Z-Wave’s home control demo launches at Cable Today and Tomorrow
By Traci Patterson

At the Cable Today and Tomorrow exhibition, the Z-Wave Alliance is demonstrating the possibilities of an interoperable home Security, Monitoring and Automation (SMA) solution. The display – which will be on exhibit until April 1, 2009 – showcases SMA products from multiple members of the Z-Wave Alliance operating together for a home control experience.

“The Cable Center’s Cable Today and Tomorrow exhibit exemplifies the importance of technological innovation to the future success of the cable industry,” said Larry Satkowiak, president and CEO of The Cable Center. “And we believe the Z-Wave Alliance’s SMA exhibit is a great example of the practical applications of such innovation.”

The solution set showcases devices from manufacturers, all connected together over a home wireless network and displayed on TVs, PCs and mobile phones for a personalized home security and control service, the alliance said. All home control devices are connected and interoperate through Z-Wave, while remote IP cameras utilize a Wi-Fi connection.
