When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Plus and GE Z-Wave Plus Fan Control
« on: December 23, 2017, 04:23:45 pm »
Hi,
I just installed a the following GE Z-Wave device to control a celing fan:

It it working fine manually as a single switch but for whatever ever I am unable to get my Echo Plus to detect the switch.  I've attempted all the recommended troubleshooting steps - reset to factory default, pulled in and the air gap switch. 

I'm hoping I'm just overlooking something but.no matter what I try I am unable to detect the switch.  Does anyone have any suggestions? 

Thanks!

Echo plus hub runs on ZigBee not zwave. So, it won't work due to incompatibility, I suppose. Next time buy a ZigBee device.

Asianrocker is correct. You will either need a z-wave gateway (hub) to have Alexa control the switch, or return it and look for another solution.
