Home automation has hit the mainstream in recent years thanks to increasing advances in smart technology. Smart phones, tablets, and other internet-powered devices have become integral parts of our everyday lives. Z-Wave is a unique part of this home automation revolution. A wireless communication protocol for running a home automatically, Z-Wave allows you to control your home’s devices from your smartphone or your home security system hub.
By integrating Z-Wave smart home products into your home security system, you’ll be able to intelligently control and customize details like lighting, temperature, flood sensors, security, and more through simple voice commands.
Z-Wave products enable smart devices in your home to communicate with one another to automate residential light applications, security systems, access control systems, remote controls, and internet gateways.
The result offers you an array of automated home and home security solutions including:
Instant control over compatible home devices and appliances, including scheduling their operation.
Savings on lighting, heating, and air conditioning costs with use of recommended settings.
Round-the-clock home surveillance with automated instant alerts.
Z-Wave can help you keep your family safe and your property and possessions secure. There are a variety of features that make Z-Wave home security a solid choice for both automating and monitoring your home:
Networking – Operating out of the 908.42 MHz band, Z-Wave alarm systems can network from device-to-device without interference or range-related issues.
Scalability – Z-Wave home alarm systems can network with thousands of different products, allowing you to build onto your home security system over time.
Range – Z-Wave home security systems are perfect for larger homes because devices can piggyback from one to another in order to cover a larger area.
Z-Wave technology makes it easier than ever to get an entire security system installed and active. Here are a few core components of Z-Wave alarm systems:
Alarm monitoring gateways can connect with your monitoring service for complete home security 24/7.
Door locks and deadbolts can tie into your home security hub, allowing you to lock or unlock your front door from any location on the globe.
Motion detectors and sensors can wirelessly communicate with your smart home hub to send you alerts when unexpected activity occurs while you’re away.
Just like wireless, Bluetooth, and LAN-powered home security systems, Z-Wave can capably cover every major aspect of a home alarm system, providing an entire network of home security that is ready and reactive at a moment’s notice.
