Fibaro brings new premium consumer smart home hub with compatible key fob to the U.S.
FIBARO, a global manufacturer of wireless intelligent home automation and control devices, is now shipping its newest premium smart home hub, Home Center Lite, and portable KeyFob device in the U.S.

Home Center Lite offers gesture control, robust programming and support for hundreds of IoT devices, while KeyFob allows users to remotely manage those devices on the network.

Serving as the brain for the smart home system, Home Center Lite works with all Z-Wave smart home products and Fibaro devices such as the SWIPE gesture pad and Button quick controller, and pairs with KeyFob, a wireless ergonomic hand-controlled device.

Home Center Lite allows users to create, customize and manage up to 230 devices connected to the ecosystem, including lights, thermostat, entertainment systems, home security devices and more. Home Center Lite also works with other popular technologies like Sonos, Logitech, Russound, and Philips. Amazon Echo integration will be available in the second quarter.

KeyFob is designed to be attached to a keychain and act as a handheld control device when users are leaving or coming home. And as long as within working range of a Z-Wave smart home network, users can use KeyFob to turn devices on or off or trigger programmed scenes.

Other KeyFob features include a 50% increase in network range for faster operation of all connected devices; and six distinct buttons that can be customized to control just about any device in the network or a scene of devices. Its safety & monitoring features allow users to monitor KeyFob’s battery life, as well as lock and program a personalized password to prevent accidental or unauthorized usage.

Home Center Lite features improved user-friendly Fibaro app with easy walk through for users to set up scenes and include devices. Customized scenes can include waking up to the blinds opening, or having the lights turn on at a specified level when a motion sensor detects movement at night.

Furthermore, Home Center Lite introduces interactive push notifications which allow quick actions within the notification to the alerts a user has set up. The Fibaro app allows for remote control of the system from anywhere and the desktop app allows for even deeper programming and integration for hobbyists.
