I’m new to the community and I’m comming from an eedomus box. I installed Homey, added some Zipato Window Contacts and some Spirit Heating Regulators.
It takes some time to get a feeling for the interface and to understand the logic. I still do not understand why some contact positions are available in a flow, but disappear in the AND card.
The main problem for me is the Z-Wave signal capture. I can not reach a contact that is at 3 meters in the same room without anything between the Homey and the contact. Some times it works, sometimes not. At 30 cm of distance it works every time.
I’ve read the topics about Z-Wave is low energy, low range and so on, but I do not agree. My eedomus box may not be half as sexy, but I can reach every Z-Wave device in my house without any repeater. The farest ist upstairs at about 15 meters with a ceiling and 2 walls in the direct line. It works like a charm.
Is my Homey defect or is this short Z-Wave range a known problem. In any case I will probably send it back.
