Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5)

· · · Internet of Things

Bought the Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5) from Automate Asia for S$110. The product is pretty new and it is not listed on their website yet.

After getting my hands on the Fibaro Starter Kit which includes a wall plug, I got kinda addicted to monitor my energy usage of my always-on switches like the television switch, Internet switch and computer switch.

I think I came across Automate Asia in the local news. So when I needed to make my house “smarter”, I decided to engage their services.

Note that this is not a sponsored post, I paid for their services. Just wanted to do a shout out to Mike and the team at Automate Asia for the awesome service with the answers to my noob questions.
