    Using a contact module to unlock a zwave lock

    So, I'm looking to replace my entryway lock with a ZWave lock. I'm wondering if ZWave door locks can be locked/unlocked by other ZWave modules (like a contact sensor), similar to how Insteon switches link together? I'm under the impression that only "controllers" like HomeSeer can lock/unlock ZWave security devices. Is it necessary for a controller to be the middleman or can a contact module directly tell the lock to Unlock?

    My system is almost 100% Insteon except for two or three ZWave lamps and the door lock, and I would go the route of a MiLock with an Insteon controller, but I can't find one that would match the venetian bronze coloring scheme on our doors.

    Not sure about direct associations. But certainly can have an event for the contact the HS3 that unlocks the door.
