I am having some trouble trying to pair a Z-Wave motion light that I have. I think it is too far from the panel. I have an Aeotec Z-Wave range extender on order and am hoping that solves the problem.
However, while searching these forums I came across some posts where people were having problems pairing their locks, which I also have to do in the near future, and the suggestion was to remove the panel from the wall, take it on battery power within a few feet of the device you are trying to pair, and once it is paired return the panel to the wall. So for the learning experience I thought I would give that a shot.
When I remove my panel from the wall and try to pair a new device, I get the message “Please plug in the power supply to access Z-Wave Devices”. Is the technique described above no longer possible to do on battery power? I ran my power wires through the wall and don’t have a spare transformer to try.
