I'm playing around with various things connected to each other using XBee Zigbee modules.  Right now, Zigbee isn't supported, so I was contemplating building a simple gateway controller, through which I can connect to the things.  Is that something that is supported?  I couldn't see anything obvious in git to use as a starting point. 

An example thing would be a garage door controller which also holds the state of the door.  I have 3 of these, so I think I would need some kind of IP to Zigbee gateway to control them from the #steward - it would think it's talking to IP devices, but really would be talking to Zigbee things.

Any suggestions of starting points?

take a look at the greenwave gw110 (a.k.a. nuon emanager). it's a z-wave and zigbee ip gateway kind of like the greenwave gop I'm trying to figure out how to hack in to it. but I'm kind of new to this.

How do you rename a device?  I have a Z-stick and a GE Z-wave power outlet. The #steward had no problem finding them, but I'd like to override the name (device/3) that is chose.

Also, for these binary devices wouldn't it be better when you click "turn on" in the d3 UI for it just to turn on, rather than display a popup to turn on?

Nice work overall.  Now I just need to learn node.js to figure out how I can get to grips with everything!

+Daniel O'Connor I'm just going to reflash my installation tonight and use Chrome to rename my device - far easier than messing with all this node.js stuff that doesn't seem to work!

The Steward  - 
 
Just fired up release 1.5. I only have a small test system - 1 pi, a Z-stick A2 and a GE Z-wave socket.  It worked fine with 1.4.  On 1.5, when I try to turn on the socket, I get

unknown api: /api/v1/device/perform/3

Any ideas?

Not immediately sure what's going on. Could you open a ticket on the issue tracker, https://github.com/thethingsystem/steward/issues, with some more details?
