Z-Wave door lock without hub?

Can a Z-Uno control a Z-Wave door lock (Yale) directly, without a hub in the network? ie, can two Z-Wave devices talk peer-to-peer without a controller?

The reason I ask is that this scenario seems to me to be the most secure way to integrate a Yale Z-Wave door lock into a KNX building management system via serial. This would provide an air-gap between the door lock and the IP network.

If that's not possible, I may use a RaZberry approach and just unplug the network cable once it's configured and running - I only need serial-to-zwave communications, not network.

Which is the best approach?

Yes, this is possible. Check ... ckControl/ to directly control the lock.

Before unplugging the controller (RaZberry) make sure to remove it from association groups and wake-up group (if any) of all devices not to waste to much the battery of the lock.
