hardware devices not linking

Post by splodge » Wednesday 12 September 2018 13:33

My first post :)

I am a noob and this is my first Zwave network.

I have a Raspberry Pi3 running Domoticz v4.9700 and using an Aeon S2 Zstick controller. I updated to latest version of Domoticz few weeks ago. I have just been through the process of "include"ing my Popp TRV radiator valves of which I have 12 and the Popp TRV valves all indicated a successful "include" at the time. They are brand new devices which were not used in other networks previously.

9 of them I can connect to on domoticz, they appear on the node list and automatically get added to the device list. 3 of them (which are the ones physically furthest away) I cannot connect to despite putting them in active mode several times and clicking sending "Request current stored values from devices" many times. I have even tried "Heal Network", not sure what that does but it had no effect.

I suspect that the devices are only talking to the controller and not talking to each other and the furthest ones cannot make contact. I have attached here my Nodes List showing the items "0x000" which have not connected and the "Groups and Networks" which does not show any interconnections. How do I get the devices to talk to each other or am I doing something else wrong ?? Thanks for any help

I think I've found my issue.

TRVs don't have association groups because they can't control something else.

This is why all of them are only trying to talk to the controller and 3 can't reach it :( .

I need to get a relay (or move my controller somewhere more house central-ish)
