Forums : Two Aeon Z Sticks in the same QNAP device
This page last changed on Mar 09, 2015 by woter324.
Is it possible to connect two Aeon Z Sticks to one QNAP device, and have them both recognised by OpenRemote?
I have my office and IT equipment in an outbuilding, over 30m from the house. There is network connectivity between the office and house, by way of 4 CAT5E cable runs. To control the Z-Wave devices in the home, I plan to use one of these cable runs with a USB over CAT5e device, thus connecting the Z-Stick in the home, to the QNAP in the office.
I don't know if this will work and I can't see why it won't so assuming it does, I now have an issue where I would like to control some garden lights and a fish pond pump. The switches are in the office and therefore are out of range of the Z-Stick in the house. My idea is to connect a second Z-stick to the QNAP with some Z-Wave relay's in the office.
Ideally, I'd like to install a DIN rail mounted 2-channel relay straight into the consumer unit located into the office, however I only have 4 spare ways on the consumer unit, ruling out C-BUS and this KNX device seems to require a 24 volt rail, rather than the 230 V rail found in an ordinary consumer unit.
If anyone knows if one can run two Z-Sticks in the same device or come up with a better solution, I'd be grateful if you would point me in the right direction.
