Z-Wave Network Sniffer (ZNiffer) functionality - will display information about the Z-Wave transmissions taking place around the area where the tool is placed.
Spectrum Analyzer - will show basic information on the Z-Wave frequency range.
Global usage and language support; Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity with USB ports for expansion into future capabilities.
