I have heard that it is possible to "associate" two z-wave devices so they will communicate with each other directly and not require the z-wave controller to be the go-between (thereby introducing delay and the necessity that the controller be operating for the two z-wave devices to work together). I have the IQ Panel and want to have 2 switches (an Evolve LSM-15 and an LTM-5) associated so they make a 3-way switch for controlling a light. I have read that some controllers can be used to do this, but they require the assistance of the Aeon Labs Minimote to do the actual association.
So my questions are (a) Does the IQ Panel support z-wave association? (b) If so, how is this done and must I purchase a Minimote to do it?
