The FIBARO devices provide a comprehensive ecosystem adapted to the rooms function and needs of the household members.
The access to your home and your data are protected at the highest level - through the WAF and Anti-DDoS systems, encrypted communication using the TLS protocol and passwords using bcrypt.
The FIBARO system is simple to install and use. The plug & play devices are ready for use immediately after unpacking and short configuration, the others are non-invasive during installation.
The Home Center 2 controller delivers even greater integration of home multimedia with your Z-Wave System. Manage your TV, Home Cinema, Hi-Fi and others - right from the Fibaro app. Using Fibaro, you don’t need any remote other than your smart phone or tablet. All of these devices can be set to work automatically - for instance, you arrive home and your TV switches to the 6 o’clock news as you walk through the door.
Thanks to the built in power management functionality, using Fibaro Home Center 2 you can monitor the current energy consumption and the power consumption history while being able to spot the devices consuming the most of it. Detailed statistics are presented as clear charts, helping you compare numbers and estimate upcoming bills.
Using Fibaro Home Center 2 you can start heating and set your favourite temperature while you are still at the office. You can easily program the climate panel and heat your home to the right temperature on each day of the week, in defined hours. Set the heating to temperature that will make you get out of bed easily. For nights, choose the temperature in which you sleep well and wake up relaxed. Climate Panel will give you the comfort you haven’t experienced before.
Your home always knows where you and your family members are thanks to geo localization. When you leave home, the system turns off unneeded devices, arms the alarm system and simulates your presence to discourage thieves from breaking in. While calculating your return route, the system will adjust temperature and run pre-programmed scenes.
LUA is a programming (scripting) language and is commonly used in home automation controllers to enable users to create more complex control scenes than supported by the controller's Scene editor. The HC2's scene editor enables you to use a graphical-based editor or a LUA-based editor, whereas the HCL only supports a graphical editor. We feel this is the most important difference between the two controllers, but mostly applicable to advanced users. Also note the absence of VOIP in HCL means it will not be compatible with some intercom systems.
