I would like to use Vera, which is a secondary controller in my network, to send a “network heal” command to the primary controller. Is this possible?
More info: the primary controller is a GE Simon XTI alarm console. It has a z-wave, but only a primitive user interface for z-wave. As far as I know, z-wave cannot be controlled from outside the home via the alarm company interface. Its z-wave network is slightly flakey and needs to be healed now and then, also when I am away from home.
I also have a Vera Edge enrolled as a secondary controller. It sees the Simon XTI as a scene controller and I can access it from away from home through the verahome web interface.
So again, my question is whether I can use the web interface on the vera to send a command to the Simon XTI to heal its network.
BTW, a natural response would be to suggest that I make Vera the primary controller, but this won’t do for me, because I would lose integration with the alarm sensors – for example, I have scenes where the alarm motion detectors trigger turning on lights, and the Vera cannot see the alarm sensors.
