  • HS3 Maximum Number of Devices?

    I just now tried to add a couple of new virtual devices to HS3 (HomeTroller SEL PRO). The first added fine, but the second won't.

    I notice that my total HS3 device count has hit 256 (a suspicious number). I know that there is a limit on the number of Z-wave devices you can have in a network, but is there also a limit on the total number of devices (all kinds) that HS3 will support? If so, what is the limit?

    If there is a limit, you are nowhere near it. I have nearly 2000 and there are others with more than that. I've noticed that sometimes when adding a virtual device, HS closes the window for it automatically and then you can find it under Unknown/Unknown floor/room location.

      HS3 Total device limit is 10,000 and then HS3 starts rolling over re-using unused device reference numbers if available.

        Thank you sparkman and Simplex Technology for your assistance. I'm pretty sure I now know what happened.

        Whenever I click the Add Device button on the Device List page, I expect to go immediately to the Add Device window. When I tried that this morning, the Device List blanked very briefly, then redisplayed itself. As far as I could tell, nothing had happened.

        Later today, when I again added a new device, I noticed that its default name was New Device. On a hunch, I went back to the Device List page and discovered that I had lots of New Devices!

        Lately I've been experiencing intermittent failure of my web page accessing computer's mouse. Sometimes it thinks I've done a double click when I have actually done a single click. Bouncing switch contacts, I guess.

        So, on another hunch, I tried to add a new device with a double click on the Add Device button. And voila! Same symptoms, exactly. The new device got created, but I never got sent to the Add Device page.

        Problem solved, and thanks again.

          As Simplex Tech stated, it starts over filling in unused / deleted devices. I think the total is actually 9,999. I'm over half way there with 5,092 devices total. And yes, sometimes new virtual devices have to be hunted down by looking new/unknown devices. Grab Jon00's device list script from his site. It makes finding phantom virtual devices easy.

            This has been a long-standing bug (years). It's a puzzle to me that it has not been addressed, especially since it comes as a complete surprise to baffle new users - just the people HST should be trying to attract.
