I recently decided to re-do my entire home network and went with Ubiquiti Unifi POE 150w switch and for my Gateway/Router, I am using their USG appliance and have a couple of their Pro Access Points. My USG is plugged in via Ethernet to my ONT (DeMarc). I still have Coaxial running from my ONT into my Tivo Bolt, which now serves as my Moca Bridge.
Previously, I had a Verizon ActionTec Router with an Asus Wireless Access Point plugged in. I cannot remember if my ST Hub was plugged directly into my router or access point but I generally had no ST issues. The Router was plugged into my ONT via Coax only and the router also served as my Moca Bridge for my tv’s and network extenders (I get poor wireless signal in parts of my house and used Moca extenders).
Ever since I redid my network, I have experienced constant lags lights turning on with and missed motion pistons (even though the motion sensors are detecting motion and triggering lights to go on). It seems most of the issues Ive had are zWave devices but I am not 100% sure. There are no unusual errors in my IDE live logging and I’ve done several zwave repairs, but they always fail on a different device. This was the case before as well so I don’t think that is a symptom of an underlying issue. If I go into ST app and turn on a light, sometimes it turns on right away, other times, there is delay. The app often falls out of sync with the actual event.
In my Ubiquiti switch, I have the option of using Manual Link (100mb) for my Smarttthings port instead of Auto-Negotiation and when I try that, my ST hub goes offline. I’ve seen network appliances sometimes not like auto-negotiation. I can also limit the port to Unicast, Broadcast or Multicast Traffic which I haven’t done yet.
I also replaced the entire switch, so I don’t believe we have a hardware issue here.
Everything else on my network seems to be perforiming fine. I am at a complete loss at where this problem lies. Anyone have any clues here?
