Sure, I agree especially if this substantially raises the price of the hub while only targeting a small group of power users.
However, this doesn’t explain the inconsistencies. Meaning motion lighting works well and averages around 350-450ms to all of sudden 1-2 full seconds for no apparent reason randomly throughout the day.
Also, the needed random hub reboots to keep things working well.
I’m sorry, I’m tired of all the time spent trying to sort out motion lighting, and the causes of slow downs.
All I know, pull all apps off the hub and do the logic else where, and things run smooth and consistent.
Lastly, I disagree with the KISS examples. I feel like this is just telling the end user to work around the hubs limitations. Obviously people can construct botched rules, and maybe some people need to see these examples, but why give us the ability to break it so easily. Maybe add some smarts to rule creations? A check system perhaps? Something that checks the logic. I don’t even know if this is possible...
My thought is this, we should only have the flexibility to do what the hub can allow without bringing it to its knees. This could be a bad and a good thing depending on how you look at it.
At the end of the day, what I can say is this. A rule, rules, or apps are the cause of my slow downs. Once I remove them, things run great.
Believe me, I wanted Hubitat logic to work for me, I’ve spent a year at it. I can deal with 350ms motion lighting, but the inconsistency and required hub reboots have drove me nuts!!!!
Walk into a room, 350ms motion lighting, I’m happy. Walk into another room 600ms, walk into another room, 350ms, and walk back into the original room 500ms.... hub slows down after 24 hours and calls for a reboot. Walk into a room 2 seconds, walk out and back in 5 minutes later 350 ms.
Looking at logs, errors. Soft reset and things are good. Continue down the path of inconsistent motion lighting, and all of a sudden more errors are found in the logs.
This just goes on and on and on. This has been my experience with the product.
Pulling all apps and using as a gateway, things run good! For the first time in 15 months I got 3 weeks of uptime! That’s amazing! Sadly, as I said before, no apps or logic is being done on the hub to achieve that.
