Fibaro Z-Wave Home Center 2

Fibaro

Fibaro started with producing Z-Wave devices – switched, dimmers, sensors etc. But now it came to the point to give its folks a whole solution including fully loaded Z-Wave controller – Home Center 2. It looks good at the first glass. Based on a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom and Debian OS, it can cover all consumer’s needs in the home automation area. The HC2 provides web interface to setup and manage the system. So, you can use any PC/Laptop/Tablet to work with it. Additionally Fibaro offers special application for iOS devices (no Android yet unfortunately).

User interface is simple and intuitive. Interesting that system allow to add not just real devices but virtual as well. Using that possibility consumer may add integration with some external TCP/IP based sub-system which might be useful. The HC2 supports scenes, of course, and their setup is not complicated. Consumers should enjoy graphical builder of conditions with various logical operands.

The Fibaro Z-Wave Home Center 2 looks interesting and promised. But it’d be nice to see comparison with the most popular and probably the best Z-Wave controller at that time MiCasa Verde Vera/VeraLite.

      You wasted time typing this? No launch date info, no pricing info, absolutely nothing of value. You basically copied what has been on their web site for many months… another example of how anyone can have a useless blog.

    Well, sorry to disappoint you, man. That article was interesting personally for me. Doesn’t matter when it was published on the AutmatedHome. Anyway, next time will try to be more informative.
