[quote=“Dansker, post:4, topic:187565”]I got two Smart Switch 6, Gen 5, a week ago. Same log messages as you receive. Using VeraEdge, latest firmware. Also have some Smart Energy Switch devices, Schlage doorlock; they get 5 stars in VeraEdge’s reports. The SS6 gets 1 or 2 stars, sometimes none. All devices within 25 feet in two rooms with ordinary framing/drywall.
Search www for (“Gen5 (Z-Wave Plus) Range Issues”) for seemingly related situation.
Aeotec have not responded yet to support request made via e-mail.
FWI: it got these because of the latest chipset mostly for use as repeaters. Did try to add them both secured and unsecured-works, but same problem.[/quote]
I recently picked up a Smart Switch 6, Gen 5. The problem I am having is that the device appears to be added correctly, but it does not respond to commands from the UI to switch the load On/Off. Power monitoring is reported correctly in the UI, but its not terribly useful for controlling a load at this point. I’ve noticed a reviewer on Amazon appears to be having the same problem.
I’m running latest firmware, and have tried adding the device first as a Aeotec Smart Switch and then tried adding as a generic Z Wave device, but still get the same result. I’m wondering if Vera fully supports these devices yet? If anyone has had any luck with getting the devices to respond to load control commands, I’d like to hear how you did it.
