iTecHome. Is a new UK company offering a Z wave based system which includes an all-in-one replacement light switch. It doesn’t require a neutral, but you do have to also install their optional bypass to make it work, very similar to the Fibaro micro except this is an all in one that includes the wall switch as well. The switch is fairly expensive at 59 pounds, but given that it’s on all in one, that might be OK.
It was mentioned in another forum thread, but I haven’t been able to find any professional reviews of it.
Anybody have any experience with this?
LightwaveRF offers an all-in-one switch which does not require a neutral, but it uses its own proprietary frequency and you have to use IFTTT or a “man in the middle“ server“ to get it to work with smartthings.
The iTecHome line is just a Z wave device which would connect directly to the SmartThings UK frequency hub. (Not available for other regions.)
Also, I can’t find any Z wave certifications for this company, so I’m guessing these are rebranded OEM products.
If anyone actually has one, can you look at the information on the back and get us a picture of that so we can figure out who the manufacturer is.
