Just curious if anybody is using Fibaro Homecenter 2 and how it compares to other platforms? I tried to research it on their web site but not much in the way of detail there. Looks like all Z-Wave with the ability to network multiple controllers to get around Z-Wave device limits. I wonder how stable this would be if you tried to scale it out for a large installation?

We've had this functionality for nearly 5 years. FYI. You can use any HS3-based system and just add 1 Z-NET for every network you want to set up.

This is the route I expect I will go but a lot of my physical sensors are connected to Homeseer through Elk and other interfaces so any Z-Wave I do will just be lights and locks. I was just curious if every single sensor including smoke detectors and door contacts had to be Z-Wave if the whole thing would be reliable as you scale it out to 400 or 500 devices.

The diagram illustrates our multi-network Z-Wave feature only. If you wish to mix non-Z-Wave devices into the configuration, that's fine. There is no hard limit to the number of devices that can be managed by HomeSeer systems.
