Moving vera closer to the device seems to make no difference. I have tried changing the polling frequency, but still seems to take minutes due to number of devices.
Try setting parameter 80 to 1 (see screenshot) and see how you go.

Mate... that works just like magic! I had tried everyone for advice but no one had a clue. Everything now responds and is triggered within seconds. Thanks!

Yep works for me as well on HS system - thanks big time!

BTW per manual 1 enables HAIL, 2 enables Basic CC report - any idea what is the difference? Both seem to provide immediate status.

Correct, both (ultimately) do the same thing. Depends on your setup / what controllers you have / which of the mechanisms they support.

Do you have more technical details on hail/CC report? I'd like to understand this in more detail if possible....

A hail says the device needs attention and thus can serve as a trigger (e.g. in a controller) to poll that device (e.g. to get a basic report).

The basic report just says what the status of the device is right away.
