We have a V3 and a V+…separate networks. The V3 devices are (obviously) z wave gen 3. The V+ is all gen 5 except for one light switch. I have seen oblique comments online that if there’s a gen 3 device on a gen 5 network, all traffic falls back to gen 3. I don’t see how this can be the case, as at least one sensor on the V+ network seems to understand nothing but gen 5…I could never get it to pair with the V3. But if having the gen 3 dimmer on the network is hampering gen 5 capabiltiies, it can easily be replaced.
Thanks in advance, sorry if this is a dumb question.
