I had a Z-Wave device that I could not delete anymore and I had to search this forum A LOT to get this fixed. I think a lot can be improved on the user friendly implementation, I know Homey is still a bit for geeks, but would it not be mature enough already to make it a bit more user friendly?.
When you go to device settings and click remove, it wants you to set the device in learning mode. Why??? I aborted this because I did not have the device anymore. But reading this forum you learn that eventually it times out and removes the device anyway… that’s not clear from the interface at all. And if you can remove it without setting in to learn mode… why bother your users doing that?
While trying to remove the device I learned that you could also do this from homey developer within the Z-Wave section. And indeed, the device was listed there as well, but the “Remove” option was not available. There were other “Unknown nodes” within that list as well. Don’t know where they came from, but I wanted to delete those as well, but remove has been grayed out.
Only after again searching this forum I learned that you first have to test those nodes and after that remove will become available… again a bit of a poor design if you ask me. Why not always allow a user to remove devices there? Even if they are working?
