- Update Method: Shared Network
With this method, Z-Flash connects to the existing external Z-Wave interface (SmartStick+, UZB stick, Z-Stick, Z-NET) and devices are updated using the primary Z-Wave network.
- Update Method: Secondary Controller
With this method, Z-Flash is added to your existing primary Z-Wave network as a Z-Wave secondary controller and devices are updated on the primary network.
