As part of a quest to improve reliability and WAF, I’d like to have 2 HASS.IO instances in separate VMs, one with the ZWave integration and one with everything else.
This should lead to being able to quickly restart HASS.IO (without waiting minutes for my ~40 device network to come fully online) as well as protect the “delicate flower” that is ZWave in HA (seriously, restarting while the ZWave network was still starting has been a cause of sooo many issues).
So, how could I achieve this?
I was thinking MQTT, but I don’t want to use the ZWave2MQTT addon, as from what I’ve seen it replaces the existing HA ZWave integration and looks much tougher to setup and maintain.
What I want is to not touch my existing ZWave config, only add something that can forward its states to my other HASS.IO instance, then move all my automations that rely on these states to the new instance…is such a thing possible?
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
