So far out of all the home automation devices I've connected to this Raspberry Pi, the most reliable ones have been 433mhz transmitters and ESP32s on wifi. I've been getting spotty performance of Bluetooth and Z-wave devices. Could be that the Pi isn't powerful enough, or could be because simpler is just better.
@aaronpk makes sense. I’ve got a larger residence, and I wanted in-wall switches so my wife & kids could keep using their muscle memory, which left us with zwave and weird stuff like Leviton as the options.
@aaronpk does your Z-Wave software allow you to reorganize the network? I found that to be essential to fixing some connectivity issues I had. I’m using the Razberry / ZWay software. Post organization the mesh-ness was much more reliable for me.
