just work like a switch and turn on and off the lights?
Thanks ahead for any help y’all can provide!!
