Frequently Asked Questions

Answers From Z-Wave Experts

Back to FAQs - General



Why aren't any of your cameras "Z-Wave". What does IP mean anyway?

By nature, Z-Wave is a radio signal that can only handle little bits of information. These little bits tell your devices what to do, give a status, and may help another device do something. That way the radio signal uses a small amount of energy, leading to efficient devices and the possibility of a battery-operated device lasting 6-12 months on its original batteries. Video, photographs, and sound require much more bandwidth and cannot 'run over Z-wave'. A wired Ethernet connection or WiFi are required to transmit video. In an effort to give the consumer one stop networking and security, they have integrated this signal into a Z-wave interface. Even more than that, camera actions (motion detection, etc) can signal Z-Wave devices via the gateway. So you can tell your living room lights to go on if the camera senses motion, giving you a clearer image. These types of networks would not be possible without Z-Wave working nicely with other protocols. IP Camera simply refers to the address that you give your device to be on your local network (similar to getting into your router to make changes).
