Inklusion not working as it should

I have been trying to add devices to my Homey for the last couple of days and I keep running into the same stupid problem which is driving me CRAZY!!!

Everytime I try to add a device (doesn't matter if it is aeotec, fibaro, or neo) the following keeps happening:

First Inclusion attempt: Node identified as slave -> NO ZWAVE DEVICE FOUND
Second inclusion attempt: Parameters are checked, then either -> TIMEOUT or -> NO ZWAVE DEVICE FOUND
Third inclusion attempt: Might work, or I get the error "this device is already paired"

This. Is. Driving. Me. Up. The. Wall!!


  • When the first attempt fails you will have to remove the device in Settings - Zwave (even if the device hasn't been added correctly and doesn't appear)

    Try adding your device really close to Homey, less than 1m, it might (and often will) fail otherwise.

    The devices are 2 cm away from homey when I try to include them.

    Strangely, when I do it via the device app (Fibaro, Aeotec, etc) then it fails. HOWEVER: I just found out when I select "Homey" and then click on "ZWAVE" and add the device that way everything runs smooth.

    Hmm, really some kind of bug perhaps? In homey?

    i had yesterday also problems getting a neo Coolcam plug included. 

    Same behaviour you descripted. 

    After several exclusions (zwave settings etc) and a reset it worked. 

    Never had such problems at all. And this was a first pairing since a while. (3 Month) 

    next Time i will try your way over the simple add zwave way instead of the app. Just for interest

    Kind of strange since when I first started adding devices everything went smooth. With the devices I have been wanting to add the past couple of days I have noticed this behavior. 

    Plus I just saw that I have some dead nodes which for some odd reason I can't get rid of
  • Yes one dead node i have too. But wondering where it belongs to...
