How exactly does a smart home work?

Specialized wiring – not your WIFI signal – is programmed throughout the home, set to correspond to home security systems, temperature controls, entertainment systems, and much more. In other words, Z-Wave is a wireless, radio frequency protocol. A Z-Wave network is made up of multiple devices that communicate with each other to perform tasks that you’d normally need to perform manually, like shutting off exterior lights.

Everything in a smart home revolves around the controller or hub. Once a Z-Wave speaking controller is setup, Z-Wave devices can be simply added to the Z-Wave network one by one. Once the devices are added to the network, a smart home is born!
