Last week I was a happy new Animus user. I have a big z-wave network at home with another system, but I really like Animus now that I set it up in my summercottage.
Now I ran into problems though.
Added one Zwave device (Aeotech Nano Dimmer) and a few 433 devices some time ago… Worked great!
Now I have bought a Telldus plugin switch and a Popp IP 44 outdoor ON/Off socket…
These will be some way from the Animus, so counted that the mesh network would help me.
But it just doesnt work. I can add the devices when they are in the same room, and control them…
But when I move them 2 rooms away its impossible to add them. Or in case they were already added impossible to control them).
The Aotech sits in the middle between them, and I dont see any difference if its powered off or on. VERY strange!
Im not talking any great distances here. In total maybe 7 meters from the Animus to the place I cant control the two devices. I have a 433 device in the same spot and it works great.
And the Aotech sits in the middle…
I was hoping for WAY longer range with Zwave plus, but even worse is that the mesh doesnt seem to work. My goal is to have the devices even further away, but doing tests with as short distances as possible.
Any clues what goes wrong here?
