I tried to add my brain as a secondary controller to an ISY zwave controller. The app looked like it was working but then said inclusoin failed. Now I have an unknown device showing as unavailable. Iv'e tried deleting the device, excluding it, and resetting the zwave controller in the brain but nothing happens. The unknown device wont go away and I don't want to make the brain the primary controller with this weirdness still there.
Resetting the controller should remove any references to being a secondary controller as well as all devices. Could you elaborate what you mean by "resetting the zwave controller in the brain but nothing happens"? Is there an error message? Does it say "Done" but the device is still there?

I try to learn the actual z-wave devices from SmartThings to neeo it fails. Both controllers sit and spin until they time out.
Can you clarify what you mean? If the devices were already part of the SmartThings network, there would be no need to learn them again.
I have a similar issue: I successfully added Neeo as a secondary controller, added some devices. Later the z-wave network started to behave strange (rgbw lights wouldn't react anymore, even from main controller) I though maybe Neeo was the reason. So I tried to exclude Neeo from the network. This seems not to work.
Reset z-wave controller leads to "Could not reset the Z-Wave controller". Always.
Single devices I was only able to remove from Neeo by force remove.
Newly added devices on the main controller cannot be seen in the Neeo device list (tried "Copy from other controller" -> "Could not replicate z-wave network..."). There seems to be no way to update the Neeo device list when used as a secondary controller. Only the initial copy worked.
In the process I even managed to crash Domoticz which is controlling the main controller (z-stick). Yes, I'm aware, also Domoticz isn't flawless..
Anyone has an idea what else I can try?
Together with all my other little Neeo issues I really start losing patience.. I was ready to tinker, but I was not looking for a whole new hobby just to make Neeo work properly.
What i found out that you only can reset the zwave controller with a complete reset of the brain.....If you are able to include neeo as a secondary controller you only can copy the existing network during the inclusion process. If you add an other device later it will never (at least after one week it is not shown up)show up....
I got some fibaro wall plugs and they are noticed as "light" what's completely wrong......so I guess there are more bugs still there....
