Fibaro… Umm… Yubii Home is here!

Fibaro’s first “Nice ecosystem” home automation center arrived. Welcome, Yubii Home!

Fibaro joined the Nice Group in 2018 (Nice is one of the big players in gate control, home security, blinds automation market). Since then, there has been a growing drive to combine the complete Nice Group portfolio in one automation platform based on Nice offered devices.

Nice is organizing all its own brands – Abode, Elero, HySecurity, Fibaro – under one platform to offer a complete home automation solution. That is Yubii. After the announcement of the Yubii App -the Fibaro Home Center application continues to live on April 20, 2021, with that name with a new look and services integrated into the Nice Group – their new smart home center, developed by Fibaro specifically for the Nice collaboration, will also appear under the Yubii brand. That is Yubii Home.

Yubii Home maybe rings a bell to those familiar with Fibaro’s solutions, as the recently released Fibaro Home Center 3 Lite isn’t just eerily similar to the outside.
Yet, the device knows more than the physical capabilities of Home Center 3 Lite, as this version is also equipped with a 433 MHz control unit capable of handling Nice’s own protocol.

An interesting feature of the protocol used in the Nice gate and shading controls is that it provides feedback on the remote controls (within a maximum of 500 meters of the controlled device) about the status of the controlled device (open, closed, partially open) and whether the command has reached its destination successfully.

The market pricing of the device is not known yet. Still, based on the pricing of Home Center 3 Lite (currently available in retails between 140 and 300 €), it may open a new market for home automation in the field of gate technology and blinds control.

Kövess minket!


"Why isn't there a remote control for the bedroom lamp switch?" This issue launched me towards the world of smart-homes in 2013 and became determined to make my home even more comfortable, safer, and - last but not least, energy-efficient. I looked for solutions on the market for years. Even after a more thorough search, I was unable to navigate the plethora of options and solutions: There was no ultimate solution in the market or a person who could see through the rapidly changing smart-home market and help me to personalize my home. I spent the last few years exploring and testing opportunities, as well as self-education. I got to know the do-it-yourself solutions, the ready-made tools, and the complete building automation systems. I tried, disassembled to understand how it works, I made all the possible mistakes that can be made in this area. I have always strived to understand and learn about the different solutions comprehensively and endeavor to be able to decide on one or the other solution in the knowledge of their advantages and disadvantages. Over time, I have noticed that others have been in a similar situation to me at the time. They faced with opportunities that overwhelm them and are unable to choose between smart-home solutions. They feel they do not have the right information. I felt my job is helping them, so I founded Smartopert Ltd. and brought the Okosotthon Guru brand to life. As Okosotthon Guru, I help those who want a smart-home to have a "tailor-to-them smart-home", regardless of brand. Installers and electricians also sought out which solution I would recommend to them because they weren't aligned. So Smopet was born, providing professionals with up-to-date knowledge of the solutions on the market to be outstanding in their field and serve their clients' interests.
