I hope you can help me, a somewhat strange topic name maybe, but I have two questions that could be related.
A while ago I upgraded my Vera Lite from U15 to U17 with the help of Vera support, That went quite well, and I was happy with the result. I could now use my RFXtrx XL for my Somfy screens, and finally got my AEOtec ZW100C working.
Never touch a working system, but I wanted one last improvement, the AEOtec has a lux sensor, but is not for outdoor.
So I decided to upgrade my 15 year old Steinel outdoor Sensor, to a new one, with Zwave. The IS 140-2.
Unfortunately, the steinel is not present as a device in the Vera Lite wizard, so I had to choose a Generic Zwave device.
A bit difficult to pair the Steinel, you have to turn the small wheel on the steinel, which is of course somewhere high mounted on the wall, but eventualy I got a message on my Vera that a new device was detected.
Thats where things went wrong, i think. It seems that my Aeotec and the Steinel got mixed up? don’t know really what happened, but my AEOtec had STeinel as name. and I got a message that the Luup Engine takes longer to load.
My Vera was quite unstable, and I had to do a restore.
I removed the AEOtec, and paired the Steinel again, I now got 1 device, and 2 child devices, I can even control the sensor bij clicking On or OFF, but can not find the Light intensity (Lux) on a device.
The system remains very unstable, and I want to clean things up, but not realy sure what is the best way to do.
Has anyone got the Steinel Lux sensor working on vera?
Is there a way to completely whipe the vera (everything also Zwave) and only restore a few devices? I don’t want to restore the problems and old files etc,
