More details here: http://www.fibaro.com/nz/the-fibaro-system/home-center-lite

 

I installed this at my parents place but have just replaced it with an openHAB system. 18 months old and will factory reset it ready for whoever buys it. Anyone wanting this will most likely know what it can do, but in essence it is a self-contained Z-Wave controller with rules engine and web server/UI built in.

 

Asking price is $450, including shipping anywhere in NZ. They retail for $750.

 

Cheers,

 

Ben

Do you know if this will integrate with Philips hue and kodi. I know there are addon's available but are some of them not available because of lua not being available on it?

I am not sure sorry. In fact I think the Lite is missing the LUA stuff, so probably not.

Yea that's what I meant, I've had a quick google but can't see if the addons are in Lua or if they are are coded differently

Not that is going to help me sell this, but if you want to integrate things like Hue and Kodi with Z-Wave devices you should look into either openHAB or HomeAssistant with an AeonLabs USB Z-Stick. A bit more tinkering involved but so much more flexibility and integration with other devices etc.

the only thing with openhab was it looks a bit daunting getting it setup, isint a lot of it putting code into text files?

If you start with OH2 (which is in release candidate now so getting pretty stable) the configuration is much more user-friendly. But yes, in general there is a learning curve. Well worth IMO once you get the hang of it, but YMMV.

Ok thanks, do you know of any good guides to setting it up with a rpi? Sorry I know it's a little off topic.

If you look in the openHAB WIKI (Google it) there are some very good guides and tutorials in there.

Last price drop before putting on TradeMe - $350 incl. delivery anywhere in NZ. That is under half price!
