What is Z-Wave?
What is Z-Wave?
Z-Wave is a wireless technology that allows your home electronics to communicate with each other, and you, through a remote control.
How does Z-Wave work?
If Z-Wave connectivity is added into a product’s design, such as thermostats, lights or locks, then it becomes a ‘smart’ device.
What products are available?
There are many products available, from many well-known and established brands, making it easy for you to create the perfect smart home.
How is Z-Wave powered?
Thanks to Z-Wave being a low-energy technology, which is highly efficient, it is possible for many devices to work on battery power.
What is Z-Wave’s range?
For two Z-Wave products, the average range between them is approximately 40m (120ft), when there are no obstacles between them.
Is Z-Wave secure?
Each Z-Wave network has a unique ID, which is assigned to each device within the network. This ID is different for each hub, meaning that your neighbour cannot control any of your devices.
How many Z-Wave devices can I control?
As it is scalable, as many as 232 devices can be controlled using just one device, which should be more than enough for your home.
Will Z-Wave interfere with my Wi-Fi?
Because Z-Wave works on a different frequency, it will not interfere with your Wi-Fi network.
