Something you might want to consider (along with anyone else who is interested in z-wave might want to consider) is getting a Vera and just using it as a z-wave interface for MH. It is very easy to interface with Vera's API. You should have access to all z-wave events and commands to a device through this interface. All the 'brains' could stay with MH and the compatibility for different z-wave devices are wrapped nicely by Vera.

Put another way, just because Vera is an 'intelligent controller' as you put it, you can treat it like a dumb one.

I have an example perl project you could look at here:

I also have a python version:

Just FYI - I too am slowly working my way down the Zwave path, and don't want to buy another intelligent controller.  Instead I want all the brains to reside within mh.

I bought an RZC0P too - I think what's missing is that we need to cleanup the MH code!  I'm happy add individual device support to mh, but gave up trying to reverse engineer the rzc0p + mh code...what a mess.

I'm hopefull that if the mh cleanup continues that I'll jump back in at some point

Thanks Chris, I guess I will do that. Just thought it would be nice to have it part of misterhouse.

Hi Nathan,

Save your money, buy a Veralite as your controller instead of the RZC0P. "http://getvera.com/controllers/veralite/" It is pretty easy to talk to using over http:  See "http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Requests#action" for some examples on how to do it.

I used the RZC0P with Misterhouse years ago and it worked, but as new devices came out it just wasn't worth the headache.  The Veralite can work with Misterhouse, or stand alone.
