I installed a GE Smart Switch (Model 12727) in the garage tonight. The light switch works on its own, but I’m having a heck of a time pairing it to the Smart Things v2 hub.
I have a couple other things including a motions sensor that are further away from the hub than this switch, so I don’t think distance is a problem.
I put the hub into paring mode and the app just spins and spins – it never finds the switch. According to the instructions, all you have to do is turn the switch on and it should be available for pairing. Is there anything else I’m supposed to do? I’ve tried turning it on and then off, turning it on and holding the switch in the up position, turning it on and then pushing the switch up again and releasing it… I’ve tried a bunch of combos… what’s going on?
Thanks for looking.
