I have three hub’s now as well. It’s a cold, but beautiful day here and we’re due to get out in the sunshine. Getting a little loopy not going anywhere.
Moving my second Aeon v1 HEM is on slate for later today. Just need to work out getting the separate clamps reporting via HubConnect. I think @srwhite has that worked out for me, but I’ve not had time until today to revisit that. Planning to leave the YRD256 Z-Wave Plus lock and Homeseer Flex on the main hub have had no issues from them. Planning on keeping the third hub free of permanent devices and using it as my new hub.
Is it a disaster waiting to happen if I run two old 300 series Z-Wave devices as end devices in the same hub with no repeater? It will have no other devices in it. I ran them both on the main hub in the past, and besides the suspected havoc they may have caused, they reported just fine.
Sound reasonable, or do you have different advice?
Yep. Understood. They are good devices otherwise and were inexpensive, so I just want to get them both off the main hub so the can have their own hub to F up if that’s what their going to do. Much less expensive than updating them, and auto daily reboots are free.
If they do have signal problems, I can run Cat 5E to them so the hub is close by, and at almost no additional cost for me.
If you had power monitoring and an LED ring (or if the entire decora plate was soft LED-backlit) you could do some really sweet automations for charging and eco-friendly power monitoring. (If using more than X watts, turn red).
A plate with LEDs (night light capability) is something I'd throw in. If there was a pir sensor in there to trigger motion, that would be useful at times, but that's just a pipe dream
I'm sure there's a market for this, but many of the new houses I've seen over the last year (was thinking about moving houses before my illness) had combination AFCI/GFCI breakers. In years to come, I'm sure it'll be a shrinking market.
So of course you will then need a 4th hub to use as a master controller/cloud app hub..
My setup is 3 working hubs: main/basement, upstairs and controller. I also have 2 additional hubs that aren't doing anything yet. Currently my controller hub is also my dev hub. I've been kinda thinking about using an additional hub to split out my main floor zigbee devices. Have to sort my network/hub/device issues out first though...
