Users / Z-Wave Compatible Yale Locks
« on: March 26, 2012, 08:55:35 am »
Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum and linuxmce. Have spent the last month getting my feet wet with the system and I am absolutely loving it. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project. I have my core as well as diskless MD running with the fancy Follow-me media features. Also the Insteon PLM and Lamplinc were plug-n-play. I am now looking for locks. Did some research and did not find any concrete information. Following are some options:
1. MorningLinc Insteon controller with Morning Industry Deadbolt locks
2. Hari did mention the use of some cool RFID tag setup
3. Z-wave related locks (which apparently are not supported due to encryption)

I am a bit curious of the last option. Using an Aeon Labs USB Z-Stick and the Yale Locks (wwwDOTyaleresidentialDOTcom/en/yale/yale-USA/Real-Living/product-details/Keypad/touchscreen/) would it not be possible to manage the lock? Since the Stick has an inclusion controller, would it not take care of the encyption and LinuxMCE control the stick? Apologies for the lack of my understanding on the topic.

Are there any other solutions for locks with LinucMCE?

One last question, Insteon and Z-wave use different frequencies, but can there be any issues using the Insteon PLM and Z-Wave USB Stick on the same core?

Thanks in advance!
