Everything operated fine until I got to the lock which would only operate if I had it within 8 ft of the closest dimmer or near the panel.
When learning in the Z-Wave lock, did you move the panel to within six feet of the lock? How long did you leave the panel near the lock after successfully learning it in? It is a good idea to leave the panel near the lock after the enrollment process so the lock can complete the secure enrollment process.
Then I did a reset which would remove all devices and reset the panel. Rebooted the panel and nothing will come up in discovery mode. Double click dimmer repeatedly and it wont go into discovery mode, click the discovery button on the kwikset with it about 2 ft away from the panel…nothing
It appears as though the devices were not removed successfully. Try this, when removing a Z-Wave Device from the mesh network navigate to Services -> Z-Wave-> Wrench Icon -> Remove Devices then click the remove button on the Z-Wave device. Do you get a notification that the device has been removed from the network?
If so, try adding the device back in (same steps above but click Add Device) Does this resolve the issue?
Again, once all devices are learned in and the panel is back at its install point, you will want to run a Z-Wave Network Rediscovery, this will ensure that the devices are communicating in the best possible manner.
