zigbee traffic and programming




Should I use this sort of programming or just call the scene.  My thought was that the controller would know what scenes are active if it activated it but I wanted to make sure if I wrote it this way, I was actually decreasing zigbee traffic or is it totally useless or should I simply call the lighting scene when a button is pressed and ignore the traffic.  I have about 105 zigbee devices with a lot of scenes and background programming so Im trying to lean down my zigbee noise to avoid possible delays.  

? If Lighting Scene "Entry Lights Scene 1" is inactive

  ->Activate Lighting Scene "Entry Lights Scene 1"


So, is does reduce work on the zigbee network by not calling it every time if it's already on or does it increase the work load for the controller and zigbee.  Any tips would be appreciated!


Thanks in advance.

Hmm. Well, I suppose TECHNICALLY you're offloading a bit of zigbee traffic, and adding a bit of logic power requirement but I sincerely doubt it'll have any major influence either way, and is just going to be a bunch of work for no real gain.

105 zigbee devices isn't a huge deal as such, at least assuming the system is spec'd and setup properly (ie at least two meshes, and appropriate main controller) - are you having a lot of issues?
