Sigma Designs, the world’s leading provider of the Z-Wave technology, announces the availability of approved frequencies by the government bodies in 23 new territories. Spanning the Central and South American regions as well as parts of the Caribbean, Z-Wave frequencies are approved for use in the 23 countries and territories listed in the chart below.
The rapid proliferation of the Z-Wave standard across the globe has increased demand for frequency availability in new regions. With recently announced milestones of 40 million Z-Wave IoT devices shipped worldwide and 1350 certified devices, the Z-Wave ecosystem continues to dominate the smart home and lifestyle security markets. Establishing the approved frequencies allows IoT manufacturers to bring Z-Wave products to fruition in these new markets. The addition of these approved frequencies brings the total number of countries and territories where the Z-Wave wireless standard is available to 86 and now includes representation on every major continent.
“We have established these frequency approvals through the local regulatory bodies in the region and are thrilled to finally bring Z-Wave to these markets,” said Raoul Wijgergangs, Vice President of Sigma Designs’ Z-Wave business unit. “The demand for Z-Wave products and services has grown rapidly in many of these areas and we hope these approvals will spur tremendous growth in their respective smart home and automation markets.”
Z-Wave is fully interoperable between all brands and is fully backward-compatible between versions. Z-Wave products are available direct to consumers through major retailers and e-tailers and are featured by leading home security providers and telecommunications companies worldwide.
