I am using a SmartThings hub with a variety of Z-Wave devices. This technology is, of course, far superior to the X10 system I’ve used in the past. However, I still experience “issues” with some devices from time to time.
For example, I use a Jasco/GE dimmer wall switch to control and dim my outdoor coach lights. Recently, it simply stopped working. I can manually control the lights and dim them at the switch but I have no control via the SmartThings iOS app (awful) nor my handheld controller.
Today, my Schlage lock stopped working in the same manner. The lock works fine at the lock but not remotely. I’ve tried resetting the hub with no positive results. Most of the other Z-Wave devices, mostly lighting controls, seem to be functioning properly.
I know these devices are wireless and consequently a bit flaky. Nonetheless, it’s frustrating. Any suggestions and/or advice would be appreciated.
