I got my Hubitat C7 hub back in February. Since then I have installed 18 Red Series dimmers (LZW31-SN) )( “RD”), Five Black Series on/off switches (LZW30) and 5 Red Series Fan/Lights (LZW36).
While I have had instances of button pushes not working for a brief period of time they all have been working for the most part. However, something strange started happening the other day after I installed Hubitat’s hub software version 22.214.171.124 and a button 7 push on my Red dimmers.
I have an Alexa Good Night routine that turns off my TV, turns off some other lights and then turns my Outer Hall light to 35%. It’s been working for about the 1 week - 10 days since I created that routine. Yesterday, suddenly, everything worked except the Outer Hall light didn’t turn on. Likewise, I have an Alexa Good Morning routine that also turns on this light to 35%, turns on the lights the good night routine turns off, and turns on the tv. I also did that one earlier yesterday morning and it worked fine.
I also have a Hubitat rule to turn it on to 35% with a button 7 push which was working fine. In fact, I used it yesterday morning. When the Good Night routine didn’t turn on this light I tried physically pushing button 7. That didn’t work either. After turning the light on and off with a physical button 1 push/held several times it suddenly started working again.
Then when I went to bed last night I was glad to see that the good night routine worked and that light came on to 35% as it was supposed to. However, I have 2 Red dimmers in my bathroom that are supposed to do the same thing with a button 7 push. Neither one worked, but the button 1 push/held (i.e. pushing the paddle up or down one time) worked fine. I then tried pushing button 7 on two RDs that can turn a light on in my closet. I got the same results: i.e. button 7 didn’t work but turning them on/off from the paddle worked fine. I then tried a switch in another hallway, the switch for my kitchen and the switch for my dinning room. All of them reacted the exact same way. So that was 7 switches all turning on and off from the main paddle but not from button 7. If it had been one, or maybe even two of them, I could have thought it was the physical switch but 7 seems unlikely in the extreme. Plus, after a few minutes they all started working again with button 7. And, as a last factor, that good night routine is supposed to turn the Outer Hall light off after 2 minutes, but it didn’t. I had to physically push the paddle down to turn it off.
The only thing that has changed is that I installed Hubitat’s hub update to version 126.96.36.199 just the other day. So it seems something isn’t communicating properly between the 2 with this release and a button 7 push on the Red dimmers.
Just FYI, I also posted this on the Hubitat site as I think it is their issue mostly, but also wanted to give anyone here a head’s up in case they have similar issues.
