Note: The RBK-ZW500DEV-EMB2 has reached Not Recommended for New Design (NRND) status. For new designs, we recommend the use of Z-Wave 800 Pro Kit (ZWAVE-PK800A).

Easily Embed Z-Wave into Your Products

Prototype. Refine. Launch. Silicon Labs' Z-Wave Embedded Development Kit brings you all the hardware and software tools you’ll need to embed Z-Wave technology into your product designs. The development kit includes sample embedded applications for quick prototyping, Z-Wave protocol sniffer tools for analyzing and resolving issues, and Z-Wave RF modules for quickly building prototypes.

The Z-Wave Protocol SDK is available for download on the Z-Wave Technical Site (ZTS). Access is included with the Z-Wave Embedded Development Kit. From the ZTS, developers can access technical documentation, developer’s FAQs, known issues database, and more.
