    Default Danfoss release of Z-wave technology?

    Danfoss has released a new wireless heating control system (http://www.danfoss.com/NewsAndEvents...oducts/CF2.htm): It seems as it is Z-wave but it can not be found anywhere in the documentation. If it is, then I wonder what type of data you can get from that system.

    what makes you think it's z-wave? I couldn't find anything about z-wave connected with the CF2 or anywhere on the Danfoss site...

    Danfoss is part of the Z-wave program + the selected frequencies...

    It is 100% a Z-wave product.

    According to the website, the product is compatible with the standard EN60730. Doesn't look even near to Z-wave....

    EN60730 is not relevant to z-wave, it is a z-wave product.
    Nice site Richard, liked your PIR sensor.

    Thanks for the compliments, Phil.

    Is there any public announcement which confirms your statement? Can we ask where you gained this wisdome?

    Sure hope this is Z-wave indeed! Would be a very nice addition!

    Regards,

    Richard

    I found the answer to your question:

    http://www.z-wavealliance.com/conten...House_CPH).pdf

    Could answer mine:

    is it possible to replace the control of the remote by a PC and the USB unit?

    If you mean that you want to use a pc to control Z-wave units instead of using a remote controller, look at http://www.automatedoutlet.com/produ...cat=121&page=1. Please note that, as far as I know, HomeSeer is currrently the only software which can control this USB device.

    Also, there is some rumour in the community that the serial model ( http://www.automatedoutlet.com/produ...cat=121&page=1 ) is more reliable than the USB-version.

    Regards,

    Cf2 is (at the moment) a stand alone system. I the future I want to combine the house alarm with light switches and heating.

    So by controling the Danfoss system by PC it is possible to give a "lower all" when I leave the house. Therefor I need to be 100% sure to have 'remote control' other than the original 'remote control'.

    The original remote to me is just a nice 'add on' which I'm planing to use as a zonecontrol for a big room with 110 m2 floor heating.
    I'm planing to give diffent offsets to kitchen, diner and living area at different times.

    So i'm looking for certainty before a spent my money on this system
