I have built a new house, and have fully committed to Aeotec dimmers and dual switches everywhere plus a few Fibaro RGBW switches, using the wifi hub. It’s been a complete disaster and my wife is absolutely fed up. The latest incident is that my son fell down stairs and has a possible fracture because the step lights could not be turned on. I will push all of the emotion and frustration down and try to ask a single constructive question…
I am unable to delete Aeotec or Fibaro switches. I have gone into the new app, have pressed “Delete device”, and have pressed the momentary switch connected to S1 (or IN1) 3 times in rapid succession (I’ve tried ~300ms and 1s between presses). It always fails. Retry fails. Force delete fails. Repair Z-Wave network doesn’t help, and nothing found in Z-Wave exclusion mode.
I haven’t tried pulling the devices out of the wall to press the action (or B) buttons. It’s illegal in Australia for me to access the wiring as I don’t have an electrical licence. Also, as I need to do this for about 20 devices now, and surely many times in future, it’s just not practical to dismantle a wall switch and pull wiring out of the wall every time.
Why am I not able to delete these switches?
