Z-Wave 700 Series End Device Software Features and Benefits
The Z-Wave 700 Series End Device software from Silicon Labs enables end devices such as security sensors, doorlocks, light switches/bulbs and many more to benefit from the pre-certified Z-Wave applications, all certified under the latest certification program from the Z-Wave Alliance.
Z-Wave is designed to meet the demands of the future smart home, where increasing needs for more sensors and battery-operated devices require both long-range and low power. Context-aware environments are the next evolution in the smart home market, and they require technologies that have been optimized specifically for these applications.
Z-Wave creates bold opportunities for new products and applications for next-generation smart home environments. Z-Wave tools enable fast development to enable future context-aware smart home with dozens or even hundreds of smart devices.
