What is it ?
automationbridge PRO helps bring different home automation and smart home systems together. Technologies that would not normally talk to each other natively, can now communicate harmoniously by using our various plugins to bring these into your HA platform, or even standalone without a HA controller.
How do I use it ?
Simply connect the automationbridge PRO hardware to your home router or network switch via the included ethernet cable.
Once connected, you will be able to access the clean, easy to use interface via your local web browser. Setup and unification of your smart home devices is then as simple as “point and click” – no complicated coding – you will be up and running in minutes.
What does it integrate with ?
automationbridge PRO is designed to work with the following HA controllers :
– Fibaro Home Center HC2 & HC3
– Fibaro Home Center Lite & HC3 Lite
– RTI XP Controllers
– Ness/Elk M1
What is Standalone Mode ?
This is new feature, where the automationbridge PRO can function by itself, without the need of an additional HA controller, and has support for a subset of the plugins listed below, and still provides all the features for Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa & Apple HomeKit/Siri.
For example you can setup in this mode, add in the Shelly plugins to provide these to HomeKit, and used with the Virtual Garage Door plugin, can use a combination of Shelly devices to present a proper Garage Door object to HomeKit.
Or you could use the IP Cameras / iVSEC plugins to present your security cameras into HomeKit (Google & Alexa support coming)
All communication to/from external voice services is secured with HTTPS using SSL certificates, no identifiable data is stored on our server platforms, nor transmitted between providers.
Has been extensively tested and certified with Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant. iOS HomeKit support is provided by a customised version of Homebridge.
