    Hi, any tip about how to use Z-Wave with B4a?

    I'want to purchase an Android device with built in Z-Wave controller that receive and transmitte commands.

    If they provide an API in Java for Android can be ported to B4a?

    thanks!

    Z-Wafe is a wireless protocoll. You need to have a Z-Wave reciever/Sender which is connected to an android-device. Maybe RasperryPI

    Hi, can you explain little more about z-wave ?. It seems that the frequency is 900 mhz , so you need a gateway to connect the Android device with the home, an I wrong?

    Hi CyberoxInc , I think that there is not a good idea to implement a Z-Wave controller into an andoid device , but the androi device have only to comunicate with the controller so you can build a graphical interface but if the andoid device crash the home continue to work !
