Wireless technology can be baffling for many people looking to make the most of the smart living solutions available to home builders and home renovators these days.

Two of those jargony words are Z-Wave and Zigbee.

Essentially, these wireless standards are both alternative ways for your home gadgets to communicate with each other, rather than using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Z-Wave and Zigbee are very similar in concept but equally have their differences, so it is no surprise people get confused. We love it when our clients want to understand a little more about what happens behind the scenes to make everything work in their homes so you’ll find us sharing articles often to help you understand.

Z-Wave and Zigbee are both wireless protocols that allow your devices to talk to each other. Instead of using Bluetooth and wifi, the technology uses low energy radio waves to allow devices to remain connected to each other within your smart home.

This provides more reliability. What does that mean? It means you will have fewer issues with devices “dropping out” and fewer challenges with the distance between devices and the technology.

In a nutshell, it means you can rely on the smarts in your home to do their thing!
