Z-Wave is a wireless communication protocol designed for home automation, specifically for applications in residential and light commercial environments. Its many features (low power emission; low RF, below 1Ghz- more penetrating than Wi-fi- and the support for automatic routing) make it robust and efficient. These characteristics, together with a strict certification process, guarantee a safe and reliable communication between certified devices. The Z-Wave eco-system includes over a thousand different products, manufactured by hundreds of international producers, which cover for all possible needs.
