    Now adding Ubiquiti mFi outlets and power monitors / controllers. These work fantastic. Even have panel AMP draw reporting.

    Probably add some Z-Wave next. Mostly because it /should/ be seamless with ISY and Elk (and Homeseer?) and I'm curious to try. I wish ISY supported the Ubiquiti stuff. That would be awesome. But it's all controllable and monitor-capable through telnet; so if I figure out scripts in HS...

    I think King Fetty created a ubiqity mpower plugin. Perhaps he will make it into a full blown mFi plugin someday?

      Zigbee System Interface

      I have been trying to figure out what the hardware might look like if HomeSeer were to add support for ZigBee HA.

      Perhaps something like the Z-NET or A2Z-Link, possibly with both ZigBee HA and Z-Wave in one device?

      Or perhaps the ability to upgrade an existing Z-NET or A2Z-Link via a USB port?

      I really want to try ZigBee HA and have a need to access the protocols from my own VB.NET program. I would like to have a device that supports both protocols, but have not found anything that allowed access from my own program, but without cloud dependency.

      I trust HomeSeer and feel like I can buy their products with confidence. I guess I will have to start with Z-Wave and try ZigBee a little later, I hope maybe there will be a way to upgrade existing hardware.

      I used to use some X-10 (showing my age I guess) but now everything is pretty much hard wired. I am about to try an electronic door lock so will try wireless again.

      Any comments or advice would be much appreciated.

      Thanks!

        We're working on Zigbee HA support right now using a Zigbee USB dongle. We plan to add that dongle to our store for HS3 and HomeTroller users when it's fully "baked". Sorry, can't give a timeframe yet.

            A2Z-Link runs a version of HS3, so yes to that. A little too soon to know about the Z-NET. I suspect yes, but that's a little further down stream.

              Thank you for the information.

              Maybe the A2Z-Link would be eaiser to code against?

                Here my primary lighting is UPB switches.

                My tabletop touchscreens all have Zigbee chips in them. (along with Gb, WLAN, Bluetooth, SIM, DECT circuits).

                Playing with Zigbee with the Securifi stuff and it works fine.

                I also have an option to utilize Zigbee with my Leviton OmniPro II which is currently configured with UPB, X10 and Z-Wave. There are other users of the Leviton panel on Cocoontech that have gone to using Zigbee and are currently happy campers.

                The OPII plugin once configured for lighting will talk to whatever lighting protocols are configured to the panel.

                The Leviton Zigbee Omnistat line of thermostats also work with a serial connection.
