Supported Devices

This is a list of the currently supported interfaces. For a discussion of some of the modules and devices supported by these interfaces see the Supported Modules section.

Z-Wave Interfaces

  • Vera from Vera Control Ltd, previously Micasa Vera. This is our choice for best ZWave interface.
    • Legacy interfaces:
      • Vizia Leviton Vizia Z-Wave interface
      • ZTroller HomeSeer Z-Troller Z-Wave interface
      • ZStick Aeon Labs Z-Stick Z-Wave Interface

X10 Powerline Protocol Devices

  • XTB-232 (replacement for the CM11a and our pick for best X10 interface currently available)
  • CM15 (X10 and X10 wireless receive and transmit)

UPB Universal Powerline Protocol Interfaces

  • UPB Interfaces UPB is a popular alternative to X10 and Insteon as a high powered powerline protocol.

X10 Wireless Receivers/Transmitters

  • W800 (X10 wireless and X10 Security)
  • MR26 (X10 Wireless)
  • CM19 (X10 Wireless receive and transmit)
  • CM15 (X10 Wireless and Security. Receive and Transmit)
  • RFX, RFXe and RFXt (X10 Wireless and Security, Oregon Scientific devices)

Insteon

  • Vera by adding an Insteaon PLM to the Vera interface all Insteon devices are now supported.

mySensors

  • mySensors XTension is now a fully featured controller for the mySensors arduino based sensor system.

Alarm Systems

  • Ad2usb the AD2USB interface for Ademco/Honeywell Security systems

xBee Radio Connected Devices

  • xBee Radios xBee radios for remote monitoring, control and serial data!

Zigbee

  • Phillips Hue Phillips Hue Bridge
  • Vera The Vera Plus also supports ZigBee devices

Analog/Digital I/O and data capture

RFID Receivers

  • Parallax Short range passive RFID Receiver.
    • Legacy Devices:

Thermostats

Dallas 1-Wire

  • 1-wire temperature sensors are supported through the Barix device interface.
  • Additional 1-wire devices can be connected through an Arduino Interface interface if you dont mind a little code.

Do It Yourself Interface

  • Do It Yourself Simple method of rolling your own interface to non-supported devices.
  • Arduino a simple text protocol for connecting to arduino or other similar DIY style devices with a simple protocol and example code.

JSON

  • the JSON Interface interface handles either simple web requests to send data to a unit or the parsing of complicated JSON data structures to take whatever action is necessary. Just about anything that makes a web request via a simple form or via a JSON packet can be used to control units via this interface.

Wireless Tags

Geofences

  • Any geofence app that has the ability to make an HTTP request when entering or exiting can be used with the JSON interface
  • An XTension user is also the developer of mGeofence which works great with XTension and the JSON server.
  • Locative is dead, long live Locative! While the cloud features are no longer available the app itself continues to be available and the cloud is not necessary for use with XTension. No need to switch if you have this working. We have a Locative tutorial
  • another method of setting up geofences with drop box and IFTT can be seen here
  • Geohopper is supported as of build 897 with enhancements to the JSON interface

Traffic or Parking Space Management

  • Rosim Wireless car sensor for traffic sensing or parking space monitoring.

Ping/Network Presence

  • Network Presence interface watches devices coming and going on your local network via the arp table and can also ping remote hosts on the internet.
