Z-Wave 700 Starter Kit Unlocks Smart Home Potentia

Silicon Labs' Z-Wave 700 platform is broadly deployed, enabling technology for interoperable smart home products and services. The Z-Wave 700 is designed specifically to meet the technical and market demands for context-aware smart home environments. The Z-Wave 700 combines low power, long range, and tools for fast development to enable context-aware smart homes with numerous smart devices.

The Z-Wave 700 wireless starter kit is a very simple and ultra-fast way to start the evaluation and development of a user's Z-Wave 700 mesh application. The Z-Wave 700 Zen Gecko wireless starter kit includes the Z-Wave software stack, sample code, and an integrated debug adapter. A single world wide development kit for end devices and gateways with multiple radio boards enable users to create a mesh network and evaluate the Z-Wave 700 module.

Silicon Labs' ZGM130S Z-Wave 700 SiP is a fully integrated Z-Wave module enabling rapid development of Z-Wave solutions. The module is an ideal solution for energy-friendly smarthome control applications such as motion sensors, door/window sensors, access controls, appliance controls, building automation, energy management, lighting, and security networks in the Internet of Things (IoT).

Silicon Labs' EFR32ZG14 Z-Wave 700 modem SoC is an excellent solution for gateways and controllers in smart home applications such as smart home gateways, smart speakers, set-top-boxes, USB sticks, and more.

The single-die solution provides industry-leading low-power Gecko technology. The EFR32ZG14 features excellent radio sensitivity that improves the range of the Z-Wave mesh network.
