With the Sonoff MINI’s we finally have a comparable product to the ZWave Fibaro and Aeotec switches for control.
I am going to embark on helping a friend setup openhab in his new renovation BUT he has 3 floors of solid concrete. Zwave doesnt play well at all over that so I was thinking of setting up a well distributed WIFI network on Ubiquti and then using Sonoff MINI’s . This would solve my reception issue as I can easily spread wifi coverage via PoE Access points.
Yes, I will have no ability to use Dimmers but he doesnt mind.
What are your thoughts on long term usage of Tasmota flashed Sonoff devices for lighting control?
Would it be perhaps easier to have 3 x small NUC like systems with OpenHAB and link them via MQTT and run ZWave?
Be keen to hear your thoughts. Reliability/Stability are key.
