ISY zWave controller
#1
Is this the ISY controller that works with CQC? https://www.universal-devices.com/reside...zw-series/

I really would like to get the zWave door locks integrated into the system, but the VRUSB just isn't having it. Wondering if there's a better option than that/VRCOP.

I added the Zwave module into my ISY since Zwave wasn't available when I first purchased the ISY but the item that you referenced is the ISY with the Zwave module already included.

However, I think Dean has only added support for lights to the ISY driver. I know I had to go to VRCOP route to get Zwave thermostat support so you might want to check with him before purchasing an ISY to get Zwave door lock support.

Neither the old or new driver currently support locks directly.

However the old v1 driver will pick up status (no battery level, etc though) and I use the Run Programs function of that driver to run ISY programs to control the locks. The ISY has a pretty robust rule engine of it's own.

I don't think direct support would be too hard to add, the category codes for locks just need to be added to the driver(s).

Ugh.

New thought: The VRUSB/VRCOP combo is seriously touchy about non-leviton stuff. Plus, even with Leviton stuff, it looks like I often have red driver fields as if it can't communicate. How is the ISY in either A)non-leviton stuff, or B)"losing connection" to switches?

Locks are supported, but they can't support V2 semantics, so they are just basic, non-V2 Boolean fields.
