So I started my adventure after getting a 20 day Vivint home security demo equipment and watching the installer pair everything. I realized that after everything was installed there was not much to customize, …enter OpehHAB. The installers never uninstalled the old gear which is all zwave, with some devices that may be propitiatory to Vivint. (If they ever show up I’ll haply hand them the old gear.)
Meantime some coworkers handed me some of their old equipment, most of which pares to a 2gig control panel (2gig-cp21-345e). It has zwave and some non-zwave sensors. I have setup the server and started customizing, but am waiting for my zwave stick.
Now for the noob questions… if I pair the equipment to the control panel, can I still control them and get readings via my soon to arrive zwave stick? If not, is there much use for the control panel? Is there anyone with experience paring to the control panel? There is not much I have found on google.
Thanks for any advice. I’ll try and post my results once I’ve made progress.
-As an F.Y.I.: my familiarity with OpenHAB is currently pretty low but feel free to get technical.
