Fibaro Dimmer 2 - Are associations possible with Z-Wave devices from a different manufacturer?





my question is quite general, by itself: Are associations between Z-Wave devices from different manufacturers possible, and if yes, it it a general feature, or does it work only in special cases? Is it enough that the target device is able to react to the command class frame sent by Fibaro? Even when the target device itself uses the Z-Wave association groups differently (different group numbers for the same action, different command class frame / arguments)?

The background for it is following: I have a dimmer with inputs S1, S2 connected to a physical momentary switches but with no physical load on S2. I would like to control/sync a different dimmer across the room upon pressing S2, so that I don't have to put cables around the room. Short press to turn on/off, long press to modify dim level, in the usual manner for physically connected dimmable loads.

I found here that I could use 4th and 5th association groups to whom BASIC and MULTILEVEL SWITCH command class frames are sent. The only problem is, that the target dimmable light source is a CCT LED strip and Fibaro RGBW Controller 2 does not support CCT, so I would have to use a dimmer from a different manufacturer. (Slight delay or slightly imperfect behavior would be OK, but it has to work somehow - without modification of the color temperature of course).

An alternative solution would be to use the Fibaro RGBW Controller 2 and somehow connect the CW, WW wires to the RGBW input pins, but I guess it would be a problem to have a possibility to reasonably set color temperature in the application.
