A Survey of Z-wave Wireless Sensor Network Technology

Authors(1) :-Pavan A C

Z-wave technology as a wireless sensor and control network is one of the most popularly deployed wireless technologies that too in recent years; this is because Z-wave is an open standard lightweight, low-cost, low-speed, low-power protocol that allows true operability between systems. It features to meet required functionalities thereby finding applications in wide variety of wireless personal area networked systems such as home/industrial automation and monitoring systems. Although the Z-wave design specification includes security features to protect data communication confidentiality and integrity, however, when simplicity and low-cost are the major goals, security suffers. This paper gives the general survey of the Z-wave as a wireless sensor network based technology, which provides the readers with the general overview of Z-wave network technology.
