Z-Wave Alliance Overview
Established in 2005, the Z-Wave Alliance is comprised of industry leaders throughout the globe that are dedicated to the development and extension of Z-Wave as the key enabling technology for 'smart' home and business applications.
United Behind Z-Wave, The Interoperable Standard
Representing a broad range of industries, channels and consumer touch points, the Z-Wave Alliance members all share a common goal -- to bring advanced, yet practical wireless products and services to market that work together seamlessly, regardless of brand or vendor. This interoperability between products and brands is unique to Z-Wave, which each Alliance member has adopted as its wireless technology of choice.
To assure this interoperability, each Z-Wave product must pass a stringent conformance test to assure that it meets the Z-Wave standard for complete compliance with all other devices and controls. The Z-Wave identity mark assures consumers, integrators, dealers and manufacturers that their products will reliably perform with any other Z-Wave device.
