I've been reading a lot about zwave, the networks and communication, nodes etc and a lot of tips and tricks, repair guides etc etc on this forum. Great stuff. But i still have some questions regarding the including/excluding proces with 'difficult' devices (devices that take a lot of attemps to include). I have a few of those difficult devices. I see some different type of advice on the forum about how to solve this but they al sound a bit strange to me regarding the zwave concept:
My HC3 is in the living room.
My device is on the first floor. including does not work (a lot! of attemps). A solution is suggested to do one of these :
1) bring the HC closer to the device or
2) bring the device closer to the HC
ad 1 to me it sounds not like a good idea because i read the zwave is a mesh network which is build up based on the location of the HC. So moving the HC closer doesn't sounds logical to me as is my affect the whole network?
ad2: bring the device closer, incluse it and than bring it back to the first floor doen't sound logical to me either, because the HC assumes the devise is close at inclusion, but later on it is at another position in the house. Unless this could be fixed by forcing a soft reconfigere of the device?
What is the best solution for this problem? or are they both not smart?
