  1. Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Read this thread throughly and see the links posted above (post 5)
  2. Is Lagotek out of business?

    Have not seen much of Lagotek in the last couple of years and you are correct as far as the website goes. Sorry to hear about your issues with the system - how much Z-Wave do you have in your house and what else - should be able to come with a system that will incorporate it
  3. Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Based on your needs take a look at the following: Aeon Labs Aeotec DSC18103-ZWUS Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Switch Aeon Labs Aeotec DSC19103-ZWUS Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Illuminator Aeon Labs DSA03202B-ZWUS Minimote - Black Z-Wave Plug-In Modules

    Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Depending on what system you are using to control the Z-Wave network you could use any the following Z-Wave sensors and a little bit of programming do accomplish what you want: HomeSeer HSM100-S3 Z-Wave Multi-Sensor Aeon Labs Aeotec DSB05106-ZWUS Z-Wave Multisensor Everspring HM-TS001 - Z-Wave Temperature / Humidity Sensor
  5. Honeywell TH8320ZW1000

    Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Did you try deleting it from the network before adding it? Alot of times devices have a network id on them from the factory. Devices that have a network id on them cannot be added to another network. The honeywell thermostat should work on the pulse system but it is not on ADT's approved Z-Wave device list.
  6. Should just be a flat fee to turn on the Z-Wave not a per device
  7. Zwave Kwikset and Tuxedo Touch

    Is the Light blinking or solid? Did you delete or remove the device the try adding it again? Put the Tuxedo in exclude or remove mode Press Button B on the lock (upper Left corner small white button). This will remove any trace of network from the lock. Put the Tuxedo include mode Press Button B on the lock (upper Left corner small white button). This will add the lock to the Tuxedo
  8. Zwave Kwikset and Tuxedo Touch

    Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. How close is the door lock to the controller when you are trying to add it? Kwikset and Yale locks need to be right next to the controller while adding to be able to negotiate the security class when adding the lock. If you have been trying to add the lock in place - remove the inside of the lock where the battery pack resides - bring to to the controller - delete or remove the device the try adding it again. Should add correctly.
  9. New to the forum

    Here are a couple of options to look at: Option One is the Vera by MiCasaVerde- if you haven't seen the video take a look. Option Two is HomeSeer - these options have no subscription fees. Each option has its pluses and minuses. I would review the links above and then get out a pad of paper and pencil and look at what you want to automate today and in the future – build your wish list, then go back review the options again. At this point you'll probably have more questions and we will be here to help - Look forward to your next questions.
  10. Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Here are a couple of options to look at: Option one is the Schlage/Trane Link: the Schlage comes with a door lock, a dimmer module and the bridge( which allows you to access the devices from the Internet or your smartphone) The Trane Link comes with the bridge and the Thermostat - subscription price is $ 8.99 a month currently for either. Option two is the Vera by MiCasaVerde- if you haven't seen the video take a look. Option three is HomeSeer - Option two and three have no subscription fees. Each option has its pluses and minuses. I would review the links above and then get out a pad of paper and pencil and look at what you want to automate today and in the future – build your wish list, then go back review the options again.

  11. Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. Whose light switches are you using? Can you control the light group from your phone, Ipad or online? Are you trying to control the Light group from a physical switch?
  12. Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. What you are needing to create is a Virtual 3-way setup. The device that you would use for the companion switch is the Evolve LTM-5 - Z-Wave Wall Mounted Transmitter - White
  13. New House- starting from scratch

    Welcome to the journey this has been a good place to gather information and share experiences about the Z-Wave Technology. How big is the house that you are building - what is the construction? Another option is HomeSeer - multiple security system can be tied in Homeseer including Honeywell-Ademco panels, and DSC panels. Are you looking at a security panel that can do some automation or are you looking to build an automation system that can handle the lighting, audio/video, security system, cameras, etc. I would review the links above and then get out a pad of paper and pencil and look at what you want to automate today and in the future – build your wish list, then go back review the options again. At this point you'll probably have more questions and we will be here to help - Look forward to your next questions.
