funny story to pass along for future reference...
« on: July 19, 2012, 01:44:24 pm »

After last guests left the cabin I popped onto vera to check things and saw the deck light was on.  No problem, I'll turn it off.  Get the  send data failed message or whatever... tried to poll it... failed... checked advanced tab and all routes to it have an x on them. Great...  Its 20 feet from the box never had a problem. Tried and tried and got nothing.  Said to myself, this is a Leviton, WTF?   Was to the point where I figured it would have to be swapped out. (Either pay someone, or drive 3 hours). I hit the cleaners up and asked them to call me when they got there to clean.  Asked them to try the switch to see if it would at least work.  She said 'what is that tab thats pulled out?'. Seems a guest (or kid more than likely) for whatever reason found that air gap switch on the edge and pulled it out.  Amazing how well it works when things are properly 'enabled'.  Just something to remember if far away and one of those switches drops offline for no reason.
