    Default Fibaro and MK Grid or RFx433 and lightwaveRF

    I'm in the process of setting up a Z-Wave system in my new apartment, I have a Vera3 am iRule as the controller with a few plug in modules, I've just ordered a RFx433 and plan to use this with Rollertrol motors to control blinds.

    Im in two minds about using the RFx433 and Lightwave RF to control lighting or should I use Fibaro modules with MK Grid switches?

    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Why limit yourself to one or the other? The RFxtrx433 is easily plugged into the Vera with a very well developed and supported plugin...

    I can't fail the Fibaro's though, other than their price

    I've already purchased the RFX433 to use with my window blinds, the main reason for my question is will I lose functionality with lightwaveRF? I want uniform light switches around the house so it needs to be one or the other!

    What functionality do you think you will lose? The only things I can think off are the lack of 'status' on LWRF and that your Vera will allow 'if this then do that as well', ie have some programming logic to operate scenes.
