With an increase of innovation in the home security area, many people are making the change for a modern home security system to protect their home. Z-Wave is one of many new technologies that has been developed in recent years to provide better security solution to residential properties around the country. The technology makes it possible for locks, lighting, and other type of devices to communicate with each other wirelessly and allowing full control using your smart phone. Many leading lock manufacturers such as Schlage and Kwikset added to their line locks that will support the Z-Wave technology.
Make no mistake, there are many smart home security systems in the market similar to the Z-Wave technology with the exception of the vulnerability level and the lack of security features the Z-Wave technology provides. Why is it important? an unreliable home security smart system can be vulnerable to hacks not to mention various methods that are used by intruders breaking into homes. However, devices that are equipped with the Z-Wave technology have been through certification and tests to ensure maximum quality. The Z-Wave technology is associated with the highest standards using high level of encryption that institutes such as banks for example use as well for their online banking system.
The Z-Wave technology is now available in thousands of home products that are made by worldwide leading name brands, so you know the technology can be trusted. The additional advantage that the technology provides is the fact that various products from different manufacturers can be used as part of the system in your home. Because all products that support the technology went through the same certification process, they will work cohesively without any problems. This means that your home can be equipped with locks from both Schlage and Kwikset and they would still be able to sync with each other in the system.
