I paired this with Vera Plus no problem. A z-wave device and a door/window device are created (similar to other devices on my system). I am able to turn on and off the z-wave device (or Vera tells me I can). But the sensor never shows open or closed and will not work in a scene.
The LED on the front will blink quickly once when changing the orientation of the device (to tilted or not tilted). The Ecolink manual states this means the device is connected to the z-wave network.
I saw an older thread discussing some advanced settings, and my device had all of those settings.
I paired this device at the install location. Noticed the problem. Brought it inside to within a few feet of the Vera Plus, and no change in the issue, so this is not a range problem.
