Creating New Zigbee Mesh Question

I just changed my Zigbee Channel on my HUSBZB-1 as I was experiencing a lot it interference from WiFi. Part of this involves deleting my existing 28 lights.

Before I start adding them back is there a preferred method to adding the lights into the mesh? For instance starting out with the lights closest to the Zigbee stick and working out or does it not really matter?

It depends on the devices. Theoretically, it should not make a difference but at least the xiaomi/aqara sensors can’t cope with changing routes according to issue reports and personal experience.
My zigbee lights (hue / innr) never made problems in this regard but I only have 3 and all of them not that far from the controller.
