I’m replacing an old, failed zwave outlet.
I got a new receptacle, an Aspire 9505. It included into Vera without any issues and was responsive to commands. I did this within 10 feet of the controller.
I disconnected it, moved it to it’s final location and powered it on. When I press the Zwave button, the unit responds correctly. The other side of the receptacle is powered. But I could not get it to respond to commands from the UI. It has various error messages - "
ERROR: Unable to get any information on node…
Cannot contact device, error code: 1…
There are at least 4 powered zwave devices within 10 feet of this device location. I’ve “updated neighbors” on those devices and it had no impact on the problem device.
I’d hate to have to physically remove the device, delete it from the system and reinstall, only to find the same error occurs when putting the unit back in it’s intended location. (It’s in a difficult place to get to.)
Any suggestions? I’ve got another one ready to go to another difficult location, but I’m hesitant to start that project.
