While this is a very old thread, it touches on some of the issues I am having getting a Z-wave network to work properly with ST. I have 55 devices, about 1/2 Leviton including 2, and 4 button controllers. Some of these have integrated switches. The rest are dimmers, switches, or outlets that mostly run in slave mode to the controllers. The network has been setup and running using Vizia-RF for 5+ years. Controller buttons are programmed using the Vizia-RF software.
I added a ST controller to this network, it mostly joined and auto-loaded the network devices. Naming them was a pain (the existing name wasn’t loaded into ST) but with first trial/error, and then using the IDE and using the hex code I was I able to name most devices.
But I’m now stuck with roughly 6 slave modules that don’t auto-appear in ST. Adding one manually allowed it to appear on the web and the phone app, but control of the device fails from the app. The Vizia-RF program wants the ST device to be ‘re-included’ for updated information, but unlike most Z-wave devices, there is no physical button that puts the device into pairing mode. I haven’t yet opened the box to see if there is a physical switch inside.
Note that in this setup, Vizia-RF is the master. ST is a slave controller. From reading chats, this seems to be a minority of the setups I’ve seen.
Does anybody have any general advise and tips on how to get the ST device to see missing devices, update it’s status to the master, etc.? No, reprogramming the entire network with the ST as master isn’t an option.
Thanks in advance,
