What is Z-wave and how does it work?
Z-wave is a wireless technology, which is a wireless communication method that that allow you to control and monitor typical household devices such as power sockets, thermostats, lux level, motion sensors, curtain and blinds shutters, garage door, IP cameras, lighting, etc. Smart controller and Z-wave devices communicate with one-another using a wireless signal at a frequency of 921.42Mhz (AU/NZ approved RF for Z‐wave).
Smooth, stable and reliable. It is the three characteristics of Z-wave. With leading wireless technology, it realises smooth and stable control quality between devices. The unique short-wave frequency band has anti-interference characteristics, and its low power consumption and power saving. And the automatically optimized transmission characteristics make Z-wave the best choice for wireless smart home systems.
Is the installation simple?
The early installation of smart homes was complicated and required to re-lay the circuit, which was costly and time-consuming, and it was really prohibitive. But the time has changed, the technology has improved, and the smart home can be installed in one day!
Z-wave devices are simple to install, frequently Plug-n-Play. It depends on the type of product. A sensor installation is different from a wall socket module installation. For example, in order to install the switching relay or power circuit switching relay as it connects directly into your house 240V mains wiring, then you will need a certified electrician for installation. Most of the Z-wave devices are using power adaptor or battery powered, it can be easily installed by your own.
However, we provide a professional advice and have certified electricians who are familiar with our products installations.
What is the range of Z-wave signal?
The data transmission rate is 9.6 kbps, and the effective coverage of the signal is 30m indoors and 100m outdoors, suitable for narrow bandwidth applications.
Z-wave uses mesh networking allows a Z-Wave signal to “hop” through other Z-Wave products to reach the destination device to be controlled.
