Hello! My name is Svetlana, I'm a UX/UI designer working on a design for a smart home app. I want to know about the experience of using any smart home application (be it MiHome, Tuya, Home Assistant, etc.) and your own thoughts. If you have a similar experience and want to help, please write to me in private. Your participation will help me make the product better and understand the needs of real users. I'm looking forward to communicating with you! Thank you.
Hi. So when I had my house build I ran a bunch of stuff, one of which being two pairs of speaker wires to each bedroom and to 4 spots around my living room… Over the years I have used them here and there with different success.. But today they sit in my walls just unused.
I converted all the cat6 or 5e (I don’t remember) over to basically eithernet jacks. The cable coaxial well it’s there but now unused. But I was thinking there has got to be some use for two pairs of speaker wires to each room. Can I make them usb plugs? Not sure so looking for ideas.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
Aeotec/z-wave-us is selling these for <$20 on Amazon. A shocking price when you know that the cheapest usb dongle alone is about $30 and this one includes a z-way license which costs >$50 as a standalone.
@rafale77 can I flash the frequency on this ?
Yes, they are. very easy to reflash.
I am not sure, I have two of them I got at this same price and only upgraded using zwave.me firmwares.
I suspect that the firmware structure is different. This is also a slightly different chipset than the standard uzb for which you can find the firmware from the silabs SDK (ZM5304 or SD3502). I believe they are SD3202.
The latest z-way firmware runs 6.81.01 and I did ask @PoltoS if he would consider upgrading to 6.81.6.
UZB with software are on sale at 11 Euro on Amazon EU (.de/.it/.fr/.es). This should include the license.
I've one on order that should be here in a couple of days.
Can you paste a link for amazon.de?
it was there: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Z-Wave-Switch-White-IP20-ZME-064374/dp/B00R659VMK/
when I ordered mine, they were 3 available. not it's back ot is normal price, unfortunately.
