I’ve got a Schlage Connect Zwave lock that I want to install on the access door to my detached garage. It’s at least two, maybe three zwave mesh hops from my hub. I know I have good mesh coverage out there, as I already have a motion sensor, a couple of contact sensors and a light switch that all work great. I’m wondering what the best practices here are.
I know I need to pair it close to the hub for the security handshake, but once I install it in the door I’ll need to “reset” the lock so it can search for the direction and travel of the deadbolt. I believe this will clear the pairing from the lock.
Is the only way to do this to run an ethernet cable out to my garage and move the hub to the installed lock?
I’m also curious if anyone else has suggestions for installing zwave locks.
