I’m hoping to find some help here before I wipe my Z-Wave network and start from scratch as I have a lot of devices.
My current setup:
- HASS 0.45 running on Ubuntu server 16.04.2 (HASS version outdated due to another issue with pip…)
- Aeotec Z-Stick Gen 5
Zwave devices acting oddly:
- 2x Monoprice Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor
- 2x Monoprice Z-Wave Plus Recessed Door/Window Sensor
- Many GE Z-Wave Dimmer 12724 (some 3-ways with add-ons)
- A few GE Z-Wave Switches 1222 (some 3-ways with add-ons)
So the other day I was doing my occasional maintenance on my HASS setup which involves updating the Ubuntu system libs, updating HASS, and rebooting, and after doing so I began noticing some very suspicious behavior out of my Z-Wave network.
[As an aside, the HASS update command (
pip3 install --upgrade homeassistant) executes fine but the HASS instance does not get upgraded after multiple reboots].
Ever since then ALL of my Z-wave dimmers/switches have been getting triggered by any of my four Z-Wave sensor’s state changes. I open my closet door, every light in the house comes on. Close the closet door, they all go off. (My neighbors must think we are nuts cause the outdoor lights come on too :P). There is a significant delay between the lights being triggered and the door opening, which was not present prior to this issue.
What I have tried:
- Rebooting server
- Rebooting HASS
- Updating HASS (does not stick as mentioned before)
- Unplugging Z-Stick (issue persists with stick unplugged).
- Rebooting controller via OZWCP (I can’t make sense of the logs, but can post them if needed).
I thought sibling node control was impossible? Can Z-wave nodes directly alter states of other nodes without a controller? The Aeotec Z-stick does have a built in battery, but I was under the impression that it would not function as a primary controller while unplugged, only as a secondary for node inclusions. All of my automations are via HASS, and since it is unplugged, the device does not exist in
/dev/ttyACM0 any longer, so HASS shouldn’t be able to execute the actions. Irrelevant anyways as the issue also persists with both the controller unplugged and the HASS instance (along with the server itself) turned off.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m hesitant to completely wipe my Z-Wave network but if I can’t find a solution, I think I might have to…
