All Z-Wave networks start with a Z-Wave hub. A Z-Wave hub will sometimes be referred to as a Z-Wave controller. A hub with several radios is commonly called a gateway. No matter what the name, the purpose of the hub is to act as a central point for your Z-Wave devices. This allows you to control (or receive information from) your smart home from your home (with local control) as well as anywhere you can get to the internet. Z-Wave is exceptionally modular, so you can keep the costs down as you build your automation network.
When shopping for a controller, know what your long term goals are. Ask us for guidance on determining the correct hub for those goals. Buying a hub that won’t work with Amazon Echo will be a poor choice if one of your goals is to control lights from Alexa. If cameras are a big draw, you’re not going to be happy if your shiny gateway won’t run multiple cameras.
Let us use our 12+ years of experience to get you the correct Z-Wave controller. Ask us a question via Ask An Expert.
