Connecting 2 Z-Uno devices

Post by sdtlee »

Hi,

I would like to ask about setting up the z-wave network with two Z-Uno2 devices.

Let's say I have 2 Z-Uno2 devices (Device A & Device B).
Is it able to create a z-wave network with Device A, and let Device B join the network that is created by Device A?

Regards,
Lee

No, Z-Uno is not a controller. You should add them using a Z-Wave controller. But a good news is that you can then remove the controller. Just make sure to remove all associations with the controller before removing it.

Hi PoltoS,

Thank you for your reply.

This is the first time I develop Z-Wave related project. So I would like to confirm if my understanding is correct or not.

Let's say I have 2 Z-Uno2 (Device A & Device B)
I also need to prepare a Z-Wave controller (Controller A).

1. I have to add both Device A & Device B to Controller A's network. So that Device A & Device B can be comunicate with each other.
But a good news is that you can then remove the controller.
2. According to this sentence, is that Device A & B is still able to communicate without the controller (remove both "linkage" between Device A & Controller A and Device B & Controller B)?

In other word, I only need the Controller A to help me to setup the network. After that, Controller A can be removed, and Device A & B is still able to communicate with each other. The controller is no longer required unless I need to adjust the network such as add or remove devices?

Kind regards,
Lee

Your understanding is correct.

To remove links you need to clean associations (remove Controller A from all groups) and set the wakeup to the maximum (if it is a battery device).

Hi PoltoS,

Thank you very much.
I have successfully to connect the two devices with the help of controller device.
I have setup the channel (ZUNO_SETUP_CHANNELS) and put them in the same group (group 2).
And Device A can send signal to Device B through zunoSendToGroupSetValueCommand.

One more question, may I know if there is anyway to know the RSSI on the receiver side (Device B) when zunoSendToGroupSetValueCommand signal received?

Regards,
Lee

Not via the Z-Uno API. But you can use it in the Zniffer mode (in your case PTI mode is better than modem).
