The Z-Wave Alliance says its product ecosystem has surpassed 4,000 certified devices.

The smart homes systems standards development organization says its member, HOPPE AG, helped Z-Wave reach the 4,000 certified devices mark.

“Z-Wave has been at the forefront of smart home technology and a champion of security,
interoperability, and backwards compatibility for over two decades,” said Mitch Klein,
executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance in a statement.

“Our recent bevy of announcements –ratification as a Standards Development Organization (SDO), the addition of new board members, the first Z-Wave LR Certified devices, and now growth of the Z-Wave ecosystem to over 4,000 devices – all indicate that Z-Wave continues to innovate and advance the smart home market and shows no signs of slowing down.”

Z-Wave says interoperability between its products represents the cornerstone of the Z-Wave technology standard. Additionally, the organization operates on the principle that interoperability is only achieved through testing and certification.

Through its certification process, Z-Wave tries to ensure all its devices – regardless of brand, manufacturer, and chip generation – all work with each other to deliver on the promise of the interoperable and backwards compatible smart home.
