Robust Cloud-Based Smart Home Automation Hub
Control your entire home with the Zipato Zipabox ! As the main controller for the Zipato automation and security system, the Zipabox serves as a gateway between the Internet and your home control devices (sold separately). Designed to provide home automation, security, and energy savings all in one unit, the Zipabox supports a variety of technologies through simple, modular customization.
- Built-in support for Z-Wave devices
- Simple drag and drop rule creation
- Connects to web portal via Ethernet
- Communications are fully encrypted
- Free app for Apple and Android phones
The Zipato Zipabox receives programming information from the Zipato web portal through your existing Internet router, and uses wireless radio (RF) technologies, such as Z-Wave, to communicate with your home control devices. Once programming is sent from the cloud to the Zipabox, settings are stored locally, so an Internet connection is not required to operate connected devices.
The Zipabox main unit has built-in Z-Wave technology, and can be expanded to support other communication protocols, such as ZigBee, KNX, ONVIF, UPnP, DLNA, and more. As a modular controller, the Zipabox is easily customized with snap-on expansion modules, as shown above and in videos under the Specifications tab.
Zipato Web Portal & Smartphone App
The Zipato Zipabox includes free access to the Zipato web portal, where you will login online to configure your devices, monitor your home’s security, and review energy consumption of metered devices. You’ll also be able to setup multiple users with different access rights, review home event history, set up email and text alerts, and customize your system by adding additional lights, appliances and devices.
The web portal can be accessed through any web browser, as well as a free smartphone app. The app is available to download for Apple and Android mobile devices, providing convenient remote control for your home.
DIY Customization With Zipato Rule Creator
Through the web portal, you can access the Zipato Rule Creator, an online intuitive graphical programming tool that lets you add devices or change settings whenever you want from anywhere in the world. Just log into your account to make changes. No software installation or programming skills are required!
The Zipato Rule Creator allows you to create “rules” for your connected devices. Rules trigger events when other events occur. You can easily develop rules yourself with the Rule Creator’s comprehensive library of drag and drop micro blocks (control functions), which can be mixed, matched and stacked to create simple or complex control sequences. Events can be triggered by:
- Conditions (many)
- Status change of any device
- Absolute time
- Sunrise/sunset (with offset)
- By email received
- Security panel events
- By matched infrared codes
- Recurring at regular second/minute intervals
- Event actions
Versatile Installation Options
The Zipabox plugs into any standard power outlet with the included power adapter, and connects to your Internet router with the included Ethernet cable. The unit can be placed on a tabletop, mounted to a wall with screws, or snapped onto a DIN rail with fitters.
Optional Monitoring Service
As a free service from Zipato, you can receive automatic system monitoring and alerts from the Zipato Home Monitoring Servers. Alerts can be customized with the Zipato Rule Creator.
