Product description


WirenBoard 7 is a modular programmable controller for automation of apartments, houses and offices. The controller can work with wired and wireless sensors and actuators. Support for the Z-Wave™ and Zigbee wireless home automation protocols is provided by a special expansion board and Z-Way software by the Z-Wave.Me. The controller has passed Z-Wave certification, which guarantees compatibility with all certified Z-Wave devices.

The main advantages of the controller:

The WirenBoard 7 controller contains the 7th generation Z-Wave chip, which provides the following modern features:

The WirenBoard 7 also contains an EFR32MG21 chip, which provides communication with Zigbee and Thread.

What is Z-Wave™ and Long Range?

The Z-Wave protocol is an open, interoperable, sub-GHz wireless communications technology designed specifically for control, monitoring and status reading applications in residential and light commercial environments. Z-Wave has two operating modes Z-Wave MESH which is a very reliable sub-GHz MESH and Long Range (US only) which operates in a STAR topology offering over a mile range.

This product can be operated in any Z-Wave network with other Z-Wave certified devices from other manufacturers.

Note: To add in Z-Wave Long Range mode, you can only use Smart Start.

KNX, Z-Wave, Zigbee

The controller supports simultaneous operation in wireless Z-Wave and Zigbee networks and wired KNX network. This allows you to combine different automation technologies and benefit from a large number of different devices available for your smart home project.

KNX is designed for installation in large houses due to the reliability of the wired connection.

Z-Wave allows retrofit installations as well as extending KNX installations with high-quality and functional devices.

Zigbee opens the door to a broad range of inexpensive devices.
