Zigbee meshing screwed up

Hi All,

I have been having zigbee meshing problems from day one and cannot seem to work around them (tried reboots, ptp).

In my set up I have 36 devices (some powered that are shown as router and others as end device. Routers are Hue and innr, end devices are Hue and xiaomi). It seems like the meshing is unlogical to say the least.

To give an example;

1 HUE switch is located on the first floor in the hallway. There is a innr plug located in that same hallway that should act as a router, maybe 1 meter from it. The switch keeps on connecting to another innr smart plug which is nor has ever been upstairs or even close. To make it even worse, the switch is not even working since it cannot connect to the router downstairs. No reboot or PTP would change this meshing, it kept on wanting to connect to an unreachable router. Desperate as I was I (physically) switched the two innr plugs so the one downstairs would be upstairs and voila,… it works. but I have a lot more of these strange meshing routes that just won’t change.

Any idea what to do? When the routes make sense, the connections are very stable. It is just that it seems to cause problems when there are routes that simply are too far apart.

I am hoping for an answer other than… “known behavior, please wait for Homey 2.1+ blabla…” or “please reset your ZigBee network and start from scratch”

I have the same issue (and getting a bit annoyed with waiting for the zigbee re-write)
Unfortunately I have no (other) solution for you

Same here… all messed up…

Same “problem” bought some Ikea Tradfri sockets for mainly acting as a router. Meshing is very unlogical, would like so send a rediscover command or such.

Thing is; i (want to) love the product but one of the most used and common device connection protocols is simply broken. The flows work, the apps work… now if only the devices would function in a fashionable Manner.

Everything is there for a superior product. I am simply asking for a bit more priority on the right subjects
