I have a v2 Hub and recently added about 100 Zwave devices (mostly Fibaro light switches – Dimmer 2 and Single Switch 2). I am using the Classic App, and have defined approximately 10 Rooms (each with roughly 10 devices).
Although my devices appear to be “substantially” working, about 5 of them are getting “HUB_DISCONNECTED” messages and occasionally an OFFLINE message in the IDE.
The symptoms of both messages appears to be the same. In the Room view on the Classic app, the “problem” Fibaro device shows as “Unavailable” (with no toggle On/Off button). Yet, when I click on the name of the device, I get a more detailed screen, which includes an icon to toggle the device On or Off.
What is surprising is that the functionality on this more detailed screen WORKS FINE. It turns the device On and Off, with the state change reflected on the screen (and the lights actually turn On or Off).
Yet, the IDE still shows the HUB_DISCONNECTED message, even though everything (except the initial Room view screen) works fine.
I also have one Fibaro switch which the IDE showed as “OFFLINE”. It exhibited precisely the same behavior, except that, once I remotely turned it On and Off, the IDE quickly changed to “ONLINE.”
I’m mostly curious what the differences (if any) are between these 2 IDE messages (HUB_DISCONNECTED and OFFLINE), and whether they are going to change over time. They seem to be present with respect to the same 5-6 devices (out of about 100 devices). There is nothing obviously distinct about these devices. Some are closer to the Hub, most are Fibaro Single Switch 2 devices, though 1 is a Dimmer 2 device.
I guess I could remove them from the Hub, and then re-discover them.
But, I’m wondering whether anyone has experienced anything similar, or has any other troubleshooting suggestions.
I’m hoping this will not be a recurring problem affecting different devices over time.
Appreciate any thoughts.
