I have a question relating to how the Logitech keyboards and mice work when you have lots of users in an office environment all have wireless keyboards and mice and you want to pair a keyboard and mouse to one PC via a single Unifying connector.
Before everyone goes nuts, the question is related to how I can pair say the mouse to the PC which is already paired to the keyboard, when my colleague sitting beside me is using her successfully paired wireless keyboard and mouse, without me ending up pairing with her PC instead of mine, ie. how do I control which PC the mouse pairs with.
I am thinking I will have 20 sets of these keyboards and mice initially, but am expecting over 450 when I'm finished.
The only thing I can think of that would overcome this is that the pairing initiation starts with the PC software and then when you turn the mouse off then on, it automatically sync's/pairs with the PC which is waiting for the reset of the mouse.
Is this correct? Am I worrying over nothing?
I hope the above makes sense?

I can't tell you how many devices will work in a single environment, but it might help to explain that the pairing process with unifying devices locks the hardware to the receiver. When you have done that, the hardware cannot talk to other receivers. Indeed, you have to jump through various hoops to make this happen. You have to un-pair the devices from its original receiver.
If we knew how this locking process worked – is it by wavelength (unlikely) or some sort of encryption? – we would be in a better position to know what would happen in the circumstances you describe.
If you are planning that big an order, talk to Logitech. They need your money!
