Cluster vs Backup and Zipabox + Zipatile and the Pro thingie...
I have a Zipabox since a couple of years back. One of the appealing things with the Zipabox was the cluster functionality combined with the flexibility to add other protocols etc, especially since I have an old 443MHz network since before. During the years I've added mostly z-wave devices to the network but I still have a couple of 443MHz devices connected to the Zipabox as well.
Now I want to take the next step by adding a Zipatile, create a cluster between the two devices and have a really nice home automation and security solution. So I bought the Zipatile and this is when I get confused...
I've tried to get a good understanding of what's needed to get to the target state, but it is not that crystal clear. So please help me verify/clarify:
As I understand it:
* 443MHz has been ditched for Zipatile and the focus for the future will be the zipatile, so having 443MHz units requires a Zipabox (for example I use 443MHz thermometers to controll my z-wave radiator thermostats).
* The Cluster combines the units of the to a logical unit controlling both units devices as one entity?
* The Cluster does not make it fault-tolerant as per management etc? that's called "Backup"? (I would call that Cluster HA or Cluster High-Availability).
* To get the Cluster function working I need TWO PRO licenses, one for the Zipabox and one for the Zipatile? (I would have expected it to be included considering the price of the units or at least be licensed on "owner" basis instead of "per box" as I understand the current licensing model is?).
Also, the Cluster function has been along for years, but as I understand it it still does not work? I've seen month old comments that a fix should be distributed "next week" along with cluster instruction videos etc?
Have I understood it correctly? and if so what's the current state for the Cluster (and "Backup")?
