Z-Pi 7 is a daughterboard designed to be installed directly atop the Raspberry platform. It has been designed to enable software developers to bring custom automation solutions to market without having to co-develop unique hardware alongside their software. Once connected to a Raspberry, it exposes developers to the full Z-Wave API including 700 series Z-Wave.
Compatible with both Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Zero, Z-Pi 7 physically connects to the Rasberry’s GPIO port. Its small footprint means that it can be wrapped in any Raspberry case to offer a seamless, all-in-one gateway.
Z-Pi 7 is part of Aeotec’s range of turnkey hardware designed to enable solutions makers to build automation solutions without developing custom hardware.
What makes it special.
Turnkey gateway-hardware development solution.
Z-Pi 7 offers the quickest time-to-market for hardware developers, the most seamless installation, and the most reliable platform upon which to build a professional solution dependent on Z-Wave.
Made for professional solutions.
With Aeotec’s Gen7 technology serving as its foundation and its compatibility with Z-Wave Plus V2 (700 series), Z-Stick 7 has been engineered for professional solutions which want to utilise the advantages of those technology including faster, more secure, and more reliable wireless communication.
Full Z-Wave compatibility.
Z-Pi 7 fully enables Z-Wave Plus connectivity that is compatible with all Z-Wave versions from 100 series through to the 700 series. With the latter, it enables SmartStart and S2-security natively.
