How exactly does Z-Wave automation work?

Smart home technology enables devices to communicate with each other by means of a centralized controller, or hub. The hub delivers alerts and updates straight to the user via an app on his or her smart device. In the case of a water alarm, your smart phone will display a simple, easy-to-read alert to let you know if flooding’s been detected – or, if you’ve programmed it accordingly, your water alarm, via the hub, can let you know if bad weather is on its way, a spike in temperature has been detected, or a sudden increase in humidity might be cause for alarm.

Most people don’t realize that the more Z-Wave-enabled devices you have, the stronger your Z-Wave network will be, because Z-Wave operates on a mesh network. This means that devices need only send their signals to the next device down the line – not all the way to the hub, whose range tends to be between fifty and a hundred feet.

All smart devices – from heating and cooling units, smart motion sensors, smart door locks, and even dimmers – self-monitor and adjust, without requiring the user’s constant input. Smart switches, for example, can be connected to a range of devices, from fans and pumps to sensors and alarms, to facilitate enhanced security, improved comfort, and a reduction in costs and energy use. Your water alarm, then, can function with other devices in order to maximize the efficiency and productivity of your home.
