Powerline manufacturer and the Z-wave alliance consortium will come together to premier new range Powerline networking specialist devolo and the Z-Wave alliance, a leading consortium for the ‘Internet of Things’ enabling technology, will present the new devolo Home Control range at the Broadband World Forum 2014 event from 21st – 23rd October in Amsterdam. The Home Control range, which will feature on the consortium’s stand, is devolo’s first smart home solution and is based on the international Z-Wave® standard. Home Control is the first DIY smart home technology focused on providing customers with greater convenience, security and energy efficiency. The first line of products in the range includes movement and smoke detectors, radiator thermostats and switchable power outlets, all controlled and configured using the new intuitive ‘my devolo’ application. devolo relies on the wireless communications protocol Z-Wave® to ensure uninterrupted communication between all its smart home components. The use of this technology allows components to be connected throughout the home without them being obstructed, thanks to its use of a sub-gigahertz wireless frequency range. Z-Wave® also offers a high security standard which protects sensitive areas of the home, while devolo also integrates dLAN® Powerline technology into the Home Control central unit. This enables efficient integration into the home network and is particularly attractive for 10 million existing devolo customers. The Z-Wave Alliance is a consortium of over 300 leading manufacturers and service providers worldwide that are dedicated to interoperable wireless control products based on the Z-Wave open standard. Z-Wave is a key enabling technology driving the "Internet of Things." devolo Home Control will be demonstrated at Broadband World Forum 2014 at the RAI exhibition centre, Amsterdam, from 21st – 23rd October, at the Z-Wave alliance booth number F34. www.devolo.co.uk
