VeraPlus Hub - New Error

I use a Vera Plus HUB. Recently I have been encountering errors using Home Assistant. I have added the Vera Hub via the integration. The error is reported as:
“requests.exceptions.ReadTimeout: HTTPConnectionPool(host=‘192.168.N.NNN’, port=3480): Read timed out. (read timeout=30)”

It is happening with Zwave lights and blinds. I previously did not have this issue and can’t understand why this is occurring. I will post the full log for this error below.

Any insight is very much appreciated.

Well it can’t find that, which is certainly not a zwave thing.

I took out the actual numbers of the post just for a touch of privacy. It is an actual IP address in the actual log (and it is the correct IP for the Vera Hub). I know that as an internal IP it shouldn’t be a problem, but I have seen enough posts that mask them to think perhaps that is prudent.

I don’t care what the number is, silly. That device is not responding. Fix that. Zwave devices don’t have IP addresses.

Well you are soooo helpful. You call out the IP address and then call me silly. What kind of tool are you?

Here is the deal - I have been getting timeouts of the sort shown in the log file. The Vera Hub can easily control the zwave devices. The timeouts occur when using HA - and especially automations. Often, I can control the ZWave device with HA manually, but the automation will still report a timeout.
