@FlyBoyBob,

That goes for a 3-in-1 sitting within about 6ft of the Vera as well.[...]
Mmm, odd. Are you saying the HSM100 that's close to Vera isn't working properly either. If so, I'd focus on that and try to get that sensor going first. Exclude, then include. Let it configure. Then see if it starts reporting temperature and light level every 30 minutes. Check the 'LastWakeup' field.

This hopefully gets around anything related to routing as the sensor is in direct reach of Vera. If a (nightly) heal then breaks this sensor, it would give MCV something to look at.

@flyboybob

Would this thread help maybe?
Let us know as i think there might be some usefull tips in there!

--edit--
correct link added

Well what i was suggesting was the full power inclusion with also Vera in its original position and see how that works. Also you would be able to see the device appear and not have to reinstall Vera with probably a powercycle needed.
That's the way I did it many many times before. Bringing the battery-dongled Vera to the device "in situ" was something new that I tried. In all situations when the 3-in-1 started reporting values they were wrong, and after a Heal the device(s) were no longer in contact with the Vera no matter what I try.

That goes for a 3-in-1 sitting within about 6ft of the Vera as well. Looking at that one right now - it is showing a "0" light level in a bright room and a temperature of "75" which has not changed since the last time I Excluded / Included it. In fact here's an ADD report on the near one:
Quote from: ADD Report 2011-06-27 14:52:46
Living Room 3-in-1       : Battery level   92, last battery report    19 hour(s) ago

Here's one I pulled the battery on to re-configure last week, shortly after the upgrade:

@oTi -

I did that last evening with the nearest HSM100 = Exclude, Include, Configure. Today that one sensor is reporting seemingly valid data, and its LastWakeup field shows well within the 1/2 hour set wakeup period.

Other nearby battery operated devices are showing invalid or stale data, the ADD program shows battery updates in the dozens or hundreds of hours ago, yet the LastWakup field shows valid recent wakeup times within their wakeup period, so the devices are apparently active and talking to Vera.

As I said earlier the Variables and Data seeem to have been corrupted on all devices after the firmware update. I will try to Exclude / Include more devices tonight, that seems to read the proper schemas and default values and configures them into the device.

There were 2 strange Heal reports last evening after I had gone to bed - I have given access to my box to MCV so I assume they are experimenting. The remote 3-in-1 (which was Excluded / Included by myself several times recently) still has no Neighbors and no mesh route to get to it, so is still not working at all. I had also put a ManualRoute Variable and value for a path through hard-wired devices to it = no difference.

Good!

Right. At least for some devices, battery reporting is autonomous, on its own timer, and has its own association group. So if not configured properly, I guess you could have no battery reports, but other stuff working fine.

That would be my suggestion as well. Try to re-include the 'funny' devices. And keep them close to Vera for now, if able, just to rule out routing issues.

Good up until this morning when for no apparent reason the LastWakeup is now 3 hours ago, and increasing. Fresh batteries btw. All HSM100's last for a while and then drop off, regardless of recent exclude / include or distance from Vera. Is there a "self-destruct" variable I've missed??  ::)

Of the HSM100's that were configured pre-upgrade vs recently exclude/include devices (all of those devices are identical btw) they all seem to break in an identical way, except for the remote one which is always broken. I have not made any configuration changes and they are all at factory reset values. However the Variable lists vary hugely on two recently re-included devices(?) In fairness - I believe MCV is working on my machine remotely even though they have not said - I had opend my machine to Support last week and was told it would be "escalated". So these unexplainable inconsistencies might be them, but my whole system remains broken.

As I said above all pre-upgrade HSM100's and all re-configured ones are failing. The one remote one used to work pre-upgrade, now not at all. BTW two battery-operated Temp / Humidity sensors also fail in the same way, while my Schlage lock (also battery) seems ok (thank goodness!)

@flyboybob

Maybe check with MCV support about getting you to the 1.1.1298 beta.

Check point 7 of the releasenotes (based on your postings here)

I've not been using my Vera for quite some time.  Our 'old' house was hit with Mine Subsidence almost 2 years ago, so I stopped working on ZWave.

Now that we are in our 'new' house, I'm starting up my network again.

I'm using Vera 1.

Has the firmware for 3.2 been updated?

Thanks,
Brian

There has been no firmware release for vera 1 based on 3.20. This requires Aeon to release an updated firmware for their dongle.

So what needs to get that done?  I bought my Vera 1 from Micasaverde, who designed the 'box' using Aeon's dongle.  So one would think they would be aggressively pursuing this.

Now if I need to send Aeon a couple of love notes,which I can do, but who would I send it to?

Just my thoughts.

Thanks,
Brian

Try this form?

Can't really expect MCV to supply an update they don't have.

Here are some contact names at Aeon

winston -  wcheng@aeon-labs.com, Mark Mo - mmo@aeon-labs.com, William Li - wli@aeon-labs.com

They usually respond.
