I just installed Hass as a VM on my unRAID server. I can access it but of course there’s nothing in it yet.
I wanted to do this because I had ADT pulse, and all the equipment is paid for, I know some of it can’t be reused, but I really want to schedule my thermostat which I was able to do before on ADT Pulse, but since I’ve cut it, I cannot anymore. It’s a Z-Wave TBZ48A Thermostat. I figured, if I spin up Hass, it’d see the thermostat and I can figure out how to connect. I’ve since learned that I need a Z-Wave controller. I figured ADT left one behind and they did. It is a Netgear PGZNG1.
So, my current mission is to see if I can make use of the PGZNG1 as a Z-Wave controller. But all my efforts have turned up fruitless. Basically when I connect I don’t have any way of logging into it. I see it on the network, and I try to connect, but nothing. Seems also that port scans turn up 0 open ports on it.
So, I guess I have two questions.
First, does anyone know if I can reuse that PGZNG1?
Second, I want to control a thermostat using the Hass web interface and schedule temps, etc. what should I get / buy in order to do that if I can’t use the two pieces of equipment I currently have?
