Danfoss not communicating with VERA
The Danfoss Z-Wave TRV has stopped communicating with VERA. The TRV's alarm-bell and antenna icons are blinking and it will not take commands from VERA.
This is a recent issue and is known as 'Panic Mode'.
By default VERA uses Z-Wave firmware v3.20 , however this version does not include Z-Wave SIS capability, which the Danfoss requires for correct operation.
Change VERA's Z-Wave firmware version to the previous v2.78 version (which does support SIS).
- Open VERA MIOS UI
- Make sure you have a back-up of your VERA system
- Go to SETUP > Z-Wave Settings
- Un-check the 'Use Z-Wave version 3.20...' box
- Click the red 'SAVE' button (top-right of the VERA window)
Changing this setting will not adversely affect your system, but will ensure the Danfoss and VERA are able to communicate correctly and reliably
Note : this is valid for older versions of the Danfoss TRV but not for the Danfoss LC-13.
