Are Schlage BE469ZP CAM 605 Z-wave locks fully compatible IN HUBITAT with Schlage Zigbee BE468GBAK CAM 605?
By fully compatible I mean: is the Zigbee lock’s locked status, battery level, ability to lock and unlock remotely, and use Lock Code Manager exactly like the Z-Wave locks?
(Why do I ask? I have 9 Schlage Z-waves. 4+ years after installation, one has malfunctioned. It is still under warranty, and Schlage will replace it!! However, they have none in my needed finish—gold—in stock and won’t until 2023, and I cannot find any online nor locally. However, I can find a Zigbee version. I understand Canadian zigbees don’t function fully, so I worry the Zigbee is functionally different from the Z-wave. I don’t want to wait and endure my crippled house that was so conveniently automated, but again now requires a keyring.)
I have one working with everything you mentioned using the Generic Zigbee Lock driver.
The ability to lock and unlock remotely depends on whatever automation you have set up--a Zigbee or Z-Wave lock doesn't support that per se, it's just up to however you have it configured on the hub. It sounds like you have something (cloud Dashboard?) set up for your Z-Wave locks, and the same should work for Zigbee. The hub sees similar attributes and commands for both, which is ultimately what apps/automations work with.
Thanks! I will get the Zigbee, and Schlage will reimburse me.
(The Z-wave that died was the classical one, as well. I had a mix of both, and they all worked fine. Leastways, until it died. This is the third I’ve had to replace. The external keypads seem to stop working, or somewhere in the guts, something electronic broke. The first was a few months after being lashed with a hurricane and years on the windward side with strong winds and rain; the next maybe a few hours of hurricane, but generally well-sheltered; and this one completely protected, zero chance of water, but the oldest. All in all, they’ve been great, and Schlage is fantastic in their support.)
I have several lighting zigbee devices as well, so there is a fairly well-functioning mesh judging by my out-at-the-edge temp-humidity sensor. The new lock will be 5’ from the Hubitat hub, as well.
I appreciate all the advice I can get.
