How many networks should I have?

Recommended Posts

This is my second year.  Last year I ran everything on One (1) network, but I am thinking I should have more.  My show ran well for the most part last year. Although a couple of times I saw things lag a bit.  Here are the number of devices I have:

 

4 times CTB16-PC

2 times CMD24D

10 times CCP/CCB for outline of house and yard

6 time CCP for MegaTree (new for 2014)

 

I have done some searching around, but couldn't find any recommendations.

As long as they are 500k networks, you could probably squeak by with 1. However, I would suggest at least 2.

 

If it's me splitting up the networks, I put the MegaTree on its own network, and everything else on its own network.

If you have a 500k USB adapter and have them configured for 500k in the LOR Network Settings, then it's a 500k network.

The official answer is, "no."

 

The unofficial answer ... try it and see if it will work. Odds are not in your favor thought.

 

With that adapter, I would recommend a minimum of 3, possibly 4 networks.

I have two sets of ELL's this year although at this instant, only using 1 set. I too am concerned with too much on one buss and will find out in about 2 weeks from now. Last year, 112 AC channels only and it ran fine. This year, 144 AC channels, added 2 CMB24's using only 30 channels out of those, all on the same buss at this moment. I've also added a pixel tree and two firesticks with pixels too but those are on a wireless E1.31 network of its own. I may elect to separate the LOR buss into 2 networks. Sort of depends on what I see once I get Christmas put out and connected.
