In a system with a SmartThings Hub v3 I have experienced a lot of “incidents” where a simple activity like opening a door to turn on a light sometimes takes a really long time (seen 5-25 sec delays) before the light come on after the door is opened. See a lot of threads in here with similar problems on v1 and v2 hubs.
But could a way to get around this delays be to first use a custom Device Type Handler to set all the configuration on the devices and then change it to “general” Z-Wave devices.
This to move the ‘execution location’ from Cloud to Local. Given that all customer DTH have cloud as execution location.
Are there any down sides of changing from a custom DTH to a “general” Z-Wave device handler, yes you can’t configure the device anymore but shouldn’t it keep the settings done before changing from DTH to Z-Wave?
