hi Dean

from briefly looking at CQS, it is a windows-based appliance, used as a central server to control smart lights, outlets etc? please correct me if i am wrong

the loxone miniserver, as well as being a central control point, has digital relays onboard. the advantage of this is that any dumb component can be controlled - a regular light bulb fitting, a regular power outlet, cheap solenoids etc

edit: its hard to discuss these things without coming across as going on an offensive - im simply presenting loxones case, as that is the system that made the most sense to me, and obviously people will see advantages in using CQ in their setup

Oh, no one thinks you are going on an offensive or anything. With a system like CQC , if you want that sort of stuff, you pair it with something like an Elk, Omni, Lutron, etc... system, which provides the low level hardware (and in some cases security) functions, and you layer CQC on top of it for all of the stuff that those low level systems can't really do. And of course you get to pick the hardware separate from the software, which we would put forward as an advantage, but someone else might argue otherwise, I dunno.
