Controlling multiple Z-Wave RGBW Bulbs

Post by donaluis » 11 Oct 2019 09:29

I've got two of the Aeotec ZWA002 LED Bulb 6. Using an Aeotec Z-Stick and Home Assistant/OpenZWave.

Whenever I issue a command to change both bulbs to a new color, one starts to change noticeably before the other. Sometimes 3-8 seconds before. They both get to the new color but looks visually odd when changing out of sync.

Is this a limitation to the design of Z-Wave? Could it be something up with my Z-Wave network? Both bulbs are very close to the controller and I've healed multiple times. It's just annoying that they don't change colors at the same time.

Is anyone able to change two Z-Wave bulbs at the same time and have them actually update at relatively the same time?

I think it is not the right forum for your question ;)

Generally, every Z-Wave device have a unique ID and each node is controlled individually, so that there can be no influence within the network.

I'm not sure, but I think HomeAssistant have integrated the OpenZwave Control Panel - so that you can check it here or in HAssistant logs.
