The RaZberry module plugs in to your Raspberry PI board enabling it to connect to the Z-Wave network and function like a Z-Wave Home Automation Gateway.

The plug-in module includes firmware drivers and the Z-Wave stack (Z-Way). The browser-based development interface enables you to create your own software using an easy to understand and easy to use Java Script interface. Writing your own home automation app was never easier and never more affordable.

The RaZberry plug-in module includes:

  • Z-Wave transceiver plugs into GPIO interface of the Raspberry PI
  • Optimised firmware running on the Z-Wave transceiver chip
  • Certified Z-Wave communication stack Z-Way - running on the Raspberry PI
  • Z-Way AJAX-based User Interface for easy access to all Z-Wave functions of Z-Way and as a reference for your own User Interface enhancements.
  • Note - Raspberry PI board is not included with this module.


Z-Wave Plus

The RaZberry PI Module is Z-Wave Plus Certified. Z-Wave Plus (5th Generation Z-Wave) offers a lot of new features including increased range, extended battery life and Over The Air upgrading (OTA). Take a look at our "What is Z-Wave Plus" guide for more information

Stick a better choice
I bought this card to run on s raspberry pi. The card actually works fine but has some downsides. First of all: documentation is nearly 0. Even to find out where to put on your pi you need to google pictures. After that you start looking for manuals what to do next. Unfortunately most tutorials online refer to outdated raspbian versions. Some stating it won't work with the latest release. At the end I found it working with the latest raspbian quite well. However for real z-wave automation you need to work with a third party software. The software for the card is fine for inclusion only... After all this reading and studying: the card is for the techies out there. Who looks for s plug and play option should consider an USB stick instead. With latest Raspberry release the sub shortage should be settled, otherwise a simple hub would help. Summary: 5 stars for it as it work decent. 3 stars minus for the complicated use and lack of documentation. Ergo 2 stars only and for most not worth to buy...

this was a better option for adding Zwave features to my Raspberry Pi over the USB version

Cheapest way to get control of some z-wave devices

Cheaper than a veraplus. Open source software.

I use lots of Pi's and want to learn more about Z-Wave at a fairly low level
Keith J. 27 Feb 2016
Used with the recent MagPi magazine freebie Raspberry Pi Zero to create a cheap, low power consumption Z-Wave hub. Works very well with Domoticz control software, but beware, you must use Raspian Wheezy OS. This combination doesn't seem compatible with Raspian Jessie yet.

Can the Rasberry PI Act as a Device on a Z-Wave Network instead of a gateway? I would like to bring the Z-Wave Enabled Rasberry Pi into a project that provides plenty of Digital Inputs and Outputs that are lacking from the existing range of products. Cheers.
Chris W. 8 May 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Technically this might be possible - it largely depends on whether the firmware on the RaZberry would let you operate it as a "device" instead of a "controller". Typically controllers and devices are based on different development hardware / SDKs. Assuming that the RaZberry does allow this, you would then need to develop your own software to run on the Pi to operate as a device - I doubt that Z-Way (the software designed to run with RaZberry on the Pi) or OpenZWave (an open source Z-Wave implementation) would allow you to do that currently. Once those hurdles have been overcome, you would have to look at how your new hardware devices - in terms of inputs / outputs - would be represented at a Z-Wave level to other Z-Wave controllers (in terms of Command Classes). This is a very complex area where it's important to work closely with controller manufacturers to ensure that a device is compatible with as many controllers as possible. It's all very well creating a "technically brilliant" device, but if it doesn't actually work in the common Z-Wave controllers it would be pretty pointless. But before you did any of that, if your eventual intention would be to market the final device to the masses, then you would need to look at the licensing requirements for Z-Wave certification by Sigma / Zensys - more information is available at Hope that helps!
