The New Z-Wave hub from Thinka offers something not seen in HomeKit before, presenting an officially supported way to get ALL* Z-Wave devices exposed to HomeKit. No other hub so far has this capability at the time of writing but in essence, the company state that over 3,000 Z-Wave devices can be exposed to HomeKit through their hub – at a price!
The hub isn’t cheap, at 429 Euros (incl. VAT), and is currently only available in Europe, although we’ve heard it’ll come to the US in early 2022. If you can handle the price and have tons of Z-Wave devices you want to be exposed to HomeKit without the need for HomeBridge or HomeAssistant, this is the device for you.
We also look at some child devices connected to the hub to see how they perform.
