Security is an optional feature and doesn’t define +
Bingo. So with all my devices being + I guess I'm already set.
ahhh.. ok.. I feel much better.. I thought you were intentionally buying old z-wave devices...
Yea.. you are good then..
It's all good.. I'm just really glad you weren't filling up your mesh with old devices..
It's the Covid-19 shutdown. We're all moving a little slow.
Yeah! That's it!
The only devices I have that might fit that description are the Iris 3326-L that I got from our favorite E-Bay seller, and they are Zigbee.
With no thought whatsoever into the divide I've wound up with all my sensors being Zigbee and all my controls being Z-Wave.
That's still z-wave plus.. Even as old as that is ... That's why I was in so much shock when you said you were avoiding plus..
Nope, they are clearly Zigbee devices and I'm using the Generic Zigbee Motion Sensor driver.
Yep.. was confusing it with the plug which is both
Actually - they have a z-wave repeater built in. But it requires a separate z-wave inclusion independent of the zigbee pairing.
Scratch that - confused it with the plug. COvid-19 strikes again
You have no idea how much better that makes me feel.
I keep reading Zigbee sensors respond faster for lighting automations. Are Z-Wave motion sensors noticeably slower?
I have zigbee (Xiaomi Aqara) and z-wave+ motion sensors (Dome, Fibaro). They're equally fast. My old z-wave ones (GoControl) were noticeably slower.
Some are, some aren't. This is not a protocol thing it's the decisions of the device vendor. I have a couple that are just as fast as Zigbee.
Yes.. Z-wave motion detectors have gotten a bad rep as a few "security focused" devices had slow re-cycle times to save battery..
Don't forget the "pet friendly" horrible things that take forever to reset multiple motion events before they will trigger.
What? You think the 4 minute default reset on the ecolink motion sensors is too long?
These are actually good.. Yes they are slow... But the battery life is amazing
But I have dogs and as such I have these (along with fast motion sensors).. But only the pet immune ones are tied to HSM
