Is it Echo/Alexa compatible?


It is yes, just got it running yesterday

good price, the echo/lightwave link works well, although currently doesnt spot the inline relays, nor setup events (all off etc). Im sure this will be added soon though. Not sure if other users have had a play linking to the "pc" controller or IFTTT to control. For the money the lightwave is a damn good starting point to home automation, mainly due to light switches being direct replacements for existing live/switch live normal switches. Some do say they lightwave controller in this post can be limited and recommend using the vera controller with rfx addon for controlling lightwave instead, benefit is that it will then do lightwave and the more expensive, larger range of z-wave kit. Not gone down this road as the lightwave is fine for my whole house.

That is very interesting to know about the Vera, should come in handy if/once I reach the limits of LightwaveRF

No status reporting from the light wave kit though, means it doesn't tell you if it's on or off. Use the Zwave kit myself, with the relays that fit behind standard light switches (only put fall is that you need a 3 wire system, i.e. a neutral feed behind the switch).

If anybody wants more info on the zwave then suggest they have a look on the vesternet website, very help vesternet.com/

Anyone knows if Lightwave and HomeEasy are compatible? Some of the items look identical in both except that HomeEasy stopped trading AFAIK.
I have a lot of HomeEasy switches and r/c and was wondering if I can add Lightwave items to my collection?

Damn!! I've missed this deal. The price has increased...

That's strange, still showing up at 63.99 for me. Just store collection available though

I did not try store collection - apologies.
I've found a store not too far from me - worth the drive to dip my toe into home automation
