As usual I have slow response time on my zwave mesh network and lightning fast on my expanding Zigbee mesh network. The last several network repairs keep showing a relatively large number of failures that bother me regardless of them being potentially trivial… so I set out to investigate further.
I noticed something strange on two of the devices that failed the network repair…
Device: Stairs Light
Routing: Stairs Light >>> Game Room Amplifier >>> Hub
Device: Game Room Amplifier
Routing: Game Room Amplifier >>> Game Room Fan >>> Stairs Light >>>> Hub
Let’s say I try to turn my Stairs Light ON from the app, what hops will the message take?
Notice that the intermediate hop (GR Amp) uses two other intermediate hops, one of which is the Stairs Light. Wouldn’t this cause a loop?
