About the Home Center Hardware
Based on the Linux operating system, the Home Center Lite runs a Linux web server and MySQL database housed in a brushed aluminum case. It features a fast, efficient Cortex A8 720MHz processor and large memory (1GB RAM, 2GB SLC hard drive) to ensure quick and reliable communication among all of your Z-Wave devices. The system also provides a recovery disc for easy system backups and recoveries. The disc is readily accessible anytime at the back of the unit, hidden behind the removable back panel. Because each disc is unique to each individual Home Center unit, unauthorized access is not a risk.
Installation & Setup Details
The Home Center Lite is fairly simple to set up. The unit plugs into a power outlet with the included adapter, connects to your Internet router/modem/switch with the included Ethernet cable, and talks to your Z-Wave devices through its included antenna.
Once the unit is physically set up, you will need to log onto a computer that is connected to the same network and download the free "FIBARO Finder Application", available through the FIBARO website. This simple software will allow you to access the unit's control panel through your computer and start building out your Z-Wave system.
Amazon Alexa Voice Control
The FIBARO Home Center Lite works with any Amazon Alexa device to gain voice control of your Z-Wave compatible devices. Just make sure to add the FIBARO Smart Home Skill to your Alexa account, and you'll be able to use your voice to control the smart home devices connected to your Home Center Lite. Software version 4.112 or higher is required.
