Z-Wave Alliance Supports Smart Home and Integrator Growth at CEDIA Expo 2018
The Z-Wave Pavilion will feature new pro channel products, demonstrations from emerging brands and opportunities for integrator involvement
San Diego, CA - CEDIA Expo 2018 – Z-Wave Pavilion Booth #2715 – The Z-Wave Alliance, a global membership organization dedicated to advancing the popular Z-Wave wireless smart home protocol, will host the Z-Wave Pavilion at CEDIA Expo 2018 in San Diego, California, with member companies featuring new products and services in smart home, demonstrations of integrator offerings and more.
With over 2,400 certified and interoperable products from over 700 member companies, the Z-Wave Alliance offers integrators a diverse selection of smart home and residential IoT devices to choose from. The Z-Wave Pavilion will showcase member companies exhibiting the latest in smart home innovation; Alliance members exhibiting in the CEDIA Pavilion include top manufacturers and emerging brands in the smart home such as: Aeotec, Dome, Guardian, Fibaro, Observables, Hogar Controls and more.
As the smart home market continues to grow in popularity amongst consumers, so does the opportunity for integrators to expand their business and look for new ways to reach potential customers. Recognizing this growing need for smart home support, the annual Z-Wave Fall Summit will be open to integrator members across the Alliance for the first time. Integrator members will be able to participate in the developer’s forum which includes technical training for a deeper-dive into the technology along with access to the sales and marketing tracks to learn more about how to educate customers on the benefits of a Z-Wave smart home. The Z-Wave Fall Summit will take place in Philadelphia on September 24-26, 2018.
“With smart home exploding in the market, there has never been a better time for Z-Wave integrators and manufacturers to reach homeowners. Mainstream buyers are finally realizing the value, security and convenience that a connected home can offer,” said Mitchell Klein, Executive Director, Z-Wave Alliance and CEDIA Fellow and committee chair. “Integrators who join the Alliance are part of a member ecosystem that includes the top manufacturers and ODMs in the residential IoT and have access to the wealth of knowledge and industry connections they bring. We’re excited about the growth in interest in the Alliance from integrators and we look forward to continuing to support the important work they do to move forward widespread acceptance of this technology.”
The Z-Wave Pavilion will also feature the Z-Wave Certified Installer Toolkit, a 2017 CEDIA Award winner in the “Best Hardware” category, exclusively available to Alliance members. The Z-Wave Certified Installer Toolkit helps enable installers and integrators to maintain, diagnose and troubleshoot Z-Wave networks to ensure a solid, secure mesh network is in place. Live demos of the toolkit will be available in the Pavilion during show hours.
