Thanks! I thought I would go for the app supported by Athom itself because I was stupid enough to think that they would actively keep it updated. But the Aeotec app is missing the Led Bulb 6 and the TriSensor, both devices I made “please support these” requests for but I doubt they ever will. I can imagine that they get tons of “please support device x”, but if they are new devices on an app you chose to support as a company…
I would be OK with that if they now have all developers working at a backup and restore function for Homey. That is my main reason for sticking with Z-Wave only devices from the minimum amount of vendors. If Homey dies on me without having a backup/restore and I need to reconfigure everything anyway I’m going to switch to another platform having at least backup and restore covered.
With only Z-Wave devices that should make it easier I guess. I also have a rather large house with thick concrete walls. There are already over 10 wall plugged fibaro switches and the Z-Wave network is still not reliable enough. As soon as the Led Bulb 6 gets supported I intent to place those bulbs everywhere I now still have “normal” lights, boosting the Z-Wave mesh even further.
I need over 30 door/window sensors and about 10 motion detectors to cover everything, so that would be an investment I only want to make once, and not to replace when moving to another platform or adding numerous devices to solve the same network stability issues I had with Z-Wave. Couple of false alarms and the WAF factor drops that low that the wife throws everything out.
So this is a bit of a dilemma. The Xiaomi tip is extremely tempting but I would need to change my whole idea about sticking to 1 protocol… will take the weekend to think about that . I do know now that I’m not going for the multisensor 6 or fibaro multisensor.
