The 30 Top Technology Innovations of 2017

Boucherle’s Pick: Z-Wave Products Network Analyzer

Z-Wave products are evolving and expanding into our smart home environments. However, with stronger and more communication technologies in our homes and businesses, interference is an unseen reality introducing mischievous gremlins such as weak links, range issues and connected device placements.

Z-Wave Products’ Z-Wave Certified Installer Toolbox provides three applications to help make the installation successful: network health symbols that display current network performance of link stability, quality of service, latencies and troubleshooting; a packet analyzer for traffic patterns to pinpoint abnormal operations or connections; and a spectrum analyzer to scan frequencies close to Z-Wave frequencies for interference.

Wireless devices are timesavers and profit-makers if you have the tools to do it right the first time. Return service calls to “tune up” a system are both costly to your bottom line and brand image.
