Actuators

A Smart Home network consist of Controllers, Sensor and Actors. Controllers manage the network as such but also control other devices.  Actuators do the work and switch, dim and move. Z-Wave.Me actuators come into different flavors: 

Flush Mountables

Flush Mountables are devices that fit into a wall box (pattress box). They can be used stand-alone or with a finished compatible to a wall switch design  for local operation.   

  • The Switch Insert switches any load up to 2200 W in a 3-wire system. It can be operated remotely or using local rockers.
  • The Dimmer Insert dims resistive and inductive loads up to 400 W in a 2-wire system. It can be operated remotely or using local rockers.
  • The Motor Control Insert operates motor controls for shades or blinds with a load up to 2 * 1700 W in a 3-wire system. It can be operated remotely or using local rockers.
  • The Double Switch Insert switches two attached loads up to 1700 W each in a 3-wire system. The loads can be operated remotely or using local rockers with single and double click.

Smart Plugs

Smart Plugs are plugged into a standard Schuko or French Style 230 V outlet and allow to operate a load connected to the smart plug using a cable plug. This allows easy installation and gives flexibility where and when to use the device.

  • The Smart Plug Switch allows switching of any pluggable load up to 3500 W 
  • The Smart Plug Outdoor Switch allows switching of any pluggable load up to 3500 W but is rated IP 44 for use outdoor or in wet environments. 

Z-Uno

Z-Uno is the first and only easy to use developer board that allows you to create your own Z-Wave device without deep knowledge of Z-Wave protocol or programming. Z-Uno is a mix of Z-Wave home automation radio protocol power and Arduino simplicity. Being inspired by Arduino project Z-Uno inherits all concepts of easy-to-use hardware and software solutions, keeping maximum flexibility.

Z-Uno is a fully DIY product. It is made for those who are limited by existing choice of Z-Wave products and wants to extend their smart homes with more sensors and actuators: connect LEDs, buttons, switches, motors or any low voltage sensor including most of Arduino compatible sensors.

Z-Uno programming is done by writing sketch in simplified C language and loaded into Z-Uno using Arduino IDE. Many examples and comprehensive tutorials will help you to make your own project.

See Z-Uno site for more information.
