Z-Wave and ZigBee Technology

Enerwave incorporates both Z-Wave and ZigBee technology which are two types of home automation and offer low-power, wireless networking for device monitoring and control. The protocol for Z-Wave is an interoperable, wireless, RF-based communications technology that operates in the 908.42MHz band, while ZigBee operates in the 2.4 GHz band according to the IEEE 802.15.4. Using home automation systems enhance the comfort, convenience, security and energy management of your home.

Wireless home automation systems including Z-Wave and ZigBee helps you create an intelligent home with affordable, reliable, and easy to use ‘smart’ products including, but not limited to:

  • Home Security panels
  • Thermostats
  • Door locks
  • Sensors
  • Lighting
  • Gateways
  • Motorized shades
  • And more…

Enerwave carries both Z-Wave and ZigBee products to give customers and providers a variety of choices in product type, style and application to ensure that you find the perfect home automation products for your project.

How Z-Wave and ZigBee Is Used?

  • Remote Home Security/Monitoring
  • Energy Savings
  • Comfort/Convenience

Consumers can remotely access, control and monitor their home via a PC, tablet or smartphone through a home automation hub that is connected wirelessly to your homes local network. The mesh element of the network means that each device within the home automation network can deliver signals to the other devices, allowing the network to be extended easily. This allows for several home automated products to connect to the network.

By using Z-Wave and ZigBee technology, you can easily program functions and control your house. For example, you can easily “shut-down” your house with a click of a button, meaning that you can turn lights off, lock all of the doors/windows and even activate alerts.

Another great feature that these home automation systems provide is that it helps the consumer save energy and ultimately money. Installing home automation systems, allows the homeowner to easily manage and monitor their energy usage remotely from their smartphone.
