I have bought my first secure Z-Wave device, a Danalock V3. I included it and was very happy with how smooth the inclusion went until I realized it wasn’t securely included and thus don’t work at all. I’ve skimmed through some threads on the topic but hasn’t really found out what to do. Do I need to exclude it and include again? I’ve understood that proximity is of the essence, so I guess I need to dismount it from the door (which is about 2 meters from my OH server) and hold it much closer while including. But is it just a matter of reincluding time after time until it’s securely included?
For the record, here’s what I find in the log concerning this:
You need to include it through the binding within 15 seconds. Don’t use any buttons on zwave sticks if any.
After each failed attempt you need to factory reset the device.
Distance should not be a problem.
…and then do all of this again for every time it’s included non-securely?
From where are the 15 seconds started? I guess it’s from when I click “connect” in the app and the inclusion is started from the lock’s point of view? If it’s from when it’s factory reset I don’t see how it would be possible…
The steps for putting the device in z-wave inclusion mode is to push a button in an app, and in order to do that the lock has to be BT paired with the phone first.
Is the order important? Now when I paired I did put the lock into inclusion mode first and THEN I put OH into inclusion mode (clicked the “Scan for Things” button in PaperUI). And seconds after that it was found and included, but maybe doing it in that order could ruin things?
Ok, I’ve done some struggling with this. I fail on the first step, the one excluding the device. No matter what I do I can’t seem to get my Z-stick to understand that I want to exclude it. I actually don’t think the lock sees itself as included, it’s more of a ghost node on the controller. Any idea how to get rid of it? I’ve tried every exclusion and removal button I’ve found in both paperui and habmin, no matter what I do it just turns up again in the inbox
