It seems whenever you send a command from the controller to a double switch 2 it breaks associations on the entire network. Is this a known issue too?

edit: no, it seems unreliable even when not sending commands from teh controller

Bobone,

I can tell you that we are already a few sprints into the development cycle, but I can't be more specific than that. Because of the fact that there is A LOT happening and things are things are yet to be settled, I cannot personally give you more than what Melih gave you, although I'd love to do that.

Got back an old post... @Sorin I was wondering If you were able to reproduce the issue and to analyze it, and eventually if you find the problem.
Not asking if or when... you may need to rewrite tons of code to fix it.

Anyway A forecast would be super!

They know how to fix it, but they won't do it, I guess for a principle. This device behaves differently and they don't want to introduce a special case just for us.
it's a political thing, and I guess we will not have a fix unless we switch to a different hub.

The problem is documented. It has to do with the implementation of new security protocols.
If Vera would just allow to join devices in a non-secure way (which is pretty secure anyway BTW), it would not be a problem.

It is an outrage that this hotfix has not been provided during the 2 years that the problem has been known.

I have moved the FGS-223s to HomeSeer. Works perfectly.

Very interesting post, but also quite confusing message:
- I now have FW 1.7.4001 on VeraPlus?
- No release date?
- No mention of flash mode issue (most probably same root problem). Have you tested?

What flash mode issues are you referring to?

1) Confusing: what is 7.29 vs FW 1.7.4001 on VeraPlus?

2) "Flash Mode" is a FGS-223 function that enables it to flash every x seconds for y seconds independently of the controller and thus reducing traffic/problems. Especially important in alarm situations.
This works perfectly with other controllers such as HomeSeer and Fibaro and has been diagnosed by Fibaro and Vera teams as a Vera controller problem.
Most likely linked to the security protocols that have caused the lags. The flashing starts but is shut down by (excessive) Vera commands.
It would make sense to test this NOW before the release.

Many thanks,

Bob
