please factory reset the dongle, something looks very weird here..
I did that a few time, before and after reading this reply, no luck.
From looking at the logs do you think it's possible that the z-stick is broken? It looks like LMCE sees the stick and is setting it up properly but it's not seeing the lighting controller part of the stick. Every time I plug it in Sara tells me to pair my zwave devices with the master controller first. So I'll unplug the stick walk over to a light switch, pair it, plug the stick back into the core, LMCE chews on it for a second or two, then I get told to include my devices to the master controller first.
Also, the last time I tried to reset the stick I used that program I uploaded to this thread. I reset the stick, there were no nodes on the list of included nodes, for the heck of it I click on the "All on" button in the application and the weirdest thing happened, every single light in my house turned on. It's my understanding that a zwave node wont accept or repeat commands from a device it's not on the same network with. If I reset the z-wave stick wouldn't that break the association? Am I understanding this correctly? I don't recall this being normal operation in the past. Any thoughts on this?
