Z-Wave Alliance to Become Standards Development Organization
Silicon Labs and Z-Wave Alliance announced plans to open the Z-Wave Specification as a ratified, multi-source wireless standard available to all silicon and stack vendors for development. By expanding access to Z-Wave as a standard supported by multiple semiconductor and software suppliers, the Z-Wave ecosystem will benefit both from broader technology support as well as accelerated market adoption.
The Z-Wave protocol is currently the foundation of the most mature and pervasive smart home ecosystem in the market today. With more than 100 million interoperable devices deployed, the Z-Wave ecosystem comprises more than 3,200 Z-Wave certified products provided by over 700 Z-Wave Alliance member companies.
