Slow Z-Wave network or slow Z-Way server?

Post by Froschkoenig » 02 Oct 2017 21:17

I have 13 Fibaro Roller Shutter installed plus one Fibaro Double Switch. The idea is, that all blinds go down if the central button is pressed. So pretty easy in general.

Sometime it works very well. The moment I press the button all blinds go down almost instantly. But sometimes for almost a minutes nothing happens.

Is the Z-Way server for whatever reason so busy that it can't process the command instantly or does it take so long to route the signal through the mesh-network of all Z-Wave devices? Although most of my devices are flush-mounted I had expected a stable Z-Wave mesh with at least one device in each room (?).

Any ideas? What are your experiences?

Thanks for sharing!

What version are you using?

Look in the Expert UI for Jobs in the queue (press Jobs in the menu bar).

I am on v2.3.5.

The job queue varies from 3 to 20 without doing anything. See attached.

#64 is a wall plug which is currently not plugged in. So that can't be reached.
#79 is a Fibaro Magic Eye (battery powered).
#75 is a Fibaro Dimmer which was not in use at that time.

Only one packet to 79 (to allow him to report us the value) - this looks ok
Many packets to 75 - all of them are related to a send operation (set dimming level - something is instructing the gateway to send them).
And 68 (some other device) also reports us something.
