zap coordinator vs. zigbee server?
Posted 15 February 2011 - 11:18 AM
what is the difference between a zap coordinator, and a zigbee server??
if i have an hc-200 and an hc-300 installed in my project, which should act as which??

in 1.7, one control4 system can be used one or multiple zigbee servers. NO ZAP was introduce at the time.
in 1.8, one control4 system can be use only ONE zigbee server in any HC-class controller (you CANNOT use HTC or MC as zigbee server). An addition of ZAP(Zigbee Access Point) help extend the radio signal of the closest NODES.
You can run both zigbee server and zap in one HC controller but not hc1000
If you want to upgrade zigbee into zigbee pro devices, you need an additional zap in the system or a USB upgrade. In your case you should be fine to upgrade because you have hc-200 running as ZAP
You can use HTC or MC as ZAP but not HC-1000 because it does not have zigbee radio.
I would use HC-300 as zigbee server, and HC-200 as ZAP in your case.
someone can chime in if I missed anything.

assuming both controllers are also streaming audio?

Hc300: director , Zserver, coordinator, dig audio
Hc200: Navigator, Dig audio

Hc300: Zserver, Navigator
Hc200: coordinator, Navigator
Is there any reason I would want the zserver, and zap coordinator swapped with each other? (i.e. so that hc300 runs coordinator, and hc200 runs zserver?)

Coordinator requires a zigbee radio. ZServer can run on the 1000 though.
Put COORDINATOR on the HC1000.

It's zserver - that was the big benefit of being able to put the zserver process on the HC1000 a couple releases back, as previously it was required to run on the same controller as zigbee server.
Well. put the big resource hog that doesn't require the zigbee radio on the HC1000. Everyone calls it something different anyways. It's one of those tow processes you listed, but the name varies depending on who you talk to.

this is how i set it up:
Joe, can you summarize what goes on what in a single post here- I'm confused and in a tough spot currently with severe mesh problems- thanks.
Hc1000: Zserver, director
Hc300: Navigator, zap coordinator (multiple)
Hc200: Navigator, zap coordinator (multiple)
looks solid for now
