Anyone here bought any of the Trust Smart Home range of home automation products from Bunnings? I can't find any technical info on how it works or if it can integrate with other hubs or products. They are all reasonably priced and there's a wide range of products. I have a Home Assistant server so would want anything I buy to integrate with that.

I think it is mostly zigbee based .. doing the same homework as you and they don't make it easy! :-)

 

Still doing my reading!

I looked at it, the Trust stuff overseas has a range of zigbee stuff but the lot at Bunnings does not appear to be it.

When I visited a specialist lighting retailer they gave me a booklet with the Trust Smart Home gear in it. Quite a lot more comprehensive than the fold out pamphlet from Bunnings. I eventually managed to find more of the equipment, particularly the switches, tucked away in a dark corner of the Bunnings website.
I was kind of put off this gear by a discussion on the Z Wave thread, mainly due to a lack of security and difficulty in configuration. Pricing of the components didn't appear to be hugely cheaper than Z Wave and I wonder about the interoperability with other smarthome componentry.
I agree, they don't make it easy to find technical info about their products.
