What's different between these two "flavors" of Zipato on Amazon?

Lorenzo Gallucci shared this question 9 years ago


I found two different kind of "classic" (not mini) Zipato controllers on Amazon, namely:


(259€, with "zigbee" inside the name)


(239€, without any "zigbee" tag)

I couldn't figure out whether those devices are the same, or if the first one is different and, perhaps, has zigbee built-in (which may justify the higher price and may be more convenient for space reasons). Moreover, I hadn't find any zigbee-builtin Zipato device on Zipato site, it seems that in Zipato's world Zigbee is available only as an expansion module.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

Hi Lorenzo, they did supply these once. They were called a Zipabox duo, and came as either z-wave and ZigBee or z-wave and 433mhz. The problem was the antenna's were too close to each other and reduced there range and reliability. I think they still produce them, its just cheaper for retailers to sell the Zipabox z-wave only option with optional ZigBee expansion.
