Overall I was very impressed with this lock. It has many great features that should be standard in a high-end smart lock. It was well thought out, including the aspect of using a single lock frame that can be converted from a Connected by August (CBA), Apple HomeKit (iM1), Z-Wave Plus (ZW2), and Zigbee (HA2).
The CBA model has the most functionality, which is reflected in the price, but the other versions offer more capabilities when compared to the YRD156 for example.
Overall I was very impressed with this lock. It is very straight forward and offers great capabilities. The commanded lock/unlock was very reliable, and always sent back status to the hub. My only complaint is that it is sold exclusively through distributors and you’ll see wild markups on the price if you’re not careful.
The Zooz Zen30 is a Z-Wave switch that can control 2 loads independently with one Double Switch. The upper switch is a paddle dimmer which can be configured as an on/off switch through parameters. The lower switch is a push-button switch that can control fan loads up to 15 amps. The fan switch (lower) provides no speed control.
This is the first Z-Wave switch that I’ve seen with this capability!
iBlinds are a great Z-Wave Plus retrofit for 2 – 21/2 inch horizontal blinds. The setup can be accomplished in under 20 minutes. The motor fits in the headrail. iBlinds currently support North American Z-Wave frequencies and more may be coming soon. Please see the iBlinds website for more information.
Relatively speaking, these are very affordable. I have seen other Z-Wave blind controllers for twice the price. These are normally prices around $150 each, but I have seen them on sale for under $100.
The Inovelli LZW31 comes in two flavors, red and black. The Black Series dimmer is the utilitarian little brother of the Red Series dimmer. It’s nice that they decided to provide a basic version (that’s still very capable) for those customers that don’t want or care about all the extra features.
Before you go crazy and purchase a bunch of either model, it’s a good idea to understand the differences to make sure you get what you need. The price difference is under $10, so when in doubt, spend the extra money (in my opinion). What you get as a result will be sure to please.
