First off, never used a forum before, so I apologize for anything I didn’t do right…
Second, I love the Inovelli products I have gotten so far and how customizable they are. It hurts my head just trying to use a few of their options. Huge respect for what this tiny team has done so far.
I have some LZW60 sensors and LZW31-SN dimmer switches on a SmartThings Gen 3 Hub. I am following the instructions on how to use the Z-Wave Association Tool to associate the sensor to a switch and I cannot get it to work.
After all the reading, I want to think it is a security mismatch:
But I do not know how to fix it. I have read that it was a known issue back in Aug 2020, but I could not find a solution. How do I get these sensors to turn on lights via association? All 5 sensors and 10 dimmers can’t be bad…
In the tool: Source Motion Sensor / Destination Switch / Group 2
I have included all 5 sensors, even a few right next to the hub, and have never gotten anything other than ZWAVE_S2_UNAUTHENTICATED
I’ve powered the sensor with included 100% battery and w/ USB cable using 1a and 2.1a
Welcome! I agree with stu that this is definitely security related.
Did you scan the QR code on the 60? Perhaps you can upgrade to S2_authenticated on both! If I remember correctly, if you go through the normal pairing on the switch but don’t scan the QR code, you will get S2_unauthenticated.
I agree with the above regarding the security levels not matching. The problem w/ST is that you may have difficulty in getting them to pair at the same level.
But a more basic question is what are you trying to accomplish? I’m guessing it’s probably turning on the switch via motion. Is there some reason you’re not using an automation or 3rd party engine like webCore or Rule Engine. Too slow, maybe?
Unfortunately with SmartThings you are stuck with whatever security level it pairs at. Inovelli did tweak the firmware on the Illumin bulb to allow it to pair unsecure, but afaik, there aren’t current plans to extend that functionality to other devices.
I don’t know if it’s fair to compare response times of cloud reliant devices or not, tbh.
