The Fibaro Home gateways are some of the most advanced Z-Wave powered smart home hubs in the world. Providing seamless control and unparalleled flexibility, there is always a Fibaro to match your needs if you are a smart home owner.
The Fibaro Home Center 3 Lite is a nifty hub specially designed for smaller homes (up to 100 m2) and apartments. As opposed to the Fibaro Home Center 3 which supports up to 230 devices at a time, the Home Center 3 Lite is designed to support up to 40 Z-Wave smart devices, which is good enough for a smaller home.
Additionally, the Fibaro’s Home Center 3 Lite supports 5 plugins and 10 quick applications to power up your smart home. Other similar features offered by the Fibaro Home Center 3 and even the Home Center 2 have been stepped down considerably while retaining the features that make the Fibaro Smart home gateways, making the Home Center 3 Lite the perfect pick for a smaller home.
However, one of the limitations of the Fibaro’s Home Center 3 Lite is that it does not support migration from the Home Center Lite, Home Center 2 and Home Center 3. This could be a problem if you are an existing user of any of the previous versions of the Fibaro Home Center gateways. The table below provides a detailed comparison of the different smart hubs offered by Fibaro.
