Great news on fixing the beaming issues with this firmware update. I never experienced that myself, but I only had one Kwikset lock prior to doing the Leviton firmware upgrade. I have four now.
This is also the first time I’ve heard of the firmware update not fixing the remote switch reporting issue. It has fixed several people’s remote reporting issues, including mine and another local friend. Additionally, I’ve never seen an official list of bugs fixed by this firmware update. Even when OEMs publish a list they only include a few items and many other code changes may have been done. I found that after this firmware update that my entire Z-Wave network is more stable. No devices have gone offline and I rarely get a device lockup, although it does still happen on rare occasion. I do still have an intermittent reporting issue with my Gen5 Aeotec Recessed Door Sensors .
It’s results like this that prove the importance of getting the latest firmware for all our devices. This will only way this will happen for everyone is for SmartThings to provide OTA firmware updates for Z-Wave devices. Often we have no idea that new firmware is available from the OEM since they rarely if ever inform us. This process is also not something the average user is going to want to tackle the way we did.
