Z-wave’s advantages for home automation
- Ability to mix & match devices from different manufacturers. All Z-wave devices are compatible with one another. There are literally thousands of Z-wave products on the market.
- Less interference & fewer disconnections. When it comes to Z-wave devices, the more the merrier. Each one amplifies the network signal, which lets you easily create robust connectivity. Z-wave networks also operate on a dedicated frequency, which means there’s less interference than what you get on busy Bluetooth and WiFi networks.
- More secure technology. While no technology is completely unhackable, security is a major priority for Z-wave developers. It uses the same encryption measures as online banking.
