My iq2+ is dropping z-wave on all devices every few days and it need to be rebooted to start working again. This just stared from nowhere and it has been going on for about two weeks. I know there are problems with patch 681 for z-wave if it was apply after 2.5.2. I also know that there is no fix until 2.5.3. will come out as that will rewrite binaries that were damaged by 681.
Don’t worry if you install 681 now most likely you already have revise version and if you install old 681 and then 2.5.2 then you on as well. only installing 2.5.2 and then old 681 cause problems.
Posting this to see if anyone else is getting this kind of reaction from this software error.
Also will like to know if there is a way of installing 2.5.2 again from like a SD card to overwrite binarrys. I know it won’t work using patch version once installed but from SD card ? anyone ever try?
getting tired of restarting my panel every few days just to have everything working.
No, it is not a known fix, but specific changes were made to the Z-wave software to permit use of the HEM and resolve stability issues, and the update may have affected that. What you are describing sounds very similar to the originally reported issues with HEMs impacting the network.
just curious, about the 2.5.3 update, since we know it will involve the update with the Z-wave radio (among others), do we need to clear and add ALL z-wave devices (like we had to do when updating to the SDK 6.81), or will it just be simply like a regular update?
I believe I must be having the same issue, I have some switches that randomly stopped working (including a Qolsys bulb). It originally was constrained to a single bulb and the problem coincided with a power outage where the power came on/off several times…so I suspected that perhaps the one Z-wave bulb was damaged and forked over the ridiculous $$ that Z-wave bulbs go for, only to find the same exact problem. I can add the device to the network, it just never works and fails on any network discovery.
So glad to have wasted $$ on this and to have been given no warning as to this bug being in the system. This problem has really tampered how much I would recommend Qolsys to anyone, as this is a horrendous bug and I found nothing about it prior to this thread. Qolsys needs to stop hiding information behind a “dealer” network, it is 2020.
