The Zipabox2 by Zipato is a very flexible smart home gateway. Factory-made, it does not have a wireless technology, but thanks to its modular expansion capability it can be extended with additional smart home technologies such as Z-Wave, ZigBee, EnOcean, 433MHz and KNX. All extension modules are available separately and can be connected to the Zipabox via snap-in connection. The Zipabox2 has an easy to use but powerful web-based user interface which allows to monitor all connected devices and automation rules, created with the ‘Zipato Rule Creator’. The intuitive graphical user interface allows to create own scenes and rules without programming skills.
The Zipato Z-Wave Extension Module connects the Zipato Zipabox2 with devices which work with Z-Wave technology. These devices can be combined with other technologies (e.g. KNX) into smart home automation rules within the smart home network using a Zipabox with different extension modules.
The KNX module allows the connection between the Zipato system and an KNX installation.
After connecting the module to an KNX network, ZipaBox enables their users to control their KNX devices from a remote way. Likewise allows the control from inside a KNX network devices from other technologies.
Adds battery backup and USB for 3G data connection backup to ZipaBox. The Backup module is usually used in security applications and in all other cases when reliability is important. It provides redundant battery power for 24 hours as well as enables using 3G stick for data backup line from GSM operator.
ZigBee is a low-cost, low-power, wireless mesh network standard.
The low cost allows the technology to be widely deployed in wireless control and monitoring applications. Low power-usage allows longer life with smaller batteries.
Mesh networking provides high communication reliability and more extensive range. ZigBee expansion module allowes Zipabox to communicate with all ZigBee enabled devices and integrate them into one unified home automation network.
Since majority of smart energy meters supports ZigBee, Zipabox becomes even more interested for consumers, telcos and utilities to integrate smart metering applications within connected home.
Zipabox EnOcean expansion module extends your Zipabox Smart Home Controller with support for EnOcean energy harvesting devices. The module plugs into Zipabox expansion slot to support EnOcean wireless communication. EnOcean radio signals can be received from up to 100 feet away indoors. Another expansion module can be snapped onto the EnOcean Module.
Zipabox Serial expansion module enables Zipabox to easily interconnect with an existing security alarm system, such as DSC or PARADOX. Number of external systems supported by Zipato is increasing all the time, and Zipato is providing SDK to all the parties interested in supporting various protocols. It also includes USB port for connecting 3G USB stick for backup internet connection so your Zipabox never loses connection with the cloud.
433Mhz spectrum range is traditionaly being used by many simple and cost effective wireless devices.
Long range and high reliability makes those products as the perfect choice for the cost effective security and automation applications where two-way communication is not needed. However, there is a wide vairety of different protocols available on the market and making them work all together is impossible withou a sofisticated gateway device.
By using the 433MHz expansion module, Zipabox allowing you to, not just to connect vast majojrity of the popular protocols based on 433Mhz to work together, but also, to connect them all together to work within a same network with Z-wave, Zigbee and KNX devices.
Integrate wired security sensors and accessories into your Zipato control system by adding the Zipato Zipabox Security Module. The module snaps into a Zipato expansion slot to immediately add a variety of wired inputs. Another expansion module can be snapped onto the Security Module.
Monitor the energy consumption of up to four channels with the Zipato Zipabox Power Module. This add-on module snaps into a Zipato expansion slot. Once connected, the Power Module instantaneously measures voltage, current, and power values for each channel and sends real-time data to your Zipato web portal. Using this information, you can then create energy-saving rules in the Zipato Rule Creator.
To perform the measurement is necessary to use the current clamps ZWZIP_AMPCLAMP35(purchased separately).
Zipato Z-Wave Remote is a simple remote controller that can control your AV devices through Z-Wave-to-IR extender, and via basic set it can also ON/OFF switch 8 lighting groups, based on Z-Wave technology. When used with Zipato home automation controllers it can be part of any automation scenario created using Zipato Rule Creator. Accordingly it can be used to automatically trigger other Z-Wave devices when activated.
Zipato Micromodule Double Switch enables you to control in-wall switch or power outlet with Zipato home automation controllers, any Z-Wave remote or module’s built-in push button. This small, hidden Z-Wave module installs in the electrical box behind your switch/ outlet, and wires in between your switch/outlet and two connected loads.
Zipato Micromodule Motor Controller enables you to simultaneously control two 230V AC electric motors via Zipato home automation controllers or any other Z-Wave enabled network. Ability to feedback the shutter/blinds position enables you to not only control vertical directions of your shutters but also finely adjust them, e.g. 30% or 50%. Slim and compact design allows it to easily integrate into regular wall boxes.
Zipato Energy Meter monitors total electricity consumption of connected appliances and reports it to Zipato or any other Z-Wave enabled controller in real time. Small and compact size allows easy installation in majority of electricity distribution boxes. It supports two loads up to 6000W each (@ 120V).
Heavy-duty automated Valve Controller, that can fit variety of fluid management purposes. When used as a part of Zipato ecosystem, it can cut the water or gas supply when leak is detected. Additionally, using Zipato Rule Creator you can make it part of virtually limitless automation scenarios. Every Valve Controller can work as signal repeater, therefore all the devices form into cellular network and generate multi-routes. This product can be included and operated in any Z-Wave network with other Z-Wave certified devices from other manufacturers and/or other applications. All non-battery operated nodes within the network will act as repeaters regardless of vendor to increase reliability of the network.
Zipato Bulb 2 with dimmer makes home lighting more fun and comfortable. With Zipato Bulb 2, you can control color and intensity of home lights from the convenience of your smartphone, or other Z-Wave enabled controller. It has separate warm white, cold white and color LEDs. This allows you to create both colorful light environments and regular white lighting, which is easily customizable from an iOS or Android smartphone. Depending on the variant, bulb fits into regular E27 and is able to produce light intensity comparable to 60W incandescent bulb.
