The Z-Wave Alliance , Milpitas, Calif., recently announced that Z-Wave, the standard in wireless home control, will now interface with Control4, Salt Lake City. This development marks a huge milestone for Z-Wave, opening the technology to the more than one million Control4 products on the market.
"Control4's vision is to be the operating system for the connected home,” says Eric Smith, CTO for Control4. “A number of Z-Wave Alliance members have designed a Z-Wave driver for Control4 systems which allows us to expand our interoperability with additional manufacturers and ultimately expands the Control4 ecosystem, giving more choices to both installers and consumers."
"Z-Wave’s integration with Control4 is exciting news for the CEDIA channel and a major milestone in the growth of the Z-Wave ecosystem,” notes Raoul Wijgergangs, chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance. “This enables installers to integrate entertainment into best-in-class home control brands and devices. Ultimately, this means a much larger selection of home control and home entertainment products for consumers."
