So I finally got around to installed a half dozen or so 45609’s. I thought they were the GE Version, but when I tried to add that version of the dimmer it said it did not match and I cancelled.
I went ahead and tried the Jasco and it seems to recognize it better, but I cannot control the light.
Basically, I went to:
Switches & Dimmers
Jasco In-Wall Lighting Control On/Off Switch
When it goes to searching, I quickly tap the top of the wall switch and it finds it.
I give it a name with no special actions.
Then, when I go to my Things, it’s there, but turning it off/on does absolutely nothing.
I went ahead and removed them (I had to force remove in the app, twice) and tried a couple of times but it’s the same issue.
Is there something special I need to do to “reset” the switch back to default settings?
I’m a bit concerned because I also installed (3) of the VIZIA CRCS2-MRZ RF 2 Button Units and I have heard those are really tough to get going.
UPDATE: Some are working, some are not. Some units I need hit the switch on/off a couple of times before they are detected. I tried the Vizia and it doesn’t find them at all.
I was thinking it could be distance, but there are switches that work that are further than the hub than the additional switches are from switches. ie: Hub to first switch is 50’, it works. Hub to second switch is 100’, but only 20’ from the first switch. With Z-Wave, the distance is only 20’, right? The first switch should repeat the network to the second whether it is on or off?
