I’ve got an apartment on several levels, with Homey in the second level from the first, the living room.
I’ve got a Hue A19/White bulbs all over the place.
I notice about 2 seconds delay upon pressing a Hue dimmer-remote until the light reacts.
A flow works about 70% of the time, reacting to the motion sensor in the room. Until it doesn’t. It just stops reacting to the remote and motion sensor.
Needless to say my family hates Homey a bit, and smart house means stupid house to them.
They just want the lights to work, event if they need to flip the switch. And I have to agree with that stability can be much higher.
My best guess it’s the Zigbee connectivity. Perhaps the walls are too thick/weaponised to let the signal through.
I notice that most devices insist on talking to Homey directly instead hopping via the mesh.
Question: how can I improve on Homey stability? Can someone recommend a zigbee amplifier to force meshing and boost the signal?
I’ve got an impression from this forum homey’s Zigbee radios are very weak.
