Having issues including the ZEN06 to Home Assistant? Try exclusion, which acts as a soft reset for the device.

You can exclude a device from Home Assistant even if it has never successfully been included. Here's how to do it: 


  1. In Home Assistant: open Settings Devices and Services Z-Wave JS > Configure
  2. Click on Remove Device
  3. Click on Start Exclusion
  4. The device will now be removed, but that won’t show until you restart Home Assistant
  5. Run a Heal Network so all the other nodes learn about its removal

After exclusion is confirmed, re-include the ZEN06 back to Home Assistant again. 


If that didn't work, here are some troubleshoots we find helpful: 

  • Try the exclusion process again! It's possible the exclusion commands from the first run weren't registered correctly. 
  • Try the exclusion process again, pressing the Z-Wave button 4-5 times as quickly as possible. This can help make sure the commands go through.
  • If your Smart Plug is far away from the hub, then it may be having difficulty communicating. Try bringing device closer to the hub to see if it connects in a closer location. If it connects without issue in the new spot, then the first location may be out of range or there may be too many interferences in that area.
  • Alternatively, you can try adding a Z-Wave signal repeater (or any non-battery powered Z-Wave device) between the Smart Plug and hub to see if it resolves the issue. 
  • Whenever moving the ZEN06 to a different location, we recommend excluding and re-including the device so that the hub can find the most efficient communication route to the device.
