Have a project where they have an extensive Z-Wave network and would like to integrate some of that into a M1G. I would prefer not to install relays and connect them to ZOOZ Multi Relays to integrate the two systems. Are they any good options out there?
I use the Hubitat to talk directly to my Elk M1 panel. All zones, relays, etc, are all available to me for rules and tasks. I can run lights off of zones that trip, front door light turns on after dark if the front door zone is opened, etc.
I started here. I have the Hubitat C7 hub and various light switches and Zooz relays as well.
Home Assistant has a great Elk M1 integration as well. Free as well.
In the 10 years it’s been available as opensource it’s really good and much much easier to use now. 2023.9 is the latest release.
I’ve been using it with a Home Assistant Yellow PoE edition with a Zooz ZAC93LR GPIO module (about $18.00 at many retailers). Just install the GPIO before installing HA and you are good to go! Works well with the Zigbee/Matter/Thread module on board as well as Bluetooth (you do not need to disable BT in the boot configuration, that’s for other Raspberry Pi setups). You can also use a leftover PC or inexpensive single board computer.
The Elk M1G integration is actively maintained and updated. (Unlike the HomeSeer plugin before I moved platforms).
