How to remove a "unknown node"

z-wave

#1

Hi,
as the title already explains. I have a unknown node in my network and I would like to remove it from the network. Is there a way to do this?

Resetting the chip and rebooting homey ( and even running an update) doesn’t fix it.

Sure, goto https://developer.athom.com/tools/zwave
goto the end of the line of the Unknown Node, click on the 3 dots, the rest you can imagine:

some times you have to refresh this page to see the results.

there is no remove button… thats why I ask.


#4

indeed some nodes have a remove button and some do not :frowning: here the same problem with an unknown node without remove button

I had a Fibaro switch that was broken but couldn’t be removed for months as it clearly won’t respond to anything (it’s no longer there) . The X in the top right corner in Homey to remove the device should have timed out and remove unknown/unresponsive devices from Z-Wave automatically but it didn’t. Remove button in tools section is not visible and I didn’t want to reset the entire Z-Wave network as I’d lose all my devices.
The latest revision Homey SW has brought the remove solution back to life.
Is this similar to what you’re trying to achieve?

And via the page: Settings - Z-Wave - Remove a device ?

For that to work you need the device. But as I already said its a device that I don’t know what it is. So I can’t remove it
