How to improve a zwave network?
In short there is nothing that you can do to improve your z wave network, there are a few reasons for this and also a couple of things you can do that might actually impact it.
The first thing to know is that the network is a learning one. It is constantly looking at the traffic on the z wave network and seeing how best to optimise it and ensure it flows faster and more reliably. As such the biggest impact is if you make changes to your house or the network itself.
i.e. If you replace thin doors with thicker ones then the network will have to adjust to this change
You remove devices or unplug a plug that is z wave enabled. In doing this you have changed the actual network and so devices might not work and the network will have to adjust to compensate for this.
We understand this and when designing your network we build this in and then let the system monitor and optimise itself over time, whilst checking it as required.
An interesting article about this is the one below.
My lights/devices don't respond instantly to a command
There are a number of reasons for the system to slow down a little this doesn't mean that it is not working, as long as the devices you need to control still work, then this is a temporary issue. However there are a couple of reasons for this to ...
How do I add devices to my network?
One of the most common questions we have is: how do people make changes to their network, either needing to add devices or remove them. Unfortunately, you are not able to add specific devices yourself as they need to be integrated into the Nifty ...
How do I add new scenes or routines to the network?
One of the most common questions we have is: how do people make changes to their scenes or routines. Unfortunately, you are not able to make changes to scenes and routines yourself as they need to be integrated into the Nifty Brain™ and the entire ...
What is the difference between z wave and Wifi?
Both Z wave and Wifi use wireless waves to communicate with devices but there are some fundamental differences that we need to understand. In its simplest terms a z wave network will allow your IoT devices to communicate with each other over the z ...
