Kwikset Zwave Works Intermittently


(Daniel Martinez) #1

When someone unlocks the lock with a code, sometime I get a notification:
FrontDoor was unlocked with code 2

However, this notification comes only intermittently. More often than not, it does not work.

I tried to repair the Zwave network, but I get these messages:
Z-Wave network repair finished
Network repair for Power Outlet [05]: Failed to update route
Network repair for FrontDoor [02]: Failed to update route
Network repair for Power Outlet [05]: Failed to update mesh info
Z-Wave network repair started

I have a kwikset 910. A GE power outlet in between the hub and the lock. The distance is about 15 feet between each.

Has it worked and then just started not working? I’ve found with my Kwikset, I have to change the batteries pretty frequently. Even, if it reports at 40 or 50%, I have to change them otherwise it is intermittent communicating with the hub.

It has worked more frequently in the past. The battery meter says that it is at 80%.

I’m having the exact same issue. A lock that worked flawlessly with my older Vera 2 will not heal properly via Network Repair and never refreshes its status via ST. It paired fine and worked/reported for a week but then started behaving strangely and not updating or locking on command. There are two GE switches within a foot of the lock, and the hub is less than 8 feet away. Batteries are a week old.
It’s a puzzle.
