Z-Wave® is the leading industry standard for smart home control, with over 1000 certified low power consumption devices. The Z-Wave® extension enables WeR@Home™ to communicate with a variety of connected home devices such as lighting control, thermostats, and door locks.

“We are committed to providing systems that are easy for consumers to use and for service providers to deploy,” said Ben Weinberger, Deputy CEO of Essence. “Z-Wave® provides simple connectivity and upgradability, removing the interoperability headache and letting service providers extend their offerings with ease.”

The WeR@Home™, a modular connected home package based on Essence's proprietary technology and devices can be now expanded with Z-Wave® devices thanks to the newly certified Z-Wave® dongle. The WeR@Home™ can be easily installed by consumers in few minutes with no drilling or wiring needed.
