What is Z-Wave?
Z-wave is a wireless technology that allows your smart products to communicate. Products become "smart" once the Z-wave technology is installed within the design. They use low-power radio waves that can travel through walls, floors and furniture. This means no messy and costly cables are required.
What products are Z-wave capable?
They are a huge selection of Z-wave products available for your Smart Home, with around 1300 products from over 350 manufacturers. Have a look at our Products page for a selection, including lighting dimmers, motion detectors and smart plugs.
How is Z-Wave powered?
Z-wave is a low-energy, efficient technology, meaning many devices work on just battery power. These can usually last for a year or more without replacement. Others plug into the wall or are wired into your lighting.
How many devices can I control?
You can connect up to 232 devices from a Z-Wave Home Controller.
What is a Home Controller?
A Home Controller is the hub of the system and the "brain" of your Smart Home. All of your devices will be connected through this and you can control and monitor your home from anywhere in the world.
What is Z-waves range?
The average range of between two Z-wave products is typically 40m, without any large obstacles. However, Z-wave runs on a mesh network, meaning the signal one from device can \"hop\" along the signal of another until it reaches its destination. This means the system will still work on a large home.
Will it interfere with my Wi-Fi or any other devices?
No, Z-Wave works on a different frequency, so it won't interfere with Wi-Fi or other common household signals.
Is the system easy to operate?
Yes, if you can use a smartphone or tablet, you will be able to control your Smart Home.
