Running two gateways side-by-side



  • Hi all,

    Just wondering if it is OK to have two gateways running within range of each other. I have a home system running, but want to build a system for a friend and do the testing at home. That means I will have two gateways (and their nodes) within range of each other when doing the test and build.

    I would imagine both gateways will pickup all nodes. Would this cause confusion in the systems?

    Thanks for the advice

    Both gateways will hear senor messages and send hardware acks which could result in strange things I imagine (st=fail). But nothing too scary. If you start involving repeaters in the setup and new sensors sending ID-REQUESTs with responses from controllers, things could get weird.

    I'm debugging stuff with two gateways in hearing-range right now.. nothing has broken yet :)



  • Could you just change channels from the default to use in the test system (both g/w and nodes), then revert back after all the bugs are gone?

    Thanks guys. Will jump in and see what happens.
