Solved: Light bulbs dropping off Engen network
« on: January 12, 2018, 12:53:43 pm »

I had a problem with a Gocontrol and Linearlinc lightbulbs dropping from my network after a power outage and restore. I think I solved it, posting here in case users are experiencing the same problems.

It's a simple fix:

1. Unplug Z-Stick from Engen server
2. Wait 15+ minutes
3. Replug Z-Stick

Key idea here is waiting 15+ minutes. This allows time for all active devices in the Z-wave network to go into "Child" mode, and then the Z-Stick will rebuild the mesh network tables automatically. I can't confirm that this is happening, of course, but network seems to be working much better. I also get better measurable response times and no errors on Engen's "Options =>Health" page, so there is an objective improvement there.

A more technical explanation can be found here:

If/when Engen dev continues, perhaps a "Network Heal" function could go on the list. Thanks!
