Zwave Aeon Smart Energy Meter Gen1

I have an energy monitor first generation that I just installed in two of my fuse panels. I initially installed them with just batteries and was having communication issues. I could pair but it would not send anything else. So I had a power plug put in so I could get off of batteries. I removed my devices and added them back in. I added another repeater to insure coverage. They paired with no issues. Now even though I have good coverage I am still not getting anything from the devices. I am wondering if there is an issue with working with repeaters and this device. Anyone else having issues like this. I mean I don’t get any response from the devices.
