What’s Z-Wave and why would I need it or want it?
Z-Wave is wireless home automation standard. This type of wireless communication antenna will allow you connect to other 3rd party devices in your home. This includes such devices as thermostats, window shades and light switches. Z-Wave allows nearly endless possibilities for home automation and reactions to alarms.
Here’s some potential Z-Wave scenarios:
Ability to turn on your lights during an alarm trigger from your Shield system
Pair a SCW 3-in-1 Flood Sensor with a Z-Wave valve shut off to prevent floods.
When water is detected at the Flood sensor, all connected pipes to the flood area are closed.
