Have you been looking at Home Automation solutions and found that Clipsal's CBUS system is too restrictive and expensive, and DALI, while open-sourced, is designed for large lighting solutions and has a limited number of home automation cabilbities?
The alternative is here.
New Zealand and Australia are starting to benefit from the popular European home automation system - Z-Wave.
There are a wide range of products in Europe containing Z-Wave technology. These products have been developed and certificated by reputable manufacturers, including Fibaro, Vero, ADT, Yale Locks, and Zipato (to name a few). They can be integrated to your Z-Wave Smart Home system quickly and easily.
In Europe, there are approximately 375 companies offering over 1500 products now available for Z-Wave integration. A growing number of these products are increasingly available for the New Zealand and Australian markets. Not only simple to include in a new build or renovation, Z-Wave products can be retrofitted easily to existing houses and most often do not require additional wiring.
Feel free to contact us at 237 Solutions for a free discussion on your options and requirements for Home Automation.
The Z-Wave difference is that you can start small. If you just need to control the lights, setting night schedules or remotely activiting them when you're away from home?
Z-Wave products can easily be installed in your existing environment. Later, if you want to control other parts of your home, integrate to security systems or cameras, there are Z-Wave products that can be added to your existing backbone as and when you identify the need for them.
237 Solutions will help you design your requirements and if necessary assist you in finding Z-Wave products to support your design. We are also happy to talk to your architect, designer or electrician if they have questions about this technology.
Contact us to start simplifying home automation for you.
237 Solutions are currently investigating sourcing Z-Wave products into New Zealand.
Keep checking back to see what products we are able to provide to the New Zealand and Australian market.
