I’ve just begun getting rolling with OH3 on a rPi, plugged directly into an LCN USB module and running LCN-PCHK on the rPi. Nice, simple, plug-and-play, all-in-one solution to control lights and shutters (and eventually heat and other, so far hidden, LCN capabilities).
Now I’m expanding into a second apartment with a completely separate LCN system, any suggestions on the best way to integrate? It will essentially be one large apartment from a usage standpoint.
I’m assuming the simplest would be to just have a second rPi connected to that apartment’s USB module, running just PCHK connected with a second LCN bridge. Is there any reason I might want to build it out as a second OH3 install and link it up to the primary OH3 that way?
I’m probably overthinking it, but let me know if there are questions or considerations that I don’t know enough to to raise.
