Zipato ZipaMicro Z-Wave Controller
Smart Micro Z-Wave Controller
Control, monitor, and automate your home with the Zipato ZipaMicro Z-Wave Controller (U.S.). As the smallest controller in Zipato's line of Z-Wave controllers, the ZipaMicro will allow you to control all of your Z-Wave and IP smart devices through a web browser or via the Zipato mobile app using your smartphone (Android or iOS).
The ZipaMicro is the miniaturized version of Zipato's premier Z-Wave controller, the ZipaBox. Just like the ZipaBox, the ZipaMicro runs on the Zipato Server local software and can connect to numerous smart devices. However, unlike the ZipaBox, the ZipaMicro is not expandable, but it does have much stronger processing power to support faster, more robust computing. The ZipaMicro is also compatible with the ZipaBox as well as Zipato's ZipaTile.

How It Works
The Zipato ZipaMicro receives programming information from the Zipato web portal through your existing Internet router, and uses wireless technologies, such as Z-Wave or Wi-Fi, to communicate with other devices. Once programming is sent from the cloud to the ZipaMicro, settings are stored locally, so an Internet connection is not required to control connected devices.
Zipato Web Portal & Smartphone App
The Zipato ZipaMicro includes free access to the Zipato web portal, where you will log in online to configure your devices, monitor your home's security, and review energy consumption of metered devices. You'll also be able to set up multiple users with different access rights, review home event history, set up email and text alerts, and customize your system by adding devices.
The web portal can be accessed through any web browser, as well as a free smartphone app. The app is available to download for Apple and Android mobile devices, providing convenient remote control for your home.
DIY Customization with Zipato Rule Creator
Through the web portal, you can access the Zipato Rule Creator, an online intuitive graphical programming tool that lets you add devices or change settings whenever you want from anywhere in the world. Just log into your account to make changes. No software installation or programming skills are required!
The Zipato Rule Creator allows you to create "rules" for your connected devices. Rules trigger events when other events occur. You can easily develop rules yourself with the Rule Creator's comprehensive library of drag and drop micro blocks (control functions), which can be mixed, matched and stacked to create simple or complex control sequences. Events can be triggered by:
- Status change of any device
- Absolute time
- Sunrise/sunset (with offset)
- By email received
- Security panel events
- By matched infrared codes
- Recurring at regular second/minute intervals
- Event actions
Optional Monitoring Service
As a free service from Zipato, you can receive automatic system monitoring and alerts from the Zipato Home Monitoring Servers. Alerts can be customized with the Zipato Rule Creator.
Setup is easy. Just connect your ZipaMicro to your Internet router using an Ethernet cable (included). Plug the power adapter to an outlet and attach the power connector to the back of the ZipaMicro. Then go to my.zipato.com to register and finish setting up your ZipaMicro by following the on-screen instructions.
