Best way to integrate Z-wave

Kopren 8 months ago • updated by Jørund Kopren 5 months ago 8


I am having a HDL system with IRidium server installed. But I also need a few z-wave devices in my house:

- Sensative strips for door/window status

- Danalock or August lock

The idea is for these to give current status to iRidium and to let iRidium control the door lock (and other devices) according to scene or command. 

As I understand, iRidium has js for Vera and Fibaro.  

What is the best (and "shortest) way to get this working?




Yes, we support the controllers Vera, Fibaro and z-wave.me. In addition, before the end of the summer we plan to release support for Z-Wave on the basis of our UMC server. Therefore, the fastest way is to use any of the controllers (Vera, Fibaro and z-wave.me)


thanks for swift reply! 

I have this server:


So I guess this is not the UMC. 

Which Z-wave controller would you recomment for best integration?

Yes, this server from HdlNordik - it is not UMC

Sorry, but I can not recommend a specific controller, because each of them is good in its own way)

Ok, thanks. I will start out with Vera .

kopren: Hi. I've some of the same plans. Can we talk? 

Sure, PM me here (if possible) or jkopren @twitter

Also an option is to a RPi with RazBerry addon. iRidium can also run on the same RPi or separate. I choose this option so I could stick with DIN-rail modules and put a RPi in a DIN case.

Thanks for your reply. If I understand you right, I will need a seperate RPI in addition to the one i have (HDL nordic rpi server)?
