a few weeks ago I switched from the Aeotec Z-Stick S2 to the gen5 and rebuilt the complete Zwave network.
Since then I have the problem that some nodes are marked as offline from time to time and the network-view also looks quite strange.
Many nodes have not entered a single neighbor either. The offline nodes all run on battery and are rarely used because they are door contact sensors. Since this is all part of an alarm system, it would be important that the sensors either work or the status is reliable. However, if I manually trigger a heal, the offline nodes are directly available again and online.
Since the network information is not downloaded from the devices, it could look like this.
Note that this doesn’t mean that the routine will not work. Modern ZWave networks use other systems to formulate the route through the network - namely explorer frames, and this is supported by the binding. With explorer frames, the controller sends out messages onto the network to automatically discover a route to the destination.
The binding has no input to the routing - this is all done by the controller.
