The Z-Wave Alliance, the standards development organization dedicated to advancing the smart home and Z-Wave technology, announced that the Z-Wave product ecosystem surpassed 4,000 certified devices. HOPPE was the alliance member that hit that milestone, which comes on the heels of the Z-Wave Alliance announcing that the first Z-Wave Long Range (Z-Wave LR) certified devices are 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 announcementsratification as a standards development organization, 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  achieved only through testing and certification. Certification ensures all Z-Wave devices regardless of brand, manufacturer and chip generation work 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 its compliant prior to the device being marketed or sold commercially.
