Z-Wave Device not responding in flow, but does work via developer portal

I have a Fibaro plug in my wall that doesn’t respond to on or off command in a flow. This seems to be related to the distance to Homey. Because when I bring it closer to Homey, it does work.

However the weird thing is that if I go to the developer portal > z-wave and trigger a “Send Basic Off” or “Send Basic On” it does work without a problem.

I used different Fibaro plugs, to determine if it’s the device, but same behaviour.
Anyone have an idea why?

Side note: My experiences with Homey is that the range for Z-Wave (even it should be mesh and my house is full of them), is horrible. I highlighted that a lot during the last years, but it was always dismissed.

maybe that can help you
