I run a pretty large zigbee network with zigbee2mqtt. Pretty large is 40+ devices, 15-20 routers, cc2531 coordinator, cc2531 router, plenty of Osram Smart plugs. End devices are mostly Xiaomi Aqara & Ikea Remotes. I read somewhere about a 48 device limit for the cc2531, is that true?
Lately i’ve been running into problems when adding new devices. I’ve got the feeling, whenever i add a new one an old one looses connection. But this may be a coincidence.
Would it be helpful to split my network into two parts (4 floors altogether), each using a coordinator? I have at least one RaspberryPi in each floor running Kodi, so i could easily add another zigbe2mqtt instance. Would that be helpful? Or would another zigbee network do more harm than helping?
Thanks for any hint.
