Once you’ve built your initial home automation network, you need to be able to control it! The default (and simplest) way to control Z-Wave and Zigbee devices is with a Samsung SmartThings hub. The SmartThings mobile app offers all of the basic functionality – like toggling power, checking status, changing modes, etc.
If you need push-button control of multiple devices, the Remotec Z-Wave Scene Master is the perfect solution.
Important: You will need custom device handlers to use this controller. We paired it with our Samsung SmartThings Hub (Available on Amazon) running a custom piston in WebCore, and can control push & hold actions for each individual button.Available on Amazon
The ideal setup using the Remotec Controller is to pair it with a SmartThings hub (Buy on Amazon) running WebCore. WebCore will allow you to specify the function of each button. You can set actions based on button push, or button hold actions.
