If you would like Vera or Homeseer HS2/HS3 to work with non Z-Wave wireless home automation equipment (such as the LightwaveRF devices, Oregon Scientific Weather Stations and others) then look no further than the RFXCOM RFXrtx433E USB
RFXtrx433E USB 433.92 MHz transceiver with antenna
If you would like Vera or Homeseer HS2/HS3 to work with non Z-Wave wireless home automation equipment (such as the LightwaveRF devices, Oregon Scientific Weather Stations and others), then look no further than the RFXCOM RFXrtx433E USB. This unit gives you the ability to communicate with the largest number of sensors and control devices that operate within the 433Mhz spectrum. It includes a hardware extension and additional firmware to enable it to support Somfy wireless blinds (RTS). The extended functionality is already supported in Domoticz, Homeseer and the VERA RFX plugin.

Supported by many Home Automation solutions
Easy integration in any application
Flash memory for firmware updates
CSMA-CA technology to avoid RF collisions.
Design and made in Holland
There are various manufacturers who offer wireless sensors and actors for home automation. These manufacturers very often use proprietary protocols to pass measurements and/or action directions. As a result, it can be quite complicated to get them working together.
The RFXCOM transceiver is an ideal solution for this problem as it will connect 433 RF sensors and actors with almost every computer program. The sensors collect information, whilst the actors activate an action. In order to run a process automatically it is necessary to have scenarios. One item (or more) of sensor information leads to the development of a script, thus creating intelligent management. The creativity of the manager (in combination with the available points of measure and action) determine what can be realized in the domains of security, comfort, energy and care. In order to process a script one needs a computer with the correct program. Again there is a variety of software available. These software programs vary greatly in the operating system used, price and level of function. There is a solution for every budget, whether you opt for shareware, a professional solution or a DIY project. RFXCOM offers the solution in translating the wireless messaging traffic from sensors and actors of different manufacturers to standardized information, which then is exchanged with the relevant software.
