I’m opening a new thread here. Thanks @Mimiix for reminding.
Despite the fact that my LQI threshold/filterung doesn’t work…
One thing that I recognized is, that in Deconz gui, there is not much happening, once system booted up and connections are established. Replacing a good router nearer to another device does not affect the net much. My expectation was that this new router would be used to connect to its neighbours, but it seems that the whole net is more or less fix and does not change.
Same applies for source routes. They aren’t adjusted after some time.
See how a part of my net looks like now:
- You see a source route from “Steckdose Gartenhaus” to “Alarm Gartenhaus”. - OK, but why isn’t there a green connection between the 2?
- I did an experiment and put the “Steckdose Gartenhaus” into an extension cord and placed it right next to Gartenhaus 1. After 2h a green connection was established. I now moved the same cord to “Gartenhaus 2”. Now everything stays the same. - No change at all. Isn’t it strange?
- What does an LQI between nodes like 152/0 actually mean? “I can see you well, but you don’t see me?”
Sorry for this basic questions, but I’m really struggling with my zigbee performance and I’d like to find the root cause.
For point 3, answer is there
Green lines (and probably bleu one) don’t mean there is a connexion. You can have a connected device without lines, for exemple some USB custom router. > ZigBee doesn’t do connections. Each router maintains a neighbour table of known devices. deCONZ queries these tables to map the network, showing a node for each entry (without checking whether the device is actually reachable).
Thanks. As I assumed. Shows me that especially outside my house there are very poor uni-directional connections to anywhere. Still wondering why the bulbs work though.
the streight lines are source routes. So phoscon thinks that these devices are well connected and have LQI above 130. In that case there should be a green connection, but it is not shown. There aren’t any USB connected devices in my net.
But it might be that the source route was established days ago, while there was a good connection. And now (for whatever reason) this connection is no longer in place.
But: Why does in that case the source route not disappear?
Yes, I moved a router and placed it right next to Gartenhaus 1. After 2h, there was a good connection established and shown. Then I moved the router to Gartenhaus 2. The connection to Gartenhaus 1 dropped and there is no connection built up to Gartenhaus 2. I will leave it that was over night and see what happens. Those 2 devices are now 5cm away from each other…
still no change.
I just tried to “read binding table” for the 2 bulbs “Gartenhaus 1 and 2”. The small dot is blinking red. If I do it on other routers, it blinks blue.
Sorry,was ill for a few days.
What brand of sensors do you have? Perhaps Xiaomi? Those are notorious for not changing parents. You can avoid this by pairing the devices on the location where you are using them.
I’m talking about routers, bulbs and sockets. Not sensors!
Same question. What routers?
The Socket is IKEA, the 2 bulbs “Gartenhaus” are from JunYu, some Chinese brand.
Tuya in that case.
Might be that they are not playing along or have good antennas.
I’m trying some other ones, but I’m close to install a second conbee II in closer distance to these bulbs.
Is there anything I need to take care of?
Could I use my current conbee II and set up a new raspberry to try out, if this setup works in principal?
Would my current setup still work once I plug the conbee II stick back into my current system or is there anything stored on that USB device?
This make no sense.
"Given the environment presented in the screenshot above, we can read the following:
- “Luce” see “Humidity 5” with an LQI of 196.
- “Configuration tool 1” see “Luce” with an LQI of 49.
- “Humidity 5” is an end device and thus see Luce as 0.
- “Luce” see “Configuration tool 1” with an LQI of 58."
So 196 is the first number and it’s what Luce sees hum5, but the next line says Conf tool 1 sees luce with the first number of 49. How do we know that?? Why isn’t it Luce sees the Conf tool 1 with 49 and conf tool 1 sees Luce with 58??
Good question, I think there is a prioritary rule, end device are always the second number, but what happen if you have 2 routers …
