Next-generation Z-Wave® 700 – New Smart Home Platform

Silicon Labs launched the next-generation Z-Wave® 700 on the Wireless Gecko platform, the industry’s most comprehensive hardware and software connectivity solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). The new smart home platform builds on Z-Wave’s industry-leading S2 security and interoperability by improving energy efficiency and adding higher performance, longer range RF capabilities. By leveraging the Wireless Gecko platform, Z-Wave 700 enables developers to create new classes of smaller, more intelligent smart home products at a lower cost and faster time-to-market.

Z-Wave 700 combines a powerful ARM® processor-based platform with large on-chip memory to enable greater intelligence at the edge and secure inclusion in less than one second. The energy-efficient Z-Wave 700 platform delivers 10-year coin-cell battery life, enabling more wireless sensor applications. Enhanced RF performance seamlessly extends Z-Wave 700 device range beyond traditional limits to the edge of the yard and throughout a multi-story home.
