I've been doing a bit of reading on what was reported in march and mentioned by some users on this forum about a product between qnap and fibaro and it's got me thinking and very interested/excited ... Much of the hardware that many hubs are built on are really nothing special and most also run some linux distribution the core. As a result they are very much a commodity product. We have also seen the migration of CCTV / dvr systems to NAS devices (synology surveillance center) . Many NAS can now act as a router /modem/dhcp server/webservers with the addition of simpie dongles. We have also seen many HA solutions that run on on a PI, etc and some even on NAS, so it's not surprising fibaro are moving in this direction as well. It also allows them to expand beyond zwave into something like zigbee as it just requires a second dongle.This would be a very god move as systems that span multiple wireless platform offer the end user many more devices to interact with. Migrating their HA platform to a NAS also gives them access to what is stored on the NAS, music, movies, security footage as well as proving almost end diskspace to store data on. A NAS based solution would also offer the ability to mirror the HA platform or create a master /slave setup in the case of a disk/platform failure. You could even store previous running versions that could be switched in and out more easily (as opposed to a back/up restore solution). It would also be a easy way to resolve the much maligned backup/recovery solution currently employed by the HC2. Finally it would also open the possibility to run external bridges such as the HA bridge or sonos-http-api on all the same hardware with the benefits this would bring, through the use of node.js and perhaps even docker. There was references made to two qnap devices but nether come cheap TDS-16489U, (enterprise level ) - https://www.qnap.com/en/product/model.php?II=209 - approx 8k euro TS-453Bmini.(consumer level) - https://www.qnap.com/en/product/model.php?II=262 - approx 500 euro (with no drives), similar price to HC2 links to some articles if you're interested in reading Consumer IT - http://www.consumerit.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3357:fibaro-teams-up-with-qnap&catid=25&Itemid=100021 Inside CI - http://www.insideci.co.uk/news/fibaro-partners-with-qnap-for-smart-home-solutions.aspx QNAP - https://qiot.qnap.com/blog/en/2017/03/23/qnap-starts-cooperation-fibaro-providing-feature-packed-hub-smart-home-systems/ Prowly - https://prowly.com/14228-fibaro-begins-cooperation-with-qnap Short Video - This move may very well be the start of fibaro moving away from proprietary hardware completely. It could also see the rise of the once humble NAS being elevated to the much talked about (but never fully realised) multipurpose home hub. It will be very interested in seeing how far fibaro will take the many integration possibilities and opportunities. Looking forward to it being released and seeing its capbilities _f
Hello, I would like to control the QNAP disk storage via HC2. QNAP I use to play movies on TV, so it does not make sense to run when no one is at home. I could turn it off with a socket, but it would not prove to be a HDD. In a FIBARO is a module "WakeOnLan". Did you set it up in collaboration with QNAP? Turning on after coming home and turning off after leaving? Thanks!
Hello, I've found this article on QNAP site ..... can we have some news about it ? Maybe we can have an HC2 virtualized on QNAP using an USB zwave module (like I do at this momenti with domoticz) ? Let us know ....
