MQTT vs node-red-contrib-zway

Post by chrisgla »

Hello,

I've recently started with Zway and currently have it as a secondary controller to Homeseer.

What is the best supported/ best featured integration for Zway- MQTT or the node-red-contrib-zway?

Using MQTT I could just publish endpoints to Homeseer (it doesn't support some multipoint devices I have)- but I also already have Node-Red running if that's more reliable or better featured. Node-Red also let's me deadband and database data, map it elsewhere, etc.

Is there any plan for either of these to be natively supported within the core Zway product? It almost seems with the way many things are going that Zwave MQTT, ideally with discovery would be a natural evolution for the product to offer users the best of many worlds...


Thanks!

Thanks @PoltoS.

Are there any timescales, and is it likely to support discovery? Quite a few systems now seem to support the Home Assistant discovery schema.
