I'm about ready to return the Hubitat Elevation I just bought. Been playing with it for 3 days and I find it finicky, inconsistent and unreliable.
I have about 40 devices setup on ST and primarily use WebCore. I was lured by Hubitat's promises of fast local execution and customization.
I have mostly Homeseer switches and dimmers (some WD-100+ and WD-200+) and a few GE dimmers (first ones I ever bought) and a few other devices.
I decided to start by moving one of my old GE dimmers (12724) since I felt it was a basic generic dimmer. Took me about an hour to include it, because after I easily excluded it from ST, it would hang upon including it into HE. After I rebooted the hub, I could not find the dimmer anymore, and even though it didn't show up on any hub, I put HE into exclusion mode and reset the switch and finally got it out of limbo. Once I got it included, I added 2 motions sensors and made a simple RM4.0 rule to turn on the lights when motion as detected, "Ok, now we're on our way, just a rough start", or so I thought.
Next I moved 1 of my WD-200+ switches to HE since it had built in native support. Inclusion worked fine. But I wanted to change the ramp rate on the devices since the default is SOOO SLOW. It worked easily on ST with Darwin's drivers. After another 2 hrs of searching forums and monkeying around with various 3rd party drivers on the forums that basically adapted DarwinDen's drivers, finally got it work (and change default LED colors) with codahq's driver. But I had to to weird things like reset the hub, change the driver back and forth between the built in one and custom one until it just happened to work.
Now I made a simple dashboard with just 2 lights, my WD-200+ dimmer and my GE dimmer I included first. GE dimmer tile works like a charm. WD-200+ doesn't respond at all. Whenever I refresh it says the light is on (even though it's not). I tap it and it just shows an hour glass forever (this is on mobile and on the PC on the lan). I adjust the dimmer slider, nothing happens. Tried switching it back between the native WD200+ driver and the custom one, no dice. Reset hub, nothing.
At this point I think I need to cut my losses. If it was this hard getting 2 switches to sort of work, I'm worried about my other devices like WD-100+ that are not natively supported, my smart outlet plugs, door sensors, garage controllers etc.
I'm no software expert by any means, but I feel like I'm reasonably savy with technology. Am I going about this all wrong?
