Your home shouldn't be in the cloud. Smart electronics should run locally, privately, and continue to work even when the Internet drops out. With Atrim Stick you can build and customise your own smart home, automate thousands of devices through it, and run it all locally, privately, and cloud-free. And it shouldn't depend on it. Automate your home locally, privately, and cloud-free. Atrim Stick lets you create your own automation hub and connect thousands of devices to it.

Automation that sticks. A private and secure automation system begins with Atrim Stick. It can manage your home's lighting, HVAC, environment, security, safety, and just about anything that's electronic. Built with the latest iteration of Z-Wave Plus, the most advanced automation engine, Atrim Stick is securely compatible with over 4,000 different products. Each can be used to customise and automate your home's indoor and outdoor spaces.

Engineered as a USB adaptor, setting up Atrim Stick involves plugging it into a computer and installing software. You can use it with an existing computer or a dedicated Raspberry Pi, and with Mac, Windows or Linux. You can use it with a wide range of software, including open-source and commercial options. And, because it's running locally, you can extend your automation software beyond Z-Wave, connecting and automating thousands of other devices and platforms to the software including Alexa, IKEA Trådfri, Philips Hue, Sonos, Wi-Fi, and Zigbee.

Completely compatible Connect up to 4,000 devices from a full range of 4,000+ potential Z-Wave devices. Learn more

4,000 is Atrim Stick's magic number. Over 4,000 different Z-Wave products have been certified and released by Z-Wave makers ‐ Atrim Stick's core is compatible with all of them. It can also connect to and manage as many as 4,000 separate devices in Long Range mode (North America only) or 232 separate devices in Relay mode.

Secure communication Secured by 3 layers of S2-certified encryption. Learn more

Security enhancements between start and send. Wireless automation between Atrim Stick and connected Z-Wave devices is secured through 3 separate layers of S2-grade security. Wireless communication is AES-128 bit encrypted and the presence of connected devices is authenticated through ECDH key exchange to prevent rogue device injection.

Size does matter Can wirelessly communicate with devices up to 1.5 miles away. Learn more

Available in 2 different sizes, 2.2x0.35" in North America and 1.9x0.35" elsewhere, Atrim Stick takes maximum advantage of Z-Wave to offer a wireless control range as massive as 1.5 miles in Long Range mode. Indoor communication is also improved with Atrim Stick now able to communicate up to 150 metres / 492' across a home in Relay mode - 50% further than last-generation.

Quick smarts Connect new devices in seconds by scanning their SmartStart, QR code. Learn more

Connect new devices to Atrim Stick in seconds by scanning their SmartStart code. Using a compatible app, you can enter or scan any Z-Wave device's SmartStart code.

Cloud free Can be setup to run automations locally and without cloud processing. Learn more

The cloud goes down and so do most home automation systems. Your home shouldn't go down. Atrim Stick lets you create an automation system that isn't hosted in the cloud. It allows you to build a system with local processing, helping to prevent down-time due to Internet and cloud outages, and without the sharing of private data.
