Replacing a Z-wave switch near my Schlage lock


#1

I am planning to replace a Z-wave switch which is right next to the door with a Schlage connected lock. I know Schlage devices uses “beaming” to connect to Z-wave and have used the SmartThings app to replace devices before but never a device where the battery driven device was routing though. The switch was put in for the explicit reason to provide the network connection for the lock but now I have a real use case for that circuit.

What is the recommendation to make sure I don’t lose connectivity to the lock when replacing this switch?

Just run a zwave repair after you replace the device. That will build new address tables so the new switch is included. :sunglasses:
