All of a sudden my vera reports “no zwave dongle”, and the blue light on the dongle seems dead.
My vera is a v1 and I use UI4.
My vera EU version is from October 2008.
I have not seen much about others having this issue but I supspect that the battery in the stick is dead… But how can I verify this and then again - is it just too bad? Should I expect this product to be dead after 3,5 years?
You have tried pulling out the dongle and putting it back? I have to do this every so often even on my Veralite, accompanied by a cold reboot at the power switch.
Plug the dongle into your PC to rule out that the USB port on the Vera is the culprit.
I tried that already.
I however did remove the dongle and pressing the reset switch for a couple of seconds and that seems to have fixed the dongle.
It works now again
This was a known issue with the first gen Aeon Dongles, and the later ones that were firmware upgradable had a fix for this (allegedly).
If you have one that can be upgraded, and never have, then you should try to update:
