Open a support ticket through your dealer, this is not normal.

Not normal at all. Should take 10 min tops. Usually like 5 or less

Depends on the controller and size of the project... but 2 hours is crazy. My project is massive and when I was on an EA5, it took the best part of 15 minutes to reboot and stabilize (and half an hour to have the DS2s working properly).  On a CA10, the same project is up and stable in a couple of minutes.

Just curious for bench marking purposes, how massive is your project? Am running 1 x HC800, 5 x HC-250, 2 x IO extenders, with 44 Zigbee devices (Lighting Pucks, Relays, Z2IR, ZEXT, 9 x Remotes, 8 x Motion Sensors, 4 x AC) and 260 LAN/WiFi devices (16 x Screens, DS1, 40 x Lighting, penalized lighting, sockets, irrigation, 5 x Valves, 6x AC, Water Leakage, 22 x Camera, etc), 8 x Audio Zones, 8 x Video Zones, Security, MQTT, IFTTT, HomeKit, 18 drivers, on a reboot takes 3-5 minutes max.

My main house now has about 850:devices / drivers. These include:

- almost 200 Zigbee keypads (each with a load attached - no panelised lighting although I have gone the panelised route at my each house)

- 1 x CA10

- 2 x EA5

- 2 x HC800

- 4 or 5 x EA1

- 4 x IO extenders

- 8 x Z2Io

- 7 or 8 remotes (Neeo, SR260 and SR250)

- 4 x T3s

- 2 x DS2

- 7 aircons

- 10 thermostats

- 8 or 9 zones of underfloor heating 

- pool integration

- jacuzzi integration

- chiller integration

- fish pond integration

- 8 or 9 zones of irrigation

- 13 or 14 audio zones

- alarm with about 60 zones

- additional 7 or 8 motions sensors not linked via the alarm

- generator and power monitoring partially linked in (fully linked in at my beach house)

- a few TVs and one projector

- 13 or 14 zones of audio

- 4 Apple TV’s, a Denon and a Rotel,  a couple of Dunes (not actually used anymore), a NAS for movies and music

- 5 heat pumps (pool, jacuzzi, geyser x 2, chiller)

- 10 water circulation pumps (2 for underfloor heating, 2 for pool, 1 for fish pond, 1 for back up water supply and 4 for jacuzzi)

- 3 blinds, one jacuzzi cover and one set of curtains

- 3 garage doors and 2 gates

- sauna and steam room monitored but not controlled

- 12 security cameras (across 2 different DVRs)

- lots of instances of many third party drivers

- lots and lots of programming.

And I’m sure I’ve missed some things.

I wonder if you go panelized lighting and fewer Keypads you might need less hourse power!

Did you add any drivers lately? Do you have a driver with many instances?

What MQTT driver are you using?  I’m interested in development around this protocol.

Possibly but not that different... my experience (both beach—house with panelised lighting and main residence - without) was that the EA5 started to struggle at around 700 devices / drivers. Adding a CA10 in made a massive difference in both residences!
