Quick Apps are an advanced programming tool that allows you to integrate technologies outside of Z-Wave with your Z-Box Hub. Whether it's Zigbee, wifi, or solar technology, you can use the available API for your device or service to connect it to the Z-Box ecosystem. You need programming skills to execute the code and access to the necessary API documentation for the device you're trying to integrate. Quick Apps can also be used to create virtual devices on the platform to help you unlock additional functionality in automations and monitoring.

You can also use any of the existing plug-ins created for the Fibaro marketplace, including integration for Philips Hue, Sonos, Apple TV, and more.
