Let me start by admitting upfront that I don't know the first thing about home automation. Having said that, I would like to figure out a way to use one of the buttons on the Car2U system in my 2012 Ford F-150 to toggle on/off an exterior floodlight in my driveway.
Looking at the Lear Car2U site gives very little information, but references a device called a Wireless Gateway Module Part #WDHA-12L to presumably translate the Car2U signal into something that can be used on a Z-Wave system.
A google search for that part number yields references to the Wayne-Dalton garage door company, but their web site doesn't seem to mention anything about wireless gateway components.
Z-Wave's web site mentions the gateway as well, but doesn't provide a lot of detail. And the manufacturer's link they provide just goes back to the main Wayne-Dalton home page.
Let's assume for a second that I am able to get my hands on this gateway device -- what then? I suppose I need some base kit from Z-Wave as well as a Z-Wave component to activate the light, is that correct?
Sorry this is vague, I really am a newbie at this.
Thanks in advance,
