What is Z-Wave?
Z-Wave is a world-standard wireless technology that lets all your home electronics talk to each others, and to you, via remote control. (ITU-T G.9959). Home/office automation products are being manufactured by more than 300 companies worldwide. It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors and cabinets, without interference with other wireless devices you might have in your home.
Z-Wave unifies all your home electronics into an integrated wireless network, with no complicated programming and no new cables to run. Z-Wave control is easily added to almost any device in minutes. Simply plug the device you want to control into a Z-Wave module, and "join" it to your Z- Wave network!
Z-Wave is based on the mesh network topology. Mesh network structure allows communation with none directly connected to the base station devices using other on the way devices “hopping. So that very far devices are easily accessible to users either from the control unit or from the normal switch.
