Where to buy supported sensors in Europe and/or France?
« on: January 20, 2015, 12:15:29 pm »
I've been looking around for websites in Europe that are selling ZigBee/Z-Wave devices that also have decent prices.

Do any forum members in Europe have recommendations for a good website?

amazon.fr has an okay selection, but seems to be expensive.

I am specifically looking for a flood sensor that is supported by A+.

Thanks

We'll be offering the sensors that we offered our backers on Amazon at some point in the near future. Hopefully for Europe it'll be at the same time as the Almond+ goes on sale in Europe.

I live in Europe and also finding that is hard to look for "cheap" Zwave or ZigBee sensors.
Could you tell me where to get cheap blind shutter micromodules to insert behind the normal shutter switch.
I'm looking for one unit to test, and if they work OK I'll order 5 more.
After that will start doing some testing with the rules and temperature/light sensors.
will connect multiple light sensors outside the house, and when I go to a room and press the light switch, if the system thinks there is enough outside light, it wont lit the bulb but instead open the blind...
Possibilities are endless if we find the proper modules at a reasonable price!

Thanks for all the help!

Cheers!

I don't think there are any cheap ones of those and we're still working on support for them to start with.

Also keep in mind that there are at least two kinds here, AC and DC powered, so make sure that you get the right kind so it works with whatever motor(s) you're going to connect it to.

The companies I know of that makes these things are Fibaro (support is coming, not cheap), Philio (we'll most likely be supporting this one too), TKB Control (similar to Philio), Qubino (new Z-Wave guys, not cheap, but very small and looks like quality stuff) and Vision (DC only, not sure about support as yet).
There's also a company called MotionCo, but they do the whole things, although they're going to launch a motor only unit with integrated Z-Wave.
None of these are going to be cheap though  :-\

I don't think we've implemented support for light sensors in the rules as yet, but it should be there in the future.

My blinds are AC.

Gonna try today a Fibaro 222 in the store (they let me take the almond with me for a try).
Or isnt worth it because its not supported yet not even in 69cb?

Thanks!

I tried the fibaro shutter module v2 and the qubino and none of them are recognized by the almond+ with 69cb firmware.
Will the next firmware support it?

I highly doubt the next firmware will do it as it's due next week, but hopefully the one after that.

Lets hope that the firmware after version 70 supports the Fibaro shutter modules!
Some people who works at a house automation company told me they are the best in the market!

Thx!

I don't think so, since as far as I'm aware, that hasn't been finished yet as we need to create UI's for it.

Refresh of my question, this time I am looking for I've been looking around for websites in Europe that are selling ZigBee/Z-Wave devices that are compatible with the Almond+.

Do any forum members in Europe have recommendations for a good website?

amazon.fr has an selection of Z-Wave devices, but the one I ordered was Z-Wave Plus, which is not compatible with the Almond+.

I am specifically looking for a flood sensor, motion/temperature sensor, and smart switch with a euro socket.

Z-wave Plus is backwards compatible so if it's not working, it just means the A+ firmware doesn't support it yet.

The plan is to enable support for Z-Wave Plus via a USB dongle. That said, it's not that simple, as we have to certify the Almond+ for Z-Wave Plus as well, or we can't claim Z-Wave Plus support.
