Integration IRO to zwave controller


#1

I look for a solution to integrate my Rachio IRO comptabile a home automation controller Z-Wave protocol.

Do you have suggestions for a controller that also uses the cloud as my IRO.

Thank you!

i have yet to find anything. im currently using zway. there is domoticz but i have no idea if it is ifttt capable.

the zway will let you control stuff remotely as it sets up a reverse tunnel from the z-way.me servers.


#3

but, im a much bigger fan of zwave than i am the other technologies, just because they have already gone through a protocol and framing revision and it is backwards compatible.


#4

oh, btw, they do not integrate very well. im currently working on an http device, but the structure of zway is not making that very useful.


#5

I’m very curious as to why you’d want to integrate a Rachio IRO with a Z-wave controller. IRO seems to do a good job of running the sprinklers. Is it for additional control / automation, logging, notifications, workflow, or usability (one screen to go to to see everything)?


#6

I am satisfied with the IRO extremment interface. I misspoke. I do not want to integrate. My intention is that through IFTTT I can interact between the two controllers.

I also want to have a secure cloud environment to access any location in the home automation controller (X10 Zwave and (if possible)).

I currently examining HomeTroller-SEL (Homeseer) and Zapito.

i want it for logging purposes so that i can aggregate my own data…as well as a ghetto way of homekitting a rio to run a zone on voice command as zway provides a homekit bridge.


#8

Is IFTTT an acceptable bridge?

With SmartThings, IFTTT and Iro I can interact with z-wave (as well as many other things).

Yea I don’t use a smart things. I’m using a razberry.
