Starting all over?

the last couple of day why zigbee devices are unavailable, i then go to my pi pull out the zigbee coordinator plug it back in and reboot it, after several minutes waiting everything restores.
Because i was new to zigbee i order a cheap **s coordinator (ZNP = Texas Instruments Z-Stack ZNP protocol: CC253x, CC26x2, CC13x2 by ZHA)

Now i am thinging that the problem is in the coordinator because it was a cheap on (did save the logs)
So i ordered a new one, Conbee 2 because this one seems to be much beter.

Now my question is should i migrate to deconz with the conbee 2 or start all from scratch, what would be beter? ( i am running HA on an rpi3-64)

One off reply. You said it happened in the last couple of days. Have you used it without issues before? Did anything change .e.g. power supply to pi, as it seems you are hitching the power. ?use higher power supply

Nop No hardware modifications, only the normal updates.
I was planning to upgrade to conbee 2 any ways.

I sayon internet i need a usb 2 extension cable for better results for the conbee2.
What do i need 1 meter 2/3? or more?

I have only really just started. I bought lots of wifi sonoff kit and had never had time to install it. Now I too was thinking about zigbee because of long term power considerations, though this has been recently tempered by the amount I have been able to do with an sonoff rf bridge which allows usag of low power sensors. For what it is worth I ordered though have not installed zigbee stuff yet.

See Zigbee (ConBee) and WiFi Interference

I don’t see what the length of the cable has to do with it - ?add interference and decrease available power.
The above link I noted was about conbee.
**Is it worth using a powered usb hub to see if it makes a difference.
Is the pi somehow switching usb off to save energy or due o a sleep mode?

CC2652 is now the way to go, and use zigbee2mqtt IMHO


Why? Just wondering

It’s the newer, higher powered chipset.

What’s the biggest difference between yaml or UI, can both work with hacs?

Can I ask why on that recommendation?

I’m using native ZHA and I’ve been thrilled with the results. But I see lots of people here prefer MQTT. What am I missing?

The ability to decouple from Home Assistant.
By running add-on’s decoupled, it allows my critical automation’s to function without Home Assistant

Ahhh. Makes sense. For me HA is my primary home automation system. In fact, it’s really my only system. That’s where I started, and I’m trying not to add any other dependencies. It’s great that there are so many different ways to approach this!

look like a problem with my Zigbee coordinator right?

anyone famillair with these errors?

How many devices do you have connecting to the coordinator? Have any routers?

CC2531 firmware supports 20 devices connected directly to the coordinator. Having routers in your network, the network size can be extended.

It is a known problem with CC2531. Taking them out the USB port and plugging them back in is normally the solution.

Yesterday i migrated from CC531 with ZHA to Conbee II with Deconz.

did a fresh install, tonight i am doing the last configurations and will test it
