I'm ready to start throwing money at my setup to get things rock solid. I figure 99%+ of my reliability problems are z-wave related so I want to start surgically removing z-wave like it's a disease.
Here's my plan:
- Add a second C7 hub as a dedicated z-wave hub and begin slowly moving my 75 z-wave devices to it.
- Replace all in-wall z-wave switches and dimmers with Lutron Caseta (about 30).
- Shut off the z-wave radio on hub 1 if I'm able to get all remaining z-wave devices migrated.
My Hue network of lights works perfectly (especially native HomeKit control with Hubitat being the automation orchestrator with Homebridge v2 running everything else) and I hope Lutron is similar.
I figure moving the z-wave devices will clean up all the ghost nodes I can't get rid of (yes I've bought the Silicon Labs stick, a Parallels license, and a Windows license and I still can't get it to work. Almost bought a Windows laptop just for this before I decided enough is enough).
I just want things to work 99.9% of the time. Does this sound like a plan for solid reliability?
