Since it’s already been certified by FCC I think it could be a good idea to give the technical specifications for the hub and the certified things, along with a note of what should be the requisites for other devices to work with. It would be great to know, for example the frequency(s) it works with, the hub range, the power supply input, etc.
woah how have I not seen this? Sorry about that Carlos. Let me give you what I got off the top of my head.
ZigBee is 2.4 GHz all of our internally produced “Things” are ZigBee. Z-Wave is 908.4 MHz. Power is USB 5V. Range is about 100-150 feet. I’ve seen line-of-site on a clear day get up to 200.
ZigBee prerequisites are the device must be ZigBee HA (Home Automation) compatible. Z-Wave stuff is mostly compatible. They have a proprietary stack that almost all Z-Wave devices use.
For my curiosity, could you tell me something about the hardware in the Hub (CPU or RAM) ?
Microcontroller: Microchip PIC32 MX695F512H (512 KB Flash, 128 KB RAM)
ZigBee: CEL MeshConnect ZICM357SP2-1
