Thinka today presented a new Z-Wave Bridge, which can also be integrated into HomeKit.
Thinka Z-Wave with HomeKit is here
The Dutch company Thinka offers controllers that make smart home devices compatible with HomeKit. Thinka started with the KNX controller, which integrates the wired KNX products into HomeKit. Thinka is now starting with a new bridge that will integrate Z-Wave devices into HomeKit.
90% of all HomeKit accessories are based on WiFi or Bluetooth, which, unlike the Z-Wave protocol, are not optimized for home automation. Z-Wave offers a full range of over 3,000 smart home products. By activating Z-Wave for HomeKit, Thinka brings the best of 2 worlds together.
Michael Franken, founder and CEO of Thinka
For users of Z-Wave products, the integration in HomeKit with the Thinka controller now offers a great opportunity to combine their devices with other HomeKit products in automations.
