The RaZberry turns every Raspberry Pi into a Z-Wave Home Automation Gateway. The bundle of hardware and precompiled Z-Wave wireless network management software waits to be completed by your own user interface running in a web browser or a mobile phone.
Access the Gateway locally and remotely!
Whenever you access find.zwave.me again and a local RaZberry is found, clicking on the IP address will lead you right to your Smart Home User Interface.
