Product Details

The FIBARO Home Center 2 Controller is the brain of the Fibaro system, or any Z-Wave based home automation system.

  • Security
  • Scenes
  • Cameras
  • Climate
  • Notifications
  • Multimedia

The FIBARO Home Center 2 Controller interface gives you easy control over groups of devices responsible for the same function – for example, heating, air conditioning or garden watering. Thanks to the Device Panels, you can easily schedule operations for groups of devices, based on the day of the week or the time of day.

Fibaro devices can be installed in any wall switch box, behind a light switch, roller shutter switch, etc and are compatible with every electrical system. They do not connect permanently to the building’s infrastructure so if you wish to redecorate your apartment, take down some walls and change your interior design they won’t be a problem. Simply take out any given module from the wall and install it in a new location. Thanks to mesh networking, the module will update its location and resume operation.

Almost all automation in the Fibaro System is controlled by ‘Scenes’. These can, for example, turn lights on when motion is detected at particular times of day or make several things happen around your house with the push of a single button on your Z-Wave controller. Most of these scenes can be created using Fibaro’s excellent ‘Graphical Scene Editor’. But some more complex scenes are actually much easier to create using a LUA script, and in some cases can only be created using LUA.

LUA is a programming (scripting) language and is commonly used in home automation controllers to enable users to create more complex control scenes than those supported by the controller’s Scene editor. The FIBARO Home Center 2 Controller‘s scene editor enables you to use a graphical-based editor or a LUA-based editor.

For light users we also provide a smaller, less expensive system, the FIBARO Home Center Lite.


Simplicity & Perfection

Once you experience the Fibaro System, you will never turn back.

Welcome to the World of Fibaro

The Home Center 2 is the brains of the Fibaro System, or any Z-Wave based home automation system. The Home Center 2 was designed and developed to include many unique features never before seen in home automation controllers. Home Center 2 redefines Z-Wave based home automation and introduces real smart home intelligence.

The Home Center 2 by Fibaro isn’t just an electronic device. It’s also a well designed, innovative and user friendly interface, featuring functions never seen before.

Precision engineering meets intelligent design

Fibaro have put huge emphasis on styling and build quality – Home Center 2 is enclosed in a precision engineered, solid aluminium case. Only the highest quality materials are used throughout. Fibaro Home Center 2 isn’t just well made, true innovation also lives inside…

Intel Atom 1.6Ghz Processor

Thanks to its power and efficiency, Home Center 2 is much, much faster than other Z-Wave gateway controllers. The communication within your Z-Wave network will improve dramatically, resulting in immediate response to Z-Wave commands.

4GB MLC Recovery Disc

Significantly improved security thanks to Fibaro’s proprietary approach to data protection. Each Home Center 2 has its own Recovery Disc, holding system backups, unique to each gateway. This completely prevents unauthorised access to the system.

1GB RAM & 2GB SLC Hard Drive

Large memory fast processor = quick communication between the Fibaro System and Z-Wave devices. Hardware architecture used in the Home Center 2 makes any Z-Wave based home automation system work much faster then ever before.

Quick and Easy Installation

Plug the power cord into the POWER connection and the network cable into a spare LAN socket on your router. Installation is done.

Within 2 minutes of powering on, Home Center 2 will be ready to operate. By default, your Home Center 2 waits to get an IP address from your router. If you are unsure of the IP address that has been automatically assigned – simply hold the RECOVERY button for a while when powering on – Home Center 2 will automatically use a static IP address of 192.168.81.1.

Now type the Home Center 2 IP address into your web browser’s address bar and you will be introduced to the Home Center 2 user interface. Couldn’t be easier.

New possibilities with Linked Devices

Your Home Cener 2 gives you new possibilities thanks to Linked Devices. The Linked Devices function lets you combine multiple devices into one virtual device with combined functionality – for example, 3 heater thermostats plus temperature and humidity sensors.

The primary advantage of this feature is the convenience of being able to control multiple devices at the same time, at the press of one button.

Great convenience using Device Panels

The Home Center 2 interface gives you easy control over groups of devices responsible for the same function – for example, heating, air conditioning or garden watering. Thanks to the Device Panels, you can easily schedule operations for groups of devices, based on the day of the week or time of day.

Set up your command post

You are in total control

Your new command post for your home will be the Fibaro app, with its layout and functionality dependent on your decisions. You can create and modify tables, icons, names in such a way that you will always have those you find most important always at hand – customised by you, for you.

User-friendliness and flexibility of the Fibaro app will make your intelligent Z-Wave system simple and straightforward. You will not need a university degree in engineering or computer science! The Fibaro app makes things easy, so you can get on with more important things.

So easy to automate your home

For comfort, security, energy savings or convenience – Home Center 2 will enable you to easily create living spaces perfectly tailored to your needs and lifestyle.

Home Center 2 offers a new, clever approach to creating simple or elaborate automated scenes, grouped devices and conditional events for your Z-Wave enabled home. With it’s user-friendly “drag and drop” interface and easy to understand conditional formatting – creating true home automation scenes and intelligence is simple.

Here’s an example of how easy and powerful it is…

Scene 1: “Rain”

If raining:

close roof windows – turn garden sprinklers OFF – set “it rained” variable to 1

Scene 2 “Turn garden sprinklers on at 6:00 am”

Each day at 6:00 am check if “it rained” (user defined variable):

If not (“it rained” variable = 0) – turn the sprinklers ON.

Example Scene 3 “Reset variable”

If “it rained” and 12 hours passed from that time:

set “it rained” variable value to 0

Geo localisation

Your Home Center 2 gives you another unique functionality – Locating your family members. Now You can always know where your children are, without the need to call them every 5 minutes. Your Home Center 2 will get their location for you.

Geo localisation also allows your home to make decisions based on your location. Almost home… Your home will be ready for your arrival. Headed out… your home will automatically start saving energy when you are not home.

Control and monitor from anywhere

With the Fibaro app for Android or Apple devices, you can easily take control of your home from the comfort of your bed, the office or from half-way around the World.

You are not just connected to your home – you are in total control… and always informed. Customised push notifications, emails or sms messages will alert you to the first sign or trouble – or simply keep you informed of what is going on at home.
