So I got my zigbee stick today and began migrating the lights on my hue hub and some of my zigbee stuff from smartthings over to ZHA.
So far I have about 11 devices connected. 10 of them are lights - they are plugged in and act as routers, 1 is a battery powered zigbee toggle switch. In the few hours they have been up they have worked really well. These devices are in various places in the apartment.
However I have had some issues. The most major is that I cannot add additional lights or devices. I have reset the lights, I have moved them closer to my stick and/or the routers, I’ve restarted Home Assistant and I am really not sure what to do to add them. I was hoping and I was on pace to finish before my wife got home - not so much anymore. I have 5 lights left, 2 Hue, 2 Tradfri and 1 Gledopto - all from my hue hub. Right now one tradfri and one hue strip have been unpaired from the hub and reset but wont connect.
The next issue could be related to the above, my Osram Zigbee Plug wont get added. This was the first device that would not add.
The last issue is my Osram LED Strip, which did connect, but did not work. So it would show up as an unknown entity and report as off - even though it was on. I have since removed it from ZHA.
What do you need me to show you in order for you to help?
I thought the device limit was 20 - I only have 11.
It was also my understanding that the hardware limit was expanded by routers.
From the FAQ:
the default Zigbee2mqtt CC2531 firmware indeed supports 20 devices connected directly to the coordinator. However, by having routers in your network the network size can be extended. Probably all AC powered devices e.g. bulbs serve as a router, you can even use another CC2530/CC2531 as a router (which has a limit of 21 devices).
