Here is the difference between the Fibaro Home Center 2 and Home Center Lite

Function Home Center 2 Home Center Lite
Graphical Scene Editor YES YES
LUA Programming – for advanced control YES NO
Scene Controllers – LUA-based scenes YES NO
Virtual Devices – LUA-based YES NO
Virtual Devices – Multimedia (HTTP) YES YES
Lili – voice control YES NO
VOIP – Voice Over IP YES NO

LUA Programming

LUA is a programming (scripting) language and is commonly used in home automation controllers to enable users to create more complex control scenes than supported by the controller’s Scene editor. The HC2’s scene editor enables you to use a graphical-based editor or a LUA-based editor, whereas the HCL only supports a graphical editor.

We feel this is the most important difference between the two controllers – and one that you need to think carefully about.

LUA Scenes

Almost all automation in the Fibaro System is controlled by ‘Scenes’. For instance these can make lights turn on when motion is detected at particular times of the day or make several things happen from one simple button press of a remote control. Most of these scenes can be created in Fibaro controller’s excellent ‘Graphical Scene Editor’. But some more complex scenes are actually much easier to create using a LUA script, and in some extreme cases could only be created using LUA.

LUA is a very useful feature to have, occasionally, a simple LUA script can solve an issue that would have required a complex graphical scene.

Scene Controllers

Some remote controls that act as ‘Scene Controllers’ need a LUA-based scene to work correctly in the Fibaro Controllers.

Virtual Devices

Virtual devices are what they sound like – devices in the Fibaro controller that aren’t linked to physical devices. Virtual devices are very useful for controlling devices via other networks, such as AV equipment that can be controlled from your Wi-Fi/Ethernet system (HTTP). They are also useful to create a simple button in the Fibaro App that can control a number of scenes – quickly and easily.

  • Scene and Device Control (LUA)To create Virtual devices that control scenes you need to use LUA, therefore, these types of Virtual Devices cannot be created in Home Center Lite.
  • Remote Control of 3rd Party Products (HTTP & IP)Virtual Devices can be created that control products via the IP network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet), via HTTP requests. These are fully supported in Home Center Lite as they use a different type of Virtual Device configuration and command protocol (HTTP Strings).

Power Management

Thanks to the built-in power management functionality, using the Fibaro Home Center Lite and Z-Wave devices with power metering capabilities, you can monitor the current energy consumption and the power consumption history while being able to spot the devices consuming the most of it.

Detailed statistics are presented as clear charts, helping you compare numbers and estimate bills. Not only will you conserve energy, you will also save a considerable amount of money.

Be alerted to potential threats

Immediately

At the first sign of trouble, The Fibaro Home Center Lite will immediately inform you of a threatening fire, flood, break-in or leaking gas (provided you have the appropriate Z-Wave devices installed of course). Fibaro Home Center can protect your home by cutting the water supply when pipes are leaking, or cutting the gas supply, ventilate your home and immediately inform you about it. Having discovered a break-in attempt, Fibaro will trigger the alarm, notify security and feed a live video stream from security cameras directly to your mobile devices.

Just the way you like it

There’s nothing like getting back to your warm, cosy home, especially on a cold winter day. Using Fibaro you can start heating and set your favourite temperature while you are still sitting at the office. You will easily program the climate panel, through which your home will be heated to the right temperature on each day of the week, in defined hours.

Set the heating to the perfect temperature that will help you get out of bed easily. For nights, choose the temperature in which you sleep well and wake up relaxed. The Fibaro Climate Panel will make sure your home is always comfortable. You will also save money on heating and cooling costs.

Where are you

Your home always knows where you and your family members are thanks to geo-localisation. When you leave home, the system turns off unneeded devices, arms the alarm system and simulates your presence to discourage thieves from breaking in.

While calculating your return route, the system will adjust temperature and run pre-programmed scenes. Energy saving, safety and comfort.

Fibaro have managed to squeeze the huge capabilities of the intelligent system into one, tiny box (90 x 90 x 33mm). Home Center Lite is a compact device that will spoil you with the comfort of managing your intelligent home through its easy operation and wireless communication. Miniaturisation and advanced technology will make impossible become possible.
