Aeotec Smart Strip Exclusion

I am having problems excluding a Aeotec Smart Strip from Vera 3. I have tried excluding it by using Minimote. No luck. I plugged it next to the Vera 3 and held the ZWAVE button until it rapidly blinks. Then hit the action button on the Aeotec Smart Strip. Just can’t get it to go away. Anyone have a solution I can try?

pretty sure when I removed this, just set into exclude mode via the gui (high power), then pushed the lighted up button once, try pushing it three times, some items do that too
