I bought 3 Everspring door contacts (EVR_HSM02) to use with my garage doors.
Due to these being zwave only, it is my assumption that they have to be included while in range of the hub. So thats what I did.
I included these onto the network while they were in range of my hub.
I then took these contacts and mounted them in their locations on the garage doors. This is some considerable distance away from the hub, but in range of three powered Zwave devices (the relays that fire the garage doors).
These powered relays have no problem communicating with the hub, but it seems the two sensors furthest away cannot. They never update status.
lets say the doors are 1,2 & 3. The sensors A, B & C.
the sensors are about 6ft lower down than the relays, so the setup is like this
All relays work in smartthings, but sensors B & C do not. Sensor B is closer to the hub than relay 3, yet it still doesn’t work. Also there is a Zwave+ socket another 15 ft further away than even these sensors, and that works fine - but it is powered and also Zwave+ so not a fair comparison.
I can only assume that the sensors have not updated a routing table, and are still trying to communicate through the devices that they could see when first included, or trying to communicate directly to the hub. which now the furthest two away can no longer see.
Any advice much appreciated.
Is there any way to force an update of the route for these battery devices?
