I’m having a ton of trouble after migrating my setup ,any help or experience would be fantastic.
I’ve been using z2m with a conbee-ii and a rpi4 for years with zero issues. I live in a small apartment with every bulb and switch using ZigBee, so the network is rock solid.
I was hoping to switch to running HA in a VM on my synology NAS, just to simplify things. but at the same time I’m switching to a Skyconnect, with the dream being to move all the smart stuff over to thread in the next while.
this is where the problems start, the z2m addon crashes in a way that the watchdog doesn’t catch every 6-72 hours, so i have to notice and restart it manually. zigbee binding doesn’t work, at all, motion sensors don’t always send their events, switches sometimes misfire, new sensors don’t successfully interview, etc. its a mess.
I don’t have a full day or two to rebuild the network a bunch of times so i am hoping someone has a good guess which of these is causing all my problems:
-the fact that I’m running a VM
-I’m using a skyconnect
-I’m using a skyconnect in multiprotocol mode
I’m leaning towards multiprotocol being the most likely culprit, and i don’t have any thread devices, but support for this stick still seems to be a little spotty even in zigbee-only mode.
does anyone have a similar setup?
