Send notification when communication problem



Hi Guys,


Question, sometimes (one a month or so) it happens that the HC2 loses connectivity to the relay module controlling the heating system.

This is not a good thing cause the heating system will stop when it doens't receive a command from the HC2 every 30 minutes (failsafe)

So, next morning, house is cold and it takes al lot of time to heat the house again.......


You can imagine this is not very comfortable and consumes a lot of electricity and gas.


So, what I am looking for, is it possible to let the HC2 check communications with it's modules (or most important, just this module) every 2 hours or so and, if communication fails, send me a push message ? (of even retry communications ???)

That would help me a lot.....

Go to HC2 > Configuration > Z-Wave Network > Mesh network reconfiguration.
Select that module and hit [Reconfigure]. No fear, this is not critical.
It reconfigures the mesh network connection, not the module itself.
This may take a while and there is no feedback. Try once more the next day.


If this didn't help, consider 'Entire Network' [Reconfigure].
If still issues, the module is probably too far away from the HC2. Use a device with build-in range tester to check.
If indeed too far away, mount a mains powered Z-Wave device half way between module and HC2 (works as repeater).
