Thanks, I love constructive feedback. I do have data for my apps. Extraordinary claim? No. I am not making one. You showed me numbers without context (not data in the true sense of what would be needed to ferret out any signifcant conclusions from your personal claim - i.e. types of devices, types of piston, what are they actually doing, etc. I know what I am comparing.). I stated my experience. Your belief system means nothing to me, so whether my experience means anything to you is irrelevant to me. I stated my experience and it is 100% valid and true.
As a programmer, you know that some of the apps require round trips, and this adds to latency. I have seen this first hand and I have data to back it up. I’m sure that you’ve experienced this in your coding background, right (assuming you are a coder)?
One of the issues that my system does have is that it is over 200 devices. Maybe size does matter. Support has stated this as an issue regarding lags. Honestly, I always thought it made it more reliable (my automations rarely failed even during the bad times - scheduling excluded), but then some of the recent platform updates were made to address some size related issues, so maybe it is/was detrimental too.
RM still exists - it just isn’t supported anymore. I still have it. I’m not knocking anything that Adrian did. It’s a great app. The discussion was CoRE vs Simple Purpose Built App. I shared my experiences. Sorry if you can’t accept a response that wasn’t directed to you, but rather to the OP. Sorry if my experiences differ from yours. Sorry if a different opinion or view upsets you.
After 2+ years with ST, I feel that I can state my experience.
