I’m testing a simple setup before setting up the entire house with GE Z-Wave 12724 dimmers (http://www.amazon.com/GE-Z-Wave-Smart-Dimmer-12724/dp/B006LQFHN2).
The whole thing is wired up sitting on my desk, I have two dimmers each controlling a recessed light fixture. I can turn them on/off from the app and the lights respond instantly. I create a simple recipe where dimmer 2 follows dimmer 1, simple. It works but say I turn on dimmer 1 it will take 5-10 seconds for dimmer 2 to follow suite.
I have the SmartThings open in front of me and it takes 5-10 seconds for it to visually indicate that dimmer 1 was turned on/off so I’m not sure if that’s some sort of indication that the problem is in the ‘zwave network’ rather than in the ST hub/cloud.
I tried to run z-wave repair from the app, no effect.
Btw I have another Zigbee remote and the clicks on its buttons are registered instantly. One of its button turns on dimmer 1(z-wave) and its instant.
Am I doing something wrong? Is Z-Wave a super slow protocol? Is there an easy way to debug this?
