Hello All! looking forward for your advice on whether I am over complicating my setup or if I am indeed on the right path.
Few months ago I upgraded from my C-5 to a Brand New Release day C-8, love it of course. And was wondering, hey, what should I do my with C-5. It's just there gathering dust, and selling it, "could" give me back some money, but, wondering if I can do something.
I've followed the official guide for the migration, on the disabling of Zigbee, etc. etc. and Enabled Hub Mesh between my C-8 and C-5.
My idea of this mesh, is to split automations between the Hubs, mostly what needs a "non HE" device, cloud, virtual, etc. should be hosted by C-5 and whatever is "native" C-8 Should run in itself.
My Network is "small", at most I have like 70 devices, as my house is tiny and overall I just keep playing around with home automations, dare to say that Hubitat Safety Monitor is my main Home Alarm as well, so that's why I was thinking on "investing" to keep the C-5 so the C-8 never gets "hogged" down.
Am I on the right path onto something here? or given the scale of smallness of what runs C-8 am I just adding a layer of complexity that has no real benefit? I'm on the ropes trying to understand whether or not Meshing is a good idea, if everything was working fine before.
Oh, Btw, the 5 sits next to the 8th, just because... space
Thanks for your comments and guidance, appreciate it.
