Echo Plus goes with Zigbee
« on: September 29, 2017, 06:49:20 pm »
Amazon put a Zigbee radio in the new Echo Plus hub but no Z-Wave. Talk about appealing to the masses. Zigbee is on congested WiFi frequency as far as I know and is less secure than Z-Wave but the simplicity of setup is probably where Amazon is going with it. I still cannot see it being able to control as many devices as Vera does (like my pool via Autelis) but it is going to give a boost to Zigbee over Z-Wave no doubt about that.
