Using Homey Pro v7.0.0 i was not able to add more zigbee units. Ofter advice I reset the Zigbee network, and then i was able to add devices again. But after 16 devices I cannot add any more. Still have 3 Aquara Temp measurement devices but they is not ‘detected’.
Have tried location near homey, but all the first devices where added from a more distance without any trouble.
So how can I get more devices in ?
The Channel is 13. I do have a Unify network with 2 AP ( using channel 1 and Channel 6), so the 2.4 GHz migth be crowded. Can I plan this somehow ?
Afaik when running firmware v5 and up, you should pair zigbee devices close to the nearest router device.
About the channels:
Wifi ch.1 and zigbee ch.13 are too close to one another.
I would like to advise to change wifi ch.1 to ch.11.
If that isn’t possible, change zigbee channel to 22, 23 or 24. Keep in mind changing the Homey zigbee channel can cause devices to lose connection. Which ones and how many is unknown.
Here’s a wifi vs zigbee channels overview:
Great advice, moved the AP with most clients to 13, the lesser AP to 6, and zigbee to 11. very low interference reported in Unifi console
But still impossible to add more devices.
I observe that the developer panel current command has reverted to IDLE but the pairing screen on my homey app still shows the pairing screen, and ask to confirm aborting the pairing progress. I find this very suspect. Looks like something is wrong here
It might be a &#%×"> but removing some end devices, and adding some router devices should do the trick.
Then you could try to add those end devices, and your new ones again.
And then pair them, in Robert’s words, at or near their final location. Athom’s zigbee advice here.
Regarding zigbee channel 11:
wifi channel 1 can still be busy if you have neighbours with wifi whithin wifi range.
You can check it with
Android tools: Wifi Analyzer (and Wifi Heatmap can also reveal interesting info)
Iphone tool: Network Analyzer Pro ($4,‐) (and Wifi Sweetspots (=heatmap))
Well, then I found that several of the Auara Temp monitors is refusing to be added. When trying other I did get all, but 4 Aquaras wount add. They enter 3 blue blink state, but is not added. What can possible be reason to that ? I alway try to add them near the desired router.
The topology below is just as I want it, but have four sensors not adding …:
@btaa , what works best for me when adding a zigbee device is hold de device in very close range of Homey (a few centimeters). Then, when added, remove the batterie, hold the device near the router that is closest to the final location of the device and plugin the batteries.
