Neo Coolcam Plug Z-Wave COMMAND_CLASS_SECURITY

Hi, I have two brand new Neo Coolcam Z-Wave Plugs. I experience periodic “hangs” - they stop responding neither to command nor to physical button press. The only thing I can do is to disconnect them from electricity, and plug them in again.

I thought it’s some kind of hardware problem, however when I started looking at z-wave log (from http://developer.athom.com/tools/zwave), I noticed a lot (every couple of seconds) of COMMAND_CLASS_SECURITY commands - I’m not experienced with z-wave, I’m not sure wether it’s correct or not.

Log sample:

Can you tell if this behavior if correct? Can the plug be “flooded” with those commands?

The newer plugs have a known issue, partly because of the secure status. Read Neo coolcam powerplug and this Add Z-Wave device non-secure?.
There are a couple of more topics about it, you can use the search for that.

Just to close the topic: recent update to Neo Coolcam app made the plug work correctly. They wrote something about disabling secure connection in changelog, probably they addressed exactly mine issue.
