Z-Wave is a simple standard for wireless communication that enables home automation devices to communicate with each other. Find out more about Z-Wave and learn how Develco Products uses this protocol.
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.
Develco Products is a member of the Z-Wave Alliance - a group of more than 375 companies that manufacture wireless home control products and services based on the Z-Wave standard. Develco Products’ Squid.link Gateway is one of these devices.
Key features 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 can work 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.
