C8 Zigbee instability - possible attributes

Thought I'd leave my recent experiences regarding my zigbee devices, post C 8 migration, In trying to stabilize things (zigbee devices falling off network, or non responsive).

There are a few things that appear to have improved my stability (this maybe unique to my environment):
1- Stopped a nightly automated HE hub reboot process (Rebooter)
2- Stopped doing device "configure" in my webcore scripts (i thought this initially helped)
3-Stopped doing massive device "refreshes" on all my devices periodically - I thought this helped them stay "awake"
4-Loaded platform .125 - which appears the most stable thus far (fingers crossed)

So items 1-3 actually made things worse rather than to improve.

My setup is far from optimal but its certainly improved.

Good points, and thanks for posting.

Sometimes the best thing to do is less (or nothing, at least for a while) and your results seem to support that. Advice we are given by HE staff and the gurus here fairly often. :slight_smile:

I do find poking at @Ken_Fraleigh off and on can be fun, but since he's neither Zigbee nor Z-Wave, it probably won't cause any harm. :wink:
