I have now made the same mistake three times. I reset a z-wave device and needed to reconnect the device to the hub. I figured you couldn’t add it again if it was already there so I deleted it, and then force deleted it to get rid of it. After, I tried to re-add the devices but they never show up again. I am able to add other similar devices but can’t add these devices (one device is a lock, one wall switch and one light bulb).
I’ve tried repairing z-wave, general device exclusion and include/exclude hub. If factory reset each of the devices, but they never show up when trying to add them.
When you force delete, are you deleting them forever? Is there any way to fix this?
