It starts here...
Usually the most expensive part of any smart home is its gateway controller; that key hub that binds your smart devices together to control and automate them. With Aeotec’s Z-Stick (Gen5) your gateway is no longer expensive.
Z-Stick lets you build your own gateway. A gateway that is locally hosted, secure and "cloud" free. One that can support up to 230+ Z-Wave devices as you gradually grow your new smart home over time.
Z-Stick Gen5.Your gateway to building your own Z-Wave gateway.
Pick your platform.Z-Stick 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 use it with a PC, HTPC or laptop, with Mac, Linux or Windows, single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi and even select NAS systems.

Choose your software.
Once you’ve decided which platform to use Z-Stick with, it’s time to select the software you want to use to power your gateway and your smart home.
Works with open source software.
Ever since the communication code of Z-Wave was made public by its creators, open source home automation software has come a long way. Z-Stick can be used with these (free) open source platforms to power your Z-Wave smart home.
Works with pro software.
If you’d rather build your home with pro software, Z-Stick works with the following platforms on either Mac or Windows.
Affordable.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.
Dependable.Z-Stick (Gen5) is about dependability. You can depend on your smart home not going offline when cloud hosting does. And you can depend on your Z-Stick not going offline at all. With its inbuilt 100 mAh rechargeable lithium battery, Z-Stick can continue to work for up to 15 days even when your power is out.

Value Quality PerformanceNigel Purdeyon 26/07/2018Excellent support from Smarthome on a recent purchase when I had to swap controllers due to issues. Can't recommend this stick highly enough. Paired with OpenHAB it's working perfectly.
Value Quality PerformanceSteven Andersonon 17/02/2018Very impressed with how easy it was to set up with HassIO. Just starting to look at home automation and this seems to have been a very positive start. Very fast delivery too.
