ZipaTile: All-In-One Smart Home Hub

Now you can put a large variety of smart home functions into your home in a very simple, all inclusive and inexpensive way. To this end, the Zipato ZipaTile is a great solution!

The Zipato ZipaTile is more than just a smart home hub. It’s a complete, all-in-one smart home controller that can easily replace other home devices such as a security system, IP camera, alarm siren, thermostat, automation controller, and intercom. It’s compatible with most of the popular communications protocols, including Z-Wave, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, which means you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when selecting from the wide range of smart home devices being offered in the industry today.

With an attractive sleek design, the ZipaTile is a wall-mount Android-powered home automation controller that not only features an 8-inch touchscreen tablet, but also numerous built-in communication radios and sensors to detect motion, shock, sound, light, temperature, and humidity. It has an integrated IP camera, speaker, and microphone; plus, it comes with a temperature sensor and has a dual dry output and dry input for wiring in other external devices.

Included with the Zipato ZipaTile is free access to the Zipato web portal that can be accessed with any web browser and Zipato’s free smartphone app (Android and iOS). Once logged in online, you’ll be able to configure and manage your smart devices, monitor your home security, and even review energy consumption of metered devices.

The way the Zipato ZipaTile works is by receiving programming information from the Zipato web portal via your existing Internet router. It uses wireless communication protocols, such as Z-Wave or ZigBee (and more), to communicate with other smart devices. Once the ZipaTile receives programming from the cloud, the settings are stored locally, so you won’t have to be connected to the Internet in order to control your connected devices.

You’ll also have access to the Zipato Rule Creator that can be accessed through the web portal. The Zipato Rule Creator is an online intuitive graphical programming tool that has a comprehensive library of drag and drop micro blocks that can be mixed, matched, and stacked to create control sequences that could be simple or complex. It allows you to add devices or change settings by creating “rules” for your connected devices. Rules trigger events when other events occur. So for example you could set a rule to have the lights turn on in your living room as soon as the smart lock at your front door is unlocked in the evening; or you could have your alarm system turn on as soon as you lock the front door in the morning on your way out.

The Zipato ZipaTile is truly an all-in-one smart home controller that is perfect for homeowners that are seeking a complete starter system or for a way to simplify their current home automation system. To fully understand what the ZipaTile has to offer, we listed a complete list of features below.
