I have a Raspberry Pi 3 with a CC2531 stick flashed with CC2531_DEFAULT_20190608.zip. I have a long extension cable to extend the range, and the pi is located in the centre of my 2 bedroom apartment.
I have 42 devices, and I’ve apparently hit a wall where they can’t all be paired simultaneously. If I restart zigbee2mqtt whichever devices connect first stay connected, and others will never connect, even if I put them right next the coordinator and try to pair them.
Many of the devices should be capable of acting as routers, there are lights throughout the apartment that are always on. What can I do here? I have another Pi and another CC2531, should I just split the network in 2? Is there a better firmware that I don’t know about (I started on an early firmware with no device limit and that was unstable, causing crashes and the need to re-pair everything eventually).
