Simplify your routine with wireless Z-Wave technology

By embracing home automation, you'll add minutes to your day.

What is Z-Wave?

Z-wave is a wireless technology uniquely suited for home automation devices. Operating at a lower frequency (about 900 MHz) than Wi-Fi or Bluetooth (about 2.5 GHz), Z-wave frequencies are less likely to to be interrupted by other devices running at the same time, giving you smooth, continuous coverage and hands-free control over your home.

How does Z-Wave work with Vivint?

Z-wave functions by linking compatible devices via a centralized hub. The Vivint SkyControl™ panel acts as this Z-wave “mothership,” connecting your Vivint-compatible Z-wave devices for unparalleled control over your household. Once your home automation devices are synced to SkyControl, you can tweak settings from anywhere via the Vivint Sky™ app.

Climate Control

Z-wave smart thermostats—like Vivint’s Element™ Thermostat—use a reliable Z-wave frequency to learn from your daily routine and adapt to your lifestyle.

Door Locks

Using Z-wave technology, advanced features like smart door locks and the Z-wave Doorbell Camera work to provide greater security over your home.

Lighting Control

With Z-wave enabled lighting, you can switch your lights on or off from almost anywhere through the mobile device already in your pocket.

Maximize control with smart home automation

Z-wave wireless technology gives you the best bet at a consistent climate in your home. Since Z-wave smart thermostats use a low wireless frequency, devices using Wi-Fi won’t interfere. That means you’ll experience less interruptions in service and more reliable comfort in your household.

Vivint Smart Thermostat. Not all smart thermostats are created equal. Unlike Nest Learning Thermostat and the EcoBee3, which use the same Wi-Fi signal as the majority of your other devices and can easily overwhelm slower connections, the Vivint Smart Thermostat uses the efficient Z-Wave frequency, dedicated exclusively for use by home automation devices.

Z-Wave technology puts your comfort first.

Imagine getting home from work and your thermostat automatically turns up the heat a couple degrees as you settle in to watch a movie. Through the power of Z-wave technology, smart thermostats like the Vivint Element Thermostat study your daily temperature adjustments and adapt settings to your routine for increased energy savings and a lower monthly bill.

  • Smart learning technology adapts to your daily patterns automatically

  • Z-wave frequency means you won’t overload your Wi-Fi signal

  • Save money and help the environment with energy-efficient settings
