Z-Wave Product Ecosystem Surpasses 4,000 Certified Devices

Certification ensures all Z-Wave devices — regardless of brand, manufacturer and chip generation — work harmoniously with each other to deliver on the promise of the interoperable and backwards compatible smart home.

BEAVERTON, Ore. — The Z-Wave Alliance, the standards development organization dedicated to advancing the smart home and Z-Wave technology, announces that the Z-Wave product ecosystem has surpassed 4,000 certified devices.

Alliance member HOPPE AG had the honor of hitting the milestone which comes on the heels of the Z-Wave Alliance announcing the first Z-Wave Long Range (Z-Wave LR) certified devices have begun hitting the market for implementation into smart home systems.

“Z-Wave has been at the forefront of smart home technology and a champion of security, interoperability and backwards compatibility for over two decades,” says Mitch Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. “Our recent bevy of announcements — ratification as a Standards Development Organization (SDO), the addition of new board members, the first Z-Wave LR Certified devices, and now growth of the Z-Wave ecosystem to over 4,000 devices — all indicate that Z-Wave continues to innovate and advance the smart home market and shows no signs of slowing down.”

Interoperability between Z-Wave products is the cornerstone of the Z-Wave technology standard; interoperability is only achieved through testing and certification, according to the Alliance.

Certification ensures all Z-Wave devices — regardless of brand, manufacturer and chip generation — work harmoniously with each other to deliver on the promise of the interoperable and backwards compatible smart home.

Certification of devices to Z-Wave standards is required as part of the Trademark and Distribution License agreement for all Z-Wave Alliance members and every device must pass a series of tests to ensure that is it compliant prior to the device being marketed or sold commercially.
