Can it be the case that I am needing to reflash my CC2531 between adding each and every new device? I’m nearing the limit of direct children. I wasn’t able to add any devices at all for months and finally plucked up the courage to reflash my CC2531 stick which worked a treat. Straight away I was able to add a Xfinity keypad which had flatly refuse to show any interest in pairing up until then.
In addition an IKEA Fytur blind showed up as a ‘failed’ interview device which wouldn’t allow itself to be removed. I put the Fytur blind into pairing mode and suddenly it disappeared. This was a good result as I wanted to tangle with the blind later!
Anyway I thought ESPECIALLY as I’d got rid of the blind, I would be able to add a new CC2531 as a router, but it refuses to even think about joining the network. It just flashes red. Anyway I took it to a friend’s house and tried to connect it to HIS Zigbee2MQTT and CC2531 and it more or less immediately connected.
Of course I will shortly be reflashing my CC2531…but can this be correct, that this is necessary? I thought the reflash I did the other day would have been a one off?
