I’m currently running two hue hubs and a CC1352P-2 for zigbeetomqtt. I have the two hue hubs because the whole house is pretty much running hue, but I’ve added tons of aqare sensors and a few innr plugs and innr bulbs using zigbeetomqtt - all plumbed into Home Assistant.
I bought the CC1352P-2 because it supports “100’s of devices” but, I sat down to move my hue bulbs across to z2m and when I hit 100 devices, it started dropping (well, losing comms with) devices I had added before. So I think the max children it can support is 100. So I took a load of devices back out to try joining them via routers…
I tried the new “permit join” via specific devices, trying hue bulbs as the connection device (router) and innr plugs. I tried connecting a hue bulb and an aqara battery powered switch both via both. None of the four combinations worked so I’ve not been able to add more than 100 devices to my network.
I’m really keen to get this to work because the z2m network is SO stable, whereas the hue hubs connections drop all the time.
My question is really for advice/help - has anyone managed to extend their network passed the max direct children? I’m be extremely grateful for suggestions and help.
