I have two vacation/rental townhomes - one that I've had (unit#1) , and one that I just purchased and renovated (unit #2). These units share a common wall, though this common wall includes a cinder-block firewall.
I have had a veralite in Unit#1 that's been working great, and from the get-go of unit#2, had intended to establish a separate wifi-network and install a new Vers Edge, which I bought already.
But, I am at a cross-roads due to network complexity. I can still establish a separate wifi-ntwork in unit #2 (and the Vera Edge), but it is becoming more complicated.
Thinking about trying to use the single existing network, instead of adding a second.
While in the new unit #2, I get the wifi signal from the unit #1 network seemingly without issue. While I have not tried as of yet (these units are not close to home), I am thinking of trying to run all z-wave devices in unit 2 off the vera in unit 1. I am hoping that the vera signal will work as well as the wifi does between the units - maybe even more so considering nodes and the z-wave mesh.
My question is - does anyone have any experience here? Also, if I do (am able) run both units off of one Vera, would i be best to switch to the VeraEdge versus keepign the VerLite? There are not many devices - less than 20 between both units
