Zwave locks not talking with ElkM1G

Newbie

...using ElkM1G, ElkZwave Controller (M1XSLZW), VRC0P-1LW (vizia rf+3), located in 2nd floor security closet. 2 Honeywell Zwave Thermostats 3 Yale Zwave locks located in 1st floor, programming with VRUSB-1US USB Z-Wave Stick works well as long as up close when assigning nodes...after all testing Zwave devices with Installer software. Created the necessary outputs, rules and tasks in ElkM1, thermostats work fine with Elk rules but locks do not, this is a large house and I understand locks may need more repeaters and beaming devices...have any suggestions for repeaters, beamers, dimmers and switches etc..?

    Use Dimming Module VRP03-1LW installed in several places throughout the house. Make sure to include these into the network as a switch. These do not have to be assigned to an area, unless you want to control something plugged into it from another location.  As long as they're in the network though, they'll be able to repeat signals.  If you have more specific questions regarding your particular set-up it may be more effective to contact our support team at 800.824.3005 to speak with a Leviton representative.
