How to properly include a Z-wave device?
Sorry if this is a newbie question, but I'm not 100% sure if I understand how to properly include a Z-wave device.
From my understanding, the Z-wave device should be within 1 meter of the controller when adding/joining the device. This is because the device lowers the radio output to make sure the neighbour (or anyone else) can't "hijack" the device in this process.
So far, so good.
The problem arises when I want to actually move the device to it's permanent location. The z-wave protocol is based on a mesh network, and moving nodes after the inclusion process might result in incorrect mesh network. Because of this, the z-wave device should be added to the controller after it has been placed in it's permanent location.
These two rules (include near the box, and include at permanent location) is conflicting. The Zipabox is permanently mounted.
Aeotec has an usb stick to handle this, and Vera has battery backup and a physical button on the controller to add devices. This makes it possible to move the controller to the device, and start the inclusion process.
How is this properly done with Zipabox? Should I add the device next to the Zipabox, then move the device, the heal the z-wave network to rebuild the mesh routing table?
I'm not sure if this is a problem at all.. I might just be a bit confused ;)
