coming from insteon where flexibility was pretty much not existent, but execution was absolutly instant. like 50 dimmers all going off at the exact same time.
I understand zwave is different. hubitat gives me a world of flexibility and I love it! but responsiveness is not as good as insteon. and that fine. different product, different.. everything...
so am I doing things right? I have hubitat, welded an external antenna to gain more zwave direct communication. and only zooz dimmers (zen72) keypad (zen32) and relay (zen17).
im after gaining responsiveness when I press a keypad button that controls a scene. I have 7 keypad throughout the house and here are how they are all set. is it ok? could I enhance how i do it and gain speed is scene been applied?
sorry, it's french.
film = Movie time
2e on = second floor on
2e off = second floor off
sous-sol on = basement on
sous-sol off = basement off
so when I press "sous-sol off" (basement off in english) I have a button controler app that just calls the scene "sous-sol off" eveything else in this button controler app is by default.
the scene "sous-sol off" just all dimmers set to off. everything else in the scene is by default.
and I have a rule machine to have the keypad buttons led showing me the status of the basement lights.
- if all lights in the basement are ON, the led will be on for "sous-sol on" (basement on)
- if all lights in the basement are OFF, the led will be on for "sous-sol off" (basement off)
- if some lights are on and some are off, then both leds will be off
I did it this way because if I go in the basement and manually turn all lights on, I want the led "sous-sol on" (basement on) to be on. same for basement off led.
(I have 2 keypad with sous-sol on and off)
I work the same way for every single keypad buttons in my house.
- house off
- main floor on
- garage door
- pool pump
is it ok?
anything in the default settings of zooz devices, scene, button controllers and rule machines I could change to improve responsiveness?
thanks all !
