All the effort was to develop a simple and intuitive smart home hub that brings stable automation throughout your entire home. This is a unique value for a much lower price. FIBARO engineers have put all their engagement to design the new Home Center 3 Lite in accordance with users’ habits and requirements. As with the more extended version of the smart home hub (FIBARO Home Center 3) is equipped with built-in antennas and does not require a cable connection to the router. Wi-Fi does the job perfectly. In addition, it includes an intuitive system setup that makes it easy to create first smart home automation.

Home Center 3 Lite supports Z-Wave technology to integrate with all the manufacturers using this popular protocol. Z-Wave has created unique compatibility throughout all those years on the market. It is also one of the most secured protocols for smart home environments. As for now, you can integrate a wide range of devices, not only FIBARO branded but also third-party devices. In combination with the BiDi Z-Wave adapter, the Nice gates are automated within our smart home system.
TOP LEVEL SECURITY
One may say that automation has a lot to do with stable operation and home safety – and guess what… they are right. Encrypted data transmission (both in local and external connections) makes our smart home very secure. At the same time, using strong, high-quality components gives the hub the ability to operate only locally when cloud access is not available. By this means, most of the automation perform well with no cloud access. So there is no risk that the alarm system won’t work when the Internet Service Provider encounters some failures e.g. maintenance of the Internet infrastructure. Users living in new apartments and still waiting for the ISP connection will have access to defined automations locally such as motion detection, water leakage, shutters control, lighting management etc. At the time of connecting the internet by the ISP, the system will become fully operational, including the remote access from any place in the world.
Extended security elements such as dual system backup within device storage and cloud or technologies that ensure system performance make the device a true stronghold. Using a Cortex A7 processor and 512 MB of RAM, the smart home hub enables extremely fast performance even when it comes to heavy multitasking and operation on up to 40 devices. No other device in this price range on the market can do this. The main goal during FIBARO Home Center 3 Lite development was to create a pure synergy of hardware and software.
Home Center 3 Lite has been certified by the independent VDE Prüf- und Zertifizierungsinstitut GmbH: VDE Approval, CB Certificate for Electrical Safety and EU-Type Examination Certificate confirming compliance with the RED Directive.
