We are working on a large estate with various different properties within the grounds. Each guest house has/will have a Lutron QS system, as does the main house. These are separate systems with their own processors etc.
Very little interaction is needed between the properties (there is some Crestron stuff talking across the entire estate). However, I need to have a keypad in one of the guest houses control some exterior lighting that is part of the main house system.
Just checking there is not an easier way to have one QS system talk to another than creating a '3rd party' device in each system (with the IP address of the destination processor and a random port number) and then send a command from the guest house processor ("TURNONLIGHTS") and have the main house processor react to that. Both houses are part of the same network (though on separate VLANs, so there would have to be a hole punched for the relevant port number).
Anyone done this and has it been stable? I can't see why it shouldn't work?
Obviously, I have Crestron available if needed, but I really want to keep this between the 2 Lutron systems ideally.
