I’ve an update from my last post. Some good news & some bad…
The good news is that the issue appears to have been identified & can be fixed. I’ve been in contact with someone from R&D in Qubino & last week we managed to capture the problem on my module. The issue appears to be with the encrypted communication on the module & it can be fixed with a over the air (OTA) firmware flash. I’ve been running new firmware on my module for the last 4 days or so & so far it’s working fine.
This leads me onto the bad news, to flash the module it required a USB Z wave controller to upload the new firmware file from a computer/ laptop, obviously not available to most users out there. The individual in Qubino will be passing the findings on to Athom & reports that they (Athom) are working on including an OTA feature in Homey, but no timescale or confirmation of this.
Sorry it’s not better news.
