Okay, I have everything migrated except the two power meters I am using for my laundry monitor and dryer monitor. I Loooooove not wondering if things are cloud vs local.
So far, EVERYTHING is snappy. I did not need any special device handlers. Almost EVERYTHING works fairly well with generic (Even Tradfri, Kwikset, and Linear Garage opener)
I did find a way to make my Tradfri Remotes still maintain functionality with the lights. But, they are just placeholders in HE (they did not do anything in ST either)
Almost every complex rule I had was handled WELL with the Rule Machine or Simple Automation or Webcore.
130 items migrated, and so far so good. Best part is, if I do not want to upgrade the firmware, I don’t have to. (Not saying I won't. Just never right away)
Have to do a bit more research before I do the last two items as one of the power meters is an older AEON labs that required an OEM handler (and is no longer available) But all in all, this is not just a success, it's a huge step forward. I never realized the lag my old system had until I did not have it anymore.
KUDOS to the team and all you awesome community members!!
