ZWave hardware
« on: October 21, 2009, 10:58:12 pm »
I'm still on 0710, I haven't had a reason yet to upgrade to 0810.

I'm looking to finally trick out my whole house with ZWave.  I have about 5 items on it now, I'd like to replace most outlets and light switches with ZWave modules.  I just don't know if they are all compatible, or if some people know of any with issues.  Should I just buy a bunch and presume they'll all work?  I am using a Micasaverde stick to control things now and it seems to be fine.

I guess I'd like to know of any non-working ZWave devices.

If you talking about ZWave Light switches or Plug-in Modules then we have not seen or heard of any incompatibilities. The worst that might occur is that some of their more esoteric modes or features will not be accessible but thats about it.

Hope this helps.

All the best

I mean things like replacing the recepticles and light switches, I've got light dimmer modules and appliance modules now, I'm looking to replace the wall jacks.  Thanks for that site, I'll check it out.

Sure i understood that it was the 'in-wall' devices you wanted to replace...my point was that our experience is that these all inter-operate correctly with one another.
