Z-Wave is a wireless communication protocol designed for home automation and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It operates on a low-power mesh network that allows various devices to communicate with each other and with a central hub or controller.
The typical range of Z-Wave devices is about 30-100 feet (9-30 meters) indoors, but this can vary depending on the specific devices and their environment.
To extend the range of a Z-Wave network, you can use Z-Wave repeaters or range extenders. These devices act as relay stations, receiving and retransmitting Z-Wave signals to help them reach devices that are located further away.
It’s also worth noting that newer versions of Z-Wave, such as Z-Wave Plus and Z-Wave Long Range, have improved range and performance compared to older versions. Z-Wave Plus, for example, can provide up to 50% more range and over 250% more bandwidth than the original Z-Wave protocol.
There are many different Z-Wave devices available from various manufacturers. Some popular examples of Z-Wave devices include:
⦁ Smart switches and dimmers for lighting control. For Example, Aeotec ZW078 Heavy Duty Smart Switch Gen5.
⦁ Door locks and deadbolts for home security. For Example, Kwikset 914 SmartCode Traditional Electronic Deadbolt.
⦁ Motion sensors and contact sensors for detecting movement or opening/closing of doors and windows For Example, Aeotec TriSensor ZWA005.
⦁ Smart plugs and outlets for controlling electrical appliances. For Example, Aeotec ZWA023-A, Smart Switch 7.
Z-Wave is compatible with a wide range of smart home devices, and the list of compatible devices is constantly expanding as new ones are developed and released.
