Kwikset 910 Zigbee Battery Level Reporting


(Kmp14) #1

I have 2 Kwikset 910 locks with Zigbee. They are not reporting updated battery life back to smarthings. I took the batteries out of 1 of the locks and tested them, and all batteries reported 80%, but in Smartthings the lock still shows 100%. This was a couple weeks ago, and many lock/unlock cycles, but it still shows 100% in Smartthings. Anyone had this issue? Any ideas on how to fix?

…but it gets a wee bit more complicated. These locks used to have the Zwave module in them, but I was having problems with them becoming disconnected from Smartthings (not sure what that was), anyway, I found an eBay’er selling Zigbee modules for the 910, so I bought 2 and replaced the Zwave with Zigbee. They are working flawlessly, with the exception of the battery level reporting issue.

I have a Kwikset 910 Z-Wave that has been working great for over a year. I have a Leviton light switch about 2 feet away which acts as a repeater. My battery status is reporting properly as far as I can tell. There are several stock device handlers available and at least one that can be purchased. Have you tried any of those?

I’m running the stock “Z-Wave Lock” I like it because it runs locally. My battery is reporting 60% today.

Also be aware that typically battery status is reported infrequently to save battery power. Some other battery operated sensors I have do not report battery status properly, if at all.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Try to “reset” your lock, sometimes that helps if battery levels are stuck

Any tips on the "right’ way to reset a 910? I have find differing instructions on how to officially reset it. Thanks!
