Z-wave technology creates a wireless mesh network, which is a collection of devices that link up and communicate with each other without wires. With Z-wave technology, devices “mesh” together by sending signals over low-energy radio waves on a dedicated frequency.
Z-Wave devices are able to communicate with one another. Z-Wave Plus is the latest certification standard offered and gives you a high level of security and compatibility between products. Z-WavePlus has been optimized for easy set-up and installation. Z-Waveclassic is also fully interoperable but may require physically placing the smart hub near the product being added to the network.
