@basic261 any update on your Schlage Connect z-wave/Hubitat integration?
I'm in the same boat as you (were in April 2019)...
I'm a longtime ST user. 90% happy, but in the last year the flakiness with its speed has resulted in me looking into local-processing options.
the wait for the cloud* roundtrip was becoming a deal breaker because my single most important smart home use case is the interaction of presence (home/away), HSM (SHM in ST parlance) modes, and locks.
...so I've been trying Hubitat for the sole purpose of solving the cloud delay problem.
unfortunately for me, so far (about a month), it's not going well. I could write a lot about that, but as it pertains to this topic there are two requirements for my desired functionality that aren't being met:
Hubitat struggles to interact and keep the correct state of my Schlage locks. it works about 70% of the time with one lock and about 10% with the other. ST, although slow 10% of the time, always (eventually) worked.
[off-topic] presence. not only does Hubitat drain my iPhone 11 Pro battery, but, sort of more importantly, the presence has about 50% accuracy (I started a spreadsheet but the results were woeful enough that I stopped spending my time on it). I spent all day looking into that. I'm going to try a few things. fingers crossed.
anyway, for now, the promised speed of local processing has me committed to invest some more time.
wondering if you (or anyone else) ever solved this problem.
FWIW, here's what I've done so far:
- changed Schlage batteries out several times. even at 90% - 100% that hasn't helped.
- installed 2 Aeotec Range Extender 7's. Aeotec claims the 7s have 250% greater wireless range than the 6's. but maybe I should try the 6's.
- repaired the z-wave network via Hubitat. waited 24 hours. waited 72 hours. repaired it again. etc.
*there is no cloud. it's just someone else's computer(s).
