The older devices aren’t so friendly with the new long-range inclusion. My experience has been that they start, but don’t always finish. If I’m within 4-5m of the device, though, it always works on the first try, with the exception of two really stubborn VRI06’s that insist I pretty much press the Vera up against the wall (only slightly exaggerating there).
No, those are two different processes…
- Use the UI and eventually get to the countdown when it’s in inclusion mode; put the device in its inclusion mode and cross fingers; when it find the device, name it, and then either finish or do another device.
- Press SELECT until Z-Wave light is blinking slowly, press SYNC briefly to enter inclusion mode on Plus; put device in inclusion mode (usually a brief very rapid blink when that happens), then the next device, then the next, and the next, until finally it either times out after 5 minutes or you press SYNC again.
…and in either case, wait several minutes after to allow the Vera to settle down, save everything, and maybe even reload once or twice again as it configures the device. Patience is key. Unplug too early and you can really botch things up.
IIRC, for the switches and dimmers, you are best off resetting them first, which is: air gap, then press/hold until locator light turns red, then release. Then to pair, since they are reset, you can often just tap them once or twice and everybody gets the message. Alternately, you can air gap, then press/hold until the locator light turns yellow (I find doing this before putting Vera in inclusion mode often works well–sometimes doing it after you put Vera in inclusion mode really screws it up and you end up with two devices, one dead).
For the scene controllers, again, first reset the device: press and hold buttons 1 and 3 until the lights turn solid red, then release. To include, press and hold 1 and 3 until the lights turn amber.
In both cases, the amber comes before the red, so just be aware when resetting the device (trying to get red) that it’s going to go amber first–keep holding down the buttons until you get red. When including, release as soon as you get amber (or you’re going to get red again).
FWIW, I’ve long used an unpublished plugin I wrote some time ago called SceneSlayer to make the buttons and LEDs on the scene controllers work the way I want. If you like, I’ll send you a copy (it supports Leviton, Evolve, and ZRC-90). I’m not sure if @gengen 's new scene controller plugin supports the Leviton devices, but I’d be happy to collaborate on getting support into that published work for everyone’s benefit. I think mine also supports a couple of features that may be interesting to cross-port.
