Simple wireless control
The Z-Wave protocol is a wireless, radio frequency (RF) based communications technology designed particularly for control, monitoring and status reading of household applications.
Z-Wave supports full mesh networks, enabling numerous Z-Wave devices to communicate with each other simultaneously. Z-Wave allows for secure and low power-consuming communication between approved Z-Wave devices.
Due to its interoperability, Z-Wave encompasses a broad ecosystem of intelligent products that work together between brands and models. With the advanced technology of Z-Wave, there is no interference from Wi-Fi, Zigbee, or other 2.4GHz wireless technologies in a similar band. Today, over 50 million Z-Wave products have already been sold worldwide.
The Squid.link gateways support Z-Wave Plus, which increases the security level of Z-Wave.
Due to a unique ID assigned to each Z-Wave device in a network, a gateway can never control another gateway's connected devices.
Low communication latency
Z-Wave is designed for reliable, low-latency transmission of small amounts of data (100 kbit/s maximum).
Z-Wave requires so little power that devices can operate for up to seven years on a single battery.
With Z-Wave, there is no interference from Wi-Fi, Zigbee, or other 2.4GHz wireless technologies.
All Z-Wave certified products canwork with any past, present, or future Z-Wave product.
Z-Wave devices act as part of a mesh network, where signals intended for one device are received, amplified and repeated by other Z-Wave devices.
The Squid.link gateways
The Squid.link gateways are an extremely flexible solution for connecting networks based on different technologies, including Z-Wave. The gateways are a modular platform for flexible Home Area Networks (HAN). With Squid.link gateways, you are no longer dependent on one vendor but can combine your Home Area Network exactly the way you prefer.
