    They do not communicate with respect to Z-Wave. I am using scripts and other things to try to link them over ethernet.

I removed ALL z-wave stuff from my HS2 and it is acting as if there is no z-wave in it. I moved ALL Z-Wave features and functions to the Zee.

    This idea of using a Zee for Z-Wave is very interesting. I have not got a clue how to get it talking with HS2, although having said that in the early days of HS2 I had HS1 on a separate PC monitoring HS2 and if, did I say if, when HS2 crashed HS1 took over.

      Other than time and cost of course, is there an overriding reason(s) for not going entirely over to HS3?

      The reason I ask is that from where I'm sitting I can't see where the Zee differs (in Z-Wave terms) from using HS3 + Z-Wave plug-in + Aeon USB stick.

      I'm running HS3 and Z-Wave on Windows here in the UK and whilst there have been some serious issues in the not too distant past with both HS3 and Z-Wave, things have been very reliable here for a good few months now and my relatively small (45 node) Z-Wave network is functioning exactly as I would expect it to.

      When I started with HS3 it was a lot of work getting my head round moving everything from HS2 and in fact many things required a completely different approach but now I'm there I can safely say that I wouldn't go back to HS2 now mainly due to the lack of support going forward.

        My problem of going over to HS3 is I would loose about 45% of functions provided by scripts and add-ons to HS2. For I that is not an option.

          Understood. If the only thing you want to do is add "supported" Z-Wave to your existing system, then I suppose adding it as a separate unit makes sense. May be prudent to wait and see what the A2Z device can do.

            Thank you for your suggestion of an A2Z, never heard of it before. I will look into it.
