The Fibaro Home Center 2 is a complete home automation gateway. It communicates with sensors and devices located throughout your home using Z-Wave wireless communications. It also supports external communication using an existing broadband connection (DSL or Cable).

It offers an array of advanced features, but like all Fibaro products, it is easy to install and use.

The Home Center 2 allows you to easily manage your home automation network, whether you are at home, in the office or using a mobile phone.

 

Fibaro Home Center Interface

 

Elegant and Modern

The Home Centre 2 is expertly designed - in and out.

Its sleek aluminium case ensures that HC2 won’t look out of place no matter where you install it.

Fast top-of-the-range hardware

Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor

The Home Center 2 is the fastest home gateway in the world. The Intel Atom processor is fast and low-power, which means the Home Center 2 delivers high-speed performance while being extremely power efficient.

1GB RAM, 2GB SLC Hard Drive

The combination of large memory and super fast processor mean that the Home Center 2 has blistering communication speeds with all devices on the network.

4GB MLC Back-Up Disc

All HC2 systems are back-up to the large capacity USB Flash drive. This completely protects each system from unauthorised access. This solution also means that if there is a system failure, it can be quickly 'recovered' to its last known 'good' state.

Simple installation

In order to install HC2, all you need to do is connect the power cord and Ethernet cable as shown here, It is really that simple.

Fibaro home center installation

Once setup is complete, you can access your new Home Center 2 through your home Wi-Fi network.

If there is an issue, troubleshoot by holding the reset button for a few seconds and access the HC2 control panel with the IP address 192.168.81.1

Linked devices offer new possibilities

Linking your devices together with Home Center 2 allows you to control multiple devices at once, making it easier to organise your scenes and keep the control panel clutter-free.

Advanced features

The Home Center's advanced features give you control of your entire home network and enable you to create 'scenarios' when particular things happen. For instance, when it rains, you can set the system to close all your windows and switch off any garden sprinklers.

Great product
Absolutely fantastic bit of kit. It's a little bit to wrap your head around at first, but Vesternet's support is fast and robust. They were brilliant through the initial learning curve. Once I got comfortable with the software, it's very straight forward. The box looks very nice, very high quality, and a breeze to get going. Love this system, worth every penny!

Great little controller
Debated for quite a while on which Z-Wave controller to purchase, and am really glad I chose the Fibaro unit. Interface looks great and it's very easy to use. From unpacking the box, I had the first of my lights controlled within about 20 minutes (including fitting the switch). Only issue so far is that it does need a reboot now and then or the scheduler seems to stop. Not a huge issue as I have a task running to reboot the unit once a week at night.

I also use the fibaro switch modules with this and they make a great package. Recommended!

Fibaro
Replaced Vera with a home center 2 from Fibaro. Added a number of Fibaro modules and reprogrammed old modules without issue. RGBW works really well. The documentation on your site was helpful when programming scenes.

Works well only with fibaros modules
It doesn't support any recent modules from other manufacturers than Fibaro. In fact it works well only with modules made by Fibaro. If you plan to buy modules from Aeon etc just go for something else than HC2

Seems to be the most user friendly especially with scenes. All works good so far.

I originally bought the Home Center Lite, but as my network developed I discovered that I wanted (I do like to play) the increased flexibility of LUA programming. That's really the only distinction as they're both able to run a substantial installation

Will the lights come on in my house when I pull up on my drive as I had Philips Hue which had this and it never worked ?
Plasmakris P on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, it depends... If you can place a motion sensor where it is still within reach, this can control anything you want that is electric. But, of course, it will react for anything that appears that is big enough... There is a function where the system keeps track of where your smartphone is, I never got this to work.

Many of the motion sensors are battery operated, but many of them are not weatherproof. I like the Fibaro motion sensor. It also report light conditions, temperature and tampering/earthquakes(!). I have one on the back of my house under the roof. It controls when indoor lights turn on. And it turns on garden lights if somone moves in that area after dark. And I also get a temperature metering.
