My smart plug is working fine. Except it stopped monitoring its energy.

The first place to check is the configuration menu.

Then go to the Z-wave config options

So far so good with a “complete” node status.

Next step is to inspect the node entities. I select one of the entities and view the entity information to verify that the smart plug is not sensing current.

Ultimately, selecting “refresh entity” instantly corrected the problem.

This wasn’t working just a minute ago. It was showing zero amps. After refreshing the node it is working.
