I'm new to the raspberry community and it would be kind if you could give me some information on a project I'm planning to do.
I would like to use a raspberry as the controller for a z-wave network and maybe if possible for my sonos system. Additionally i would like to wake up my NAS (with WoL) and be able to controll everything via wifi or through the internet from all over the world with my laptop/iphone/android tablet.
So here are my questions:
Would you recommend using a z-wave stick like the one of aeon labs or should i use the razberry modul? What are the advantages?
Which OS is the best suited for this purpose? Which are well suited programms i need? Is it even possible to controll everything from different devices like apple/android/windows? I would like a programm with whom i can create my own interfaces for the devices.
It would be nice if you could give me some advice . I know a bit c++ and am willing if neccessary to learn another programming language.
Thank you in advance
