Z-Wave is a wireless technology that lets smart devices talk to one another. Household products, like lights, door locks and thermostats are made “smart” when Z-Wave connectivity is added inside the product's design, giving them the capability to communicate and perform the desired function.
If you want to buy a Z-Wave-based smart home solution, you can start by choosing a Z-Wave hub as part of your first purchase. The hub becomes the brain of your smart home, connecting you and your devices via an app on your phone, tablet or computer. Once you select your hub, you can start selecting more Z-Wave devices to complete your system such as: door locks, lighting, thermostats, sensors and much more.
