Zigbee Driver Setup

Overview

Our Zigbee plugin requires the use of a Nortek HUSBZB-1 Z-Wave & Zigbee combo interface. However, the drivers for this product are not automatically installed by Windows. Follow the steps below to install the drivers onto your HS4-powered Windows 7, 8 or 10 system. Note: Early HomeTroller S6 hubs were equipped with Windows 7. Be sure to check your OS before driver installation.
