Well I am finding a few (about 6-10) ghost devices (were installed for tests and old controls), but are not even powered now, and am removing them as we speak.
A few are wifi so not even on the z-wave mesh, but still have entries in my hub so possibly are being "pinged" with no response.
I will give it a day or two for the mesh to heal and see if things come back to snappy responses like it used to be.
Also wanted to make sure that all the logging for the repetitive queries wasn't taking alot of time from the hub's processing and filling up memory in the hub.
The logging is helpful for troubleshooting, but isn't needed for regular use, regardless I will get in the practice of keep it off unless I need it.
I know this is off the topic of this thread, but I appreciate all the help!
BTW... I will see what happens when I install the ZSE40's and how that affects the performance. I hope it doesn't, but from what this thread indicates, I may have problems! UGH!
