Title: Why AN158 doesn't work :(
Post by: EinSteini on December 15, 2012, 07:01:40 am
I'm new and i try to set up my Z-Wave Home Automation.

I start whit a Everyspring AN157-2 Switch --> works without problems on the first try
then a Everyspring AD142-2 Dimmer Switch --> works without problems on first try
an the Everyspring AN158-2 Swich --> is not detected

have two AN158, but both can be programmed.

Someone an idea?   >:(

One possibility is that the device was included in a different Z-Wave network already. Perhaps it had been returned by a previous customer before being sold to you.

If so, exclude it first (with Z-Wave you can exclude with any controller), then it should be possible to include it.

Otherwise it may be a faulty device.

You should still try to exclude them before including them.
It could be that the factory did NOT exclude them after their QA test.

I have found this true several times with brand new equipment as stated by @RichardTSchaefer
