IS LINUXMCE SUPPORT ZIGBEE?
« on: November 01, 2007, 09:04:04 am »
In Malaysia ZWAVE frewuency 868mhz is not allowed. So, we can't use Zwave. The only available for us is Zigbee. Anybody know whether LMCE support Zigbee? I know a manufacturer from Hong Kong producing Zigbee products. If these Zigbee devices can add in to LMCE it will be great.
Please help.

Here  is the link www. nicetex.com.hk .... but just recently I found their price is very high. Much higher than Zwave products.

lmce currently does not support Zigbee... that is not to say that it could not or will not in the future though. Its just that no development has gone into lmce / Zigbee integration to date.

Hmmm... ok then it is unlikely at present that Zwave will be available in Malaysia.

We'd be interested in getting involved in a community effort to get Zigbee implemented. Anyone else interested in Zigbee?

As a user living in Europe I am intrested in Zigbee support. I am thinking about updating my home and Zigbee seems to be quite a good option.
