I managed to pair in two Z-Wave objects without too much effort. I recently bought a GE 45609 wall switch for my kitchen lights and had issues but worked them out, and I also bought a GE 45604 Outdoor module that jumped right on the network. Once you know what you are doing, this is easy. And a Hardy Hi-Ho to those that chimed in previously to assist me. Thanks for the help.
One big helpful tool is the web utility in the Designer Tools, specifically the Device List. There you can edit / add devices to your network. To fix my light switch I simply created it manually and it worked. At first I set the Type as a “Z-Wave Virtual Momentary Contact Switch” and for the first time it worked!! However, by design, the lights came on for one full second then switched off. That’s when I knew the wiring was good, the switch worked, it was just a configuration issue. Then I simply switched it to the correct setting of “Z-Wave Switch” and now all is well. You can use any unique number for the device network ID… I used 01, 02, 03, etc… for my devices.
The outdoor switch (also a “z-wave switch”) simply jumped on and worked the first time, but I did make sure it was about 6 feet away from the hub when pairing. I still need to place it in its permanent home but it will be close to other devices so I should be good to go.
Let me get some time under my belt with these two devices and if they still work in a weeks time like they do now, I will let you know and give them an official plus one for compatibility with the Smart Things network.
