I made reference to ‘low level architectures’ in a previous thread but what I’m really after is this…
Imagine you are a home installer of consumer electronics, alarm systems, IoT devices, etc. How would a complete novice to Z-Wave/ZIP/zipgateways understand what is required, how the devices interoperate and what are the best practises, etc?
What I think would be useful for the community are a few use-cases or reference architectures…
Scenario 1: Small home deployment.
Requirements: Z-Wave controller, Z-Wave devices.
Recommendations: Install controller first, place controller in central location (bad examples, I know…)
Optional: Zipgateway for remote access
Scenario 2: Large hotel deployment:
Requirements: Z-Wave controller per guest room, separate HomeID’s per room, zipgateway for centralised control of all rooms, IP networking capable of delivering DTLS based ZIP packets to the in-room ZIP controllers
Network architecture: , etc.
Does anything like this exist?
