Silicon Labs and Z-Wave Alliance announced plans to open the Z-Wave Specification as a ratified, multi-source wireless standard available to all silicon and stack vendors for development. By expanding access to Z-Wave protocol as a standard supported by multiple semiconductor and software suppliers, the Z-Wave ecosystem will benefit both from broader technology support as well as accelerated market adoption.
The Z-Wave protocol is currently the foundation of the most mature and pervasive smart home ecosystem in the market today. With more than 100 million interoperable devices deployed, the Z-Wave ecosystem comprises more than 3,200 Z-Wave certified products provided by over 700 Z-Wave Alliance member companies.
To learn more about Open Z-Wave protocol and/or membership in to the Z-Wave Alliance, register below.
We provide smart home IoT device makers with a full range of Z-Wave protocols including Z-Wave 500, Z-Wave 700, Z-Wave LR, and the latest Z-Wave 800. You can find links to the latest software and tools available for Z-Wave development and debugging below.

The Z-Wave protocol is an open, interoperable, sub-GHz wireless communications technology designed specifically for control, monitoring and status reading applications in residential and light commercial environments. Z-Wave has two operating modes Z-Wave MESH which is a very reliable sub-GHz MESH and Long Range which operates in a STAR topology offering over a mile range. Mature, proven and broadly deployed (with over 100 million products sold worldwide), Z-Wave is by far the world market leader in wireless control, bringing affordable, reliable and easy-to-use ‘smart’ products to many millions of people in every aspect of daily life.
The Silicon Labs Z-Wave solution is an end to end solution with software and hardware building blocks for both controllers and end devices to create a full smart home IoT system. The Z-Wave software gives you the foundational features required in the Z-Wave Specification and enables you to focus on your application with no need to be a protocol expert.
The Z-Wave End Device software from Silicon Labs enables end devices such as security sensors, door locks, 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. For more custom device applications you can leverage the Z-Wave Application Framework.
The complete suite of Z-Wave certified HW and SW building blocks enables system solutions, for end device makers and controller/gateway companies, to build Z-Wave powered smart home products and enjoy the benefits of taking part in the Z-Wave Ecosystem.
The Z-Wave Controller software from Silicon Labs enables faster time to market, as it handles all connectivity and protocol details allowing you to focus on your application software and cloud connection. The Z-Wave Controller solution with Unify SDK provides features such as easy and secure commissioning, network maintenance, a mailbox for battery devices and more ensuring that your controller product is in compliance with the required functionality from the Z-Wave Alliance Specification. The controller solution is pre-certified under the latest Z-Wave certification program from the Z-Wave Alliance and distributed as a source code via GitHub. The pre-certified Z/IP Gateway option is also still available and distributed as a source code, but it is in maintenance mode.

Z-Wave is designed to meet the demands of the future smart home, hospitality and MDUs, where increasing needs for more sensors and battery-operated devices require both long-range and low power. Our sub-GHz Z-Wave solutions offer best in class security, Smart Start provisioning, battery life of up to 10 years, full home and yard coverage, customer product-level interoperability and backward compatibility.
Z-Wave is, by far, the most widely used wireless protocol for the home automation industry. It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors and cabinets, without interference from the other wireless devices you might have in your home. Z-Wave can be added to almost anything electronic, even devices that you wouldn’t ordinarily think of as “intelligent,” such as appliances, window shades, thermostats and lights.
Z-Wave offers integrators and system designers a world of business opportunities, along with the products and training to make those opportunities pay dividends for both you and your clients. Now integrators can easily deliver all the hot applications that customers are asking for, including remote home and business management, energy conservation, connected solutions for independent aging, real estate and property control and more. All with no new wiring and the confidence that comes with an interoperable standard that works seamlessly between brands.
