The POP-Z-Weather is the first autonomous solar sensor of Z-Wave technology (Gen5-Z-Wave PLUS) that acts as a Z-Wave weather station.
This multifunctional sensor obtains the energy for its operation from the sun. Thanks to the energy management and the internal capacitor, the wind speed sensor sends the measurements to the Z-Wave home automation control unit even at night. That is, it is also a Z-Wave anemometer, in addition to measuring other parameters and variables and communicating them through Z-Wave.
The integrated energy manager calculates automatically and establishes activity intervals of between 5 minutes (on sunny days) and 1 or 2 hours on cloudy days or at the beginning of the day.
Additionally, energy management protects against total discharges and allows a continuous operation for the reporting of sudden bursts of air, storm or nightfall in case of emergency.
The multifunctional outdoor sensor allows us to capture and send different values to the home automation controller via Z-Wave, such as:
As additional functionality, the Z-Weather performs a sampling of the energy delivered by the solar energy cell available to it. The measurement is normalized as if it were a solar cell of 1 square meter and reported with 16% efficiency in kWh. To calculate the wind speed (z-wave anemometer) every 8 turns a pulse is reported.
Thanks to Popp's Z-Weather, interesting domotic scenes can be realized that close blinds, roof windows, collect awnings, irrigation control, etc. You can also perform this type of actions through the association of devices. It is also very interesting sunlight or ambient light to operate devices or domotic scenes, such as turning on the exterior lights at dusk, or turn them off at dawn.
Important note: Before setting up and using Z-Weather, the unit needs to be fully charged by direct exposure to the sun for about 4-6 hours. Without direct sunlight, the full charge can last up to 12 hours.
This Z-Wave Plus device is compatible with the domotic controllers Popp, Fibaro (since June 2016), Jeedom, eedomus and the GPIO RaZberry card for Raspberry PI.
