    What is the node limit with a Pi and HS3 for Pi?


    I am having trouble with some of the nodes/devices either losing communication, or being lost to the network.

    I am up to node 71.

    It's like I have gremlins. I remove a node, re-add it. Then I see another node is lost.

    I realized something odd was going on when I added a z-wave power outlet switch to control the HWS recirc pump. I have tried three different brand switches, they all disappeared off the network with a few hours. I moved the switches to another part of the house and the stay in network. I have devises all over the house, so I am assuming it is not a distance issue.

    Anyone have any clues what might be happening here?


    The official node limit for z-wave is 232. The HS plugin supports that. There are many with more nodes than you. I'd suspect an issue with the -wave database file. It can be rebuilt by going to the page and clicking on "Reset Z-Wave Data". This will rebuild the database from the info on the z-wave chip in the controller. Make sure you have a good backup first.
