How exactly does a Z-Wave thermostat work?

All Z-Wave devices run on a wireless network that’s separate from any other in the home. This powerful yet extremely lightweight network has the ability to connect to a range of devices, from lights and fans to thermostats, kitchen appliances, and even locks. After setting up the Z-Wave network (a straightforward project, thanks to streamlined design and a wealth of online resources), the user installs a controller or “hub,” which serves as the brain of the smart home. Once connected to the Z-Wave network, each smart device reports to the hub, which, in turn, directs information, alerts, and updates to the homeowner’s smart phone or tablet.

The same applies when it comes to the Z-Wave thermostat, which will regulate and adjust your heating and cooling automatically. You’ll inform the device of your preferences – which temperatures are most comfortable for you, for example – and then you’ll set a schedule, too. Your Z-Wave thermostat will know when you’re home and when you’re out, and will act accordingly. If anything comes up – you’re delayed at work, or you’ve got guests coming over and you need the house ready – you can simply access your smart thermostat from your smart phone or tablet. An easy-to-install app ensures that communication between you and your Z-Wave thermostat remains minimal, effective, and efficient.
