The gateway is the heart of our wireless light control system. It allows for controlling your lights location-independent by smartphone, tablet and PC. Other ZigBee Home-Automation devices like the Philips Hue can be also integrated. It is operated by a intuitively usable web-based user interface (web app) without any in-depth programming skills.
Hardware is based on the Raspberry Pi Single Board Computer which becomes an Ethernet-ZigBee Gateway by attaching our RaspBee premium addon module. It is controlled by the deCONZ software installed on a SD-card containing a Raspbian Linux distribution.
Scope of delivery includes all necessary parts for getting started controlling your lights wirelessly. The device is shipped fully assembled and pre-configured. Due to a fully automatic update mechanism bugfixes as well as new software versions can be installed.
You integrate the gateway into your local infrastructure (i.e. WiFi router) by the included Ethernet cable. Control devices (Smartphone, Tablet, PC) are not part of delivery.
