What is it?
A Z-Wave controller, or Z-Wave hub, is the heart of your smart home. It’s the central point for all your Z-Wave devices to talk to. Every Z-Wave network needs a controller. It connects Z-Wave devices to your Wi-Fi network, your phone and to you, and runs your home automation schemes, or Flows.
Because Homey has Z-Wave Plus integrated, Homey can act as a Z-Wave controller. You can use the Homey app to add, control, monitor and automate your Z-Wave devices, along with all other 50,000+ devices Homey supports.
Choosing the right controller is the most important part when automating your home: it determines what you can and cannot do, and what interfaces you’ll use for this. Compared to your whole smart home, the price difference between controllers is fairly small. That’s why we invested a little bit more into our controller, and made Homey the best there is.
Homey is not only a full-fledged Z-Wave Plus controller, but also contains Zigbee, 433MHz, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even Infrared. Paired with its friendly smartphone app, it’s the Z-Wave controller of choice for most people.
How does it work?
Homey holds a lot of powerful possibilities. With its Z-Wave Plus chipset, it is able to communicate directly with almost all Z-Wave products on the market. The Plus certification of Homey’s Z-Wave means that it connects to devices as securely as possible.
As Z-Wave controller, Homey is able to link with many popular Z-Wave brands like Fibaro, Qubino, Aeotec, TKB Home and Sensative, as well as lesser-known brands like Neo Coolcam or Heiman.
When pairing devices from these brands, Homey provides unique, device-specific pairing wizards as one of it’s user-friendly highlights. Z-Wave devices linked to Homey can be controlled anywhere in the world through the Homey app, and can be included in your Homey Flows for home automation.
Homey is not just a powerful Z-Wave controller. Homey also features Zigbee, 433MHz, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even Infrared. With these technologies, Homey is able to bridge the gap between Z-Wave and the rest of the Smart Home world. In total, Homey can connect to over 50,000 products from more than 1000 different brands through its open app platfom.
With Homey, it’s child’s play to make your Z-Wave motion sensor trigger a Zigbee light bulb. Or to combine lighting solutions from IKEA Tradfri and Fibaro for your perfect setup. Your TV, Sonos, Philips Hue and Somfy blinds can all work in sync when you press the Fibaro Button.
