This article talks about Z-Wave communication protocol.


Z-Wave is the communication protocol that Oomi uses. It's like saying Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi.


There are two important qualities of Z-Wave:

  • Low Power Consumption: Z-Wave uses a small amount of energy to communicate with devices. This is important because otherwise the smart devices in your home would be bulky.
  • Mesh Network: Z-wave devices repeat the signals they receive, essentially bouncing the messages to devices that are further away. This makes your network bigger and more reliable.
