I am in need of some advice. As with so many other people I am in the process of moving from SmartThings.
Over the last couple of years, I have rebuilt my HA several times and come to appreciate that Aeotec Z Wave HEM devices slow Z Wave to a crawl. I keep 5 of these devices on a single HUB with all my other Z wave devices on a second Hub.
My Full device list looks something like this:
• 5 * Aeotec HEM, 1 three-phase, 4 single-phase (Z Wave)
• 30 * Dual Relays (Z Wave)
• 10 * Single Relay with power meters (Z Wave)
• 5 * PIR (Z Wave)
• 7 * Dual Relay Wallplate Switches (Z Wave)
• 5 * Temperature Sensors (Z Wave)
• 3 * Smoke Detectors (Z Wave)
• 5 * Valves (Z Wave)
• 1 * Z Wave Repeater
• 5 * Various Sensors ( Zigbee)
• 5 * Daikin Aircons (Wifi)
• 20 * IP addressable switch nodes.
All the devices are older without z wave security.
As far as Apps go. Everything runs via Webcore and Action tiles with data being squirted into InfluxDB. I may need to add node-red and am I am guessing I will need to install Hub Link as well. But certainly, none of the other built-in apps.
So, my questions are.
1/ How many Hubitat hubs do you think I should split my devices across!
2/ Should I keep the Aeotec HEM on a single HUB!
3/ Should I load the Main Hub more lightly with Devices to leave processing power for the apps!
4/ Does the Hub Link App take a lot of processing power and make the above questions irrelevant!
5/ Is there any way to see the loading on a given hub to help with the above decisions!
Any thoughts welcome, please!
PS. just waiting for Action tiles and full back up (inc Z Wave) so when I move across, I can save the setup as I go and avoid having to rebuild things which is one of my biggest headaches as devices are scattered everywhere with many hard to get at.
Happy New year and Thanks, Everyone.
