ADT Security Services last week joined The Z-Wave Alliance, an open consortium of global companies dedicated to building home control products based on Z-Wave wireless technology.
“By joining the Z-Wave Alliance, we are expanding our partnerships with a number of leading companies to deliver very compelling solutions to customers nationwide,” said Don Boerema, chief marketing officer for ADT.
Z-Wave is an interoperable wireless mesh networking technology that allows an array of devices in and around the home, including lighting, appliances, HVAC, entertainment centers and security systems, to communicate. The technology enables remote home monitoring, home healthcare, safety and security, and energy conservation. Besides ADT, other companies providing access control solutions in the growing global Z-Wave ecosystem include Schlage, Black & Decker and Wayne-Dalton.
“We’re thrilled to have the world’s number one electronic security services provider, ADT, join the Z-Wave Alliance,” said Raoul Wijgergangs, chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance.
