Z-Wave is wireless communication technology. It allows all of Aeotec’s Z-Wave devices to talk to each other, and to other approved Z-Wave devices no matter who has made them. All of that communication happens reliably, without interference, without consuming a lot of power, and it all happens securely. Z-Wave uses a low-frequency, high-range wireless technology allowing Aeotec's Z-Wave products to communicate over distances as great as 492 feet / 150 metres. Aeotec's Z-Wave range are compatible with the broadest range of gateways, are backwards compatible with other Z-Wave devices whether 300 or 400 series and aren't susceptible to the wireless interface that plagues other standards such as Zigbee.
