I have been running Home Assistant for several months now, and I’m very pleased! But:
I have some serious z-wave problems.
Sometimes, when I restart hassio, it starts, but there are very few devices that show up. The rest are logged as unknown.
Sometimes z-wave network doesn’t start at all.
Sometimes it starts and everything looks fine from the beginning, but:
Z-wave is extremely slow for some devices, but not for all.
Yesterday, turning on some LEDs via a qubino dimmer took several minutes (at least that’s what it seemed like).
Today, the same LEDs react immediately.
Starting the z-wave network also takes a long time, 15-20 minutes.
I have about 50 devices. Almost all are directly “visible” from the controller.
The controller is placed in my basement and is at the center of my house.
I’ve tried connecting the controller, Aeotec stick5, direcly to my computer (Intel i5 NUC running Debian 9 stretch) as well as via a 1 meter USB extension cord.
The stick is the only thing that I know that is operating at the z-wave frequency.
I’ve tested with two different Aeotec sticks.
I’ve tried testing and healing the network.
Please, I need some advice so I can start searching for a solution!
