If so, what devices are you able to control?
* Switches <---<< : yes
* Dimmers <---<<: yes
* Thermostat : we support Thermostat Setpoint (set a temperature) and Termostat Setmode ( turn on/off heat/cool)
* Door Locks: comes with the security CC to be added this month
* Door/Window Sensors <---<< yes
Generally the RaZberry implements the Z-Wave command classes 1:1 so every Z-Wave device that complies to Z-Wave and is certified should work out of the box and experiences so far validates this statement. However 100 % guarantee can only be given once the device is physically tested. if you find a device that is not supported ( except the door locks where support comes with security commands later this month) please let us know and we WILL add it. we have tested the code physically against > 200 different devices but not all devices. (JASCO was not tested since we are in Europe and did not get the device into the lab yet)
The part 2 question I was really asking if a Razberry (Raspberry Pi + Zwave daughter card) can be a DEVICE used to receive commands from another Raspberry Pi CONTROLLER or SECONDARY CONTROLLER to
* Control the garage door?
* Control automated blinds?
* Get events from the doorbell or phone ringing?
* Sense water under the hot water heater, the sinks or on the bathroom floor?
The Razberry itself is a Z-Wave Device as any other. If does control other products (see above) and is controlled by others. The device can issue a Node Information Frame. The content can be defined in the file defaults.xml of the Z-Way distribution for RaZberry. The following commands are accepted at the moment:
"ManufacturerSpecific", "MultiChannel", "Version", "MultiCmd", "SwitchMultilevel", "NodeNaming", "Basic". This means that you can use Z-Way as "receiver" of certain commands for ON/OFF and Motor control (Up/Down) functions. The bigger problem you will have is how to connect the signal received by Z-Way to real physical actions generated by the Raspberry Pi. This is of course possible but you will need to find ways to connect wires and actuators to the raspberry pi.
