"Timed out while waiting for a response from the node" - remedies?

EDIT: Is this such a freak occurrence that I should just give up? No responses here, and I’m googling my fingers off finding nothing… not complaining, I’m new to HA and would just really like to know if this is in the realm of “possibly fixable”, or if I need to make other IoT decisions.

OK, so… in the ongoing saga of devices which register, but contain no entities, I seem to have found the problem, see: the header of this topic :grin:

The only change I can see after acquiring a USB extension cable & improving connectivity is that, in stead of a single “Timed out while waiting for a response” message, there’s several (oh, and also, under “Z-Wave Info”, the device is listed as “Ready: Yes” instead of “No”).

Searching the forums, the most similar, reasonably recent situation I’ve found is this one, in which the poster mentions the network key. This is well above my skill level, but is it something that might be relevant to my issue?

Inclusion debug log below, the result is the same when re-interviewing. Healing also doesn’t help, and I’ve reloaded Z-Wave, restarted HASS, and even rebooted the Pi, also to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any help!! :pray:

(If bumping my issue in this way is frowned upon, just let me know; I am simply trying to narrow my questions & make them as accurate as I can :slight_smile:)

I see this when the node is either far away from the controller, or goes to sleep.
Some battery devices allow you to put them in a mode that keeps them awake. Some you might have to keep pressing buttons to keep awake.

But if you have issues, try including the device close to the controller and be sure the whole interview process is complete and then put it into the location its going. If it works OK close by, and you can ping it from the device info page, then have problems after, its not the device, its the range and you dont have enough powered devices between the controller and node.

Also if you add lots of devices in a short time (like you would when building a network or moving from one controller to another) - be patient. It takes a while for the network to calculate routes and settle down if you add more than one node a day. Devices will keep trying to re-interview until the config is completed normally (aside from quirks with the 700 series stuff thats ongoing). I’ve had some devices that i’d tried all sorts to get to fully interview/add, but in the background the network was just too busy and got timeouts.
Left it, and the next day they had all the attributes. Same goes for OTA firmware updates that ‘failed’

Many devices are capable of being included with no security, and the network keys are now automatically generated if you don’t set them anyway, so i’d guess that secure inclusion or not isnt the problem.

Sometimes patience is key. I have over 60 z wave nodes on my network. I (very often) get timed out messages when adding/including, and the live logs don’t show that the device is being interviewed. But oddly the device has acted like it was included… then a few minutes later the device appears and is configured.
Probably a glitch I should report actually.

Thank you for a comprehensive response!

Unfortunately, I’m past all of your otherwise brilliant advice. The Aeotec stick is literally a foot away from the device, and well clear of anything that might interfere. I’ve tried keeping the devices awake, I’ve tried adding one and waiting for days (I have one added now that I haven’t touched since my previous post almost a week ago), and I’ve tried with lower or no security.

It seems like I’m just out of luck with these devices; my other Z-Wave items, including almost identical ones, work fine.

Off to the store, I guess :stuck_out_tongue:

As the interview completes just fine, I don’t think these events should be worrying. I have them as well and everything just works fine. Or is something actually not working for you? If so, could you please share info on your setup (hardware used, including host setup, like usb connected devices etc)

The devices don’t work at all - there are no entities for me to interact with.

My setup is a Pi400 (the keyboard one) with an Aeotec Gen5 Z-Stick (on a USB extension cord to avoid interference). The devices in question are Danfoss LC-13 thermostats. I have two Danfoss LCZ251 thermostats as well, which are basically identical, and they work fine. Also on Z-Wave I have a NorthQ E-Reader which also works fine.
