I am going to go with an Aeon Labs Z-Stick as my controller and purchase various compatible Aeon Labs and Fibaro sensors and plugs etc. (i.e. http://www.smartthingsnz.co.nz/store/). With the understanding that I need to get these "locally" so that they are legally compliant with AU/NZ frequencies etc. - that is the easy part.
What I really want to do is use CastleOS (https://castleos.com/home.aspx) to drive the home automation system. In my perhaps premature excitement, I have already purchased two Kinect V1 sensors and power supply adapters for this purpose.
Unfortunately timely responses from CastleOS with respect to technical (or any) queries are slow to come so I am reaching out here for advice.
Before I go and purchase the Z-Stick and accessories, has anyone in NZ successfully managed to get an AU/NZ region Aeon Labs Z-Stick Gen5 controller and accessories working with CastleOS (with or without Kinect (voice) support) or failing that, with any other controller?
