Choosing a LightwaveRF Controller

Home Automation - Choosing a LightwaveRF Controller - Vesternet

Choosing the controller for a LightwaveRF system is relatively easy. It is based on whether you want to run a pure, simple LightwaveRF system or if you would also like to control other home automation technologies such as Z-Wave.

Pure LightwaveRF

If you are planning to use just LightwaveRF devices in your system, then the controller solution is simple - the LightwaveRF Link.

  • LightwaveRF Link
    The LightwaveRF Link connects to your Wi-Fi router allowing you to control your LightwaveRF system from your smartphone, tablet or computer. It also gives you remote access so that you can control devices even if you are away from home.

The LightwaveRF Link supports all LightwaveRF devices - both the 433MHz lighting and sockets and the new heating products that are based on 868MHz. If you are planning to just use LightwaveRF products, then the Link is the obvious choice. It is easy to configure, easy to use and gives you full control of all the devices from your smartphone or tablet.

Hybrid System - LightwaveRF with Z-Wave

If you want to get the best of both worlds, then using a Z-Wave controller as the central hub of your home automation system may make more sense. In this case we would suggest:

  • VERA Edge Controller
    Low cost, very capable Z-Wave controller with a basic User Interface (UI).
  • RFXtrx433E Adapter
    The RFXtrx433E (RFX) plugs into the VERA's USB socket and enables it to communicate with 433MHz-based devices, including LightwaveRF. As VERA is a native Z-Wave controller it will also communicate and control all of the Z-Wave devices in the system. Note - RFX only support 433MHz LightwaveRF products, it cannot be used with LightwaveRF heating products or the LightwaveRF Energy monitor as they use 868MHz.

Using the Z-Wave controller allows you to do more sophisticated things than is possible in the LightwaveRF Link, more information is available in this separate guide - Using a Hybrid Z-Wave - LightwaveRF System
