Looking for a way to start using domotica in my apartment, I found Z-Wave the most appropriate, as I didn’t want to put any cable to connect a sensor or an actor.
In my search for a controller, I started with the razberry board that is connected with some GPIO pins to a (you can guess it) Raspberry PI.
After connecting some sensors (motion / temperature) and actors (power switches), the performance and stability of this razberry (or my Raspberry) was into question.
In my search for solutions I noticed that the community behind the razberry was small (or I just didn’t find it), making me question if I should deviate to a different controller.
The Vera3 (UI5 version) came out of my search. At the price of 199 euro, it was within my budget.
