Aeotec Z Wave USB Stick.

New-gen home automation doesn’t have to be expensive – with a few key devices you can create a smart home. Step by step. Room by room. At your own pace, in your own time, and within your own budget. Welcome to the Aeotec Z-stick Controller.

Usually the most expensive part of any smart home is its gateway; that key hub that binds all your connected devices together to control and automate them. With Aeotec’s Z-Stick Gen5 your gateway is no longer expensive.

Z-Stick Gen5 lets you build your own gateway. A gateway that is locally hosted. A gateway that is cloud free. One with the features and security your home need. And one that can communicate with over 230 Z-Wave devices as you gradually expand your smart home.

Pick your platform.

Z-Stick Gen5 is a Z-Wave Plus antenna that works with any platform.

It’s been designed to bring Z-Wave to every computer platform. You can therefore use it with a PC, HTPC or laptop, with Mac, Linux or Windows, with single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi, and even select NAS systems such as the Asus’ Asustor.

Using a combination of such platforms and Z-Stick Gen5 immediately gives you 2 big advantages over a lot of standard gateways.

Pick your software.

Once you’ve decided which platform to use Z-Stick Gen5 with, it’s time to select the software you want to use to power your gateway and your smart home.

Depend on Z-Wave.

Z-Wave is huge. There are over 2,100 different devices available including a huge range of control and automation devices made by Aeotec. And Z-Stick Gen5 doesn’t just offer Z-Wave, it offers the best version of it.

Aeotec Z-Stick Controller Gen5 is powered by Z-Wave Plus and Aeotec’s Gen5 stack. Contact Netsecure Automation today to find out how we can power your home using Z Wave technology.
