What is Z-wave?
Z-Wave is the leading technology behind home automation and what is also referred to as the 'Internet of Things' (or IOT). While there are many competing home automation technologies in this relatively new industry Z-Wave offers some significant advantages and allows everyone the opportunity to have a 'Smart Home' and create their own Home Automation network.
Pioneered by manufacturers such as Fibaro, Vera, Aeon Labs and TKB Z-Wave devices communicate wirelessly over RF frequencies. Unlike other wireless home automation protocols Z-Wave acts as a mesh network insomuch that every command issues is routed through neighbouring devices if a direct connection from the home automation controller isn't possible do to their distance apart. By using the Z-Wave modules and devices as nodes within the network large distances can be covered allowing for home automation networks to operate throughout even the largest home or commercial building.
Home Automation combined with smart phones and internet connections is still relatively new however already many people have embraced the opportunities that this technology provides and have enhanced control and automation over their lighting, audio visual equipment, heating and even security.
