ZWave / Add all devices or just as you need them?
I wanted to gain consensus on what everyone else is doing with zwave. Specifically, are you adding all of your ZWave devices at once, or are you only adding them as you need them.

I initially added all of my dimmers and light switches, but am only really using a small handful at the moment in my CQC implementation.

I am not sure if I should remove those that are not needed or used at this time and then just adding on an as needed basis.

Wanted everyone's thoughts/experiences.
Absolutely don't add any not needed. It's just extra work for the driver and overhead on the Z-Wave network, and most likely it will make those that you are using a bit less responsive and increase the odds that one that's a bit flaky will be causing issues for the ones that aren't.

Thanks. I picked up a used RadioRA2 main repeater off of ebay and will more than likely be moving over to that slowly.
