Z-Stick Gen5 is a Z-Wave Plus antenna that works with any platform.

It’s been designed to bring Z-Wave to every computer platform. You can use it with a PC, HTPC or laptop, with Mac, Linux or Windows, with single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi 4, and even select NAS systems such as the Asus’ Asustor. Using a combination of such platforms and Z-Stick Gen5 immediately gives you 2 big advantages over a lot of standard gateways;

Once you’ve decided which platform to use Z-Stick Gen5 with, it’s time to select the software you want to use to power your gateway and your smart home. Works with open source and pro software. (Home Assistant, openHAB, Domoticz, Homeseer, Axial, Indigo.)

Z-Stick Gen5 is about dependability. You can depend on your smart home not going offline when cloud hosting does. And you can depend on your Z-Stick Gen5 not going offline at all. With its inbuilt 100 mAh rechargeable lithium battery, Z-Stick Gen5 can continue to work for up to 15 days even when your power is out.
