See this doc I found on this http://z-wave-assets.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/docs/706/B07D7Q6CHB_-_Ring_Base_Station_-_Manual.pdf?1532938148 Look under "Adding Base station to a Z-Wave Network". That's interesting. I'll have to experiment. I wonder if I can add my Hubitat as a generic Z-Wave device and it will join as a secondary. Thank you!

I just installed my Ring alarm system (have been using the doorbell for some time) and am quite happy with its ease of use and feature set in general, but I was hoping that its use of Z-Wave would mean that I coiuld integrate it with my existing Z-Wave home automation system. It doesn't currently appear that I can add another Z-Wave controller (Hubitat, in my case, though I have ISY as well) as a secondary. This is a very common Z-Wave feature and is a glaring omission. Simple Commands seems useful, but (1) I can't figure out what the business model is or whether they'll be around in a year (and the Ring authentication dialog has me submitting to a non-Ring site, which implies that OATH may not be used), and (2) it requires an internet connection. My preferred solutions do not. TLDR: Let me add another Z-Wave controller/hub as secondary, please? I'd prefer not to maintain two separate Z-Wave networks in my house.
