The Z-Wave Alliance membership will educate integrators & installers to create Z-Wave connected home experts

The Z-Wave Alliance, a membership organisation dedicated to advancing the popular Z-Wave wireless smart home protocol, is debuting its first ever membership level aimed at the integrator community involved in smart home at CEDIA EXPO 2015. Installers interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of smart home installations will also have the chance to learn about the new Z-Wave Certified Installer Training program for the first time at the show.

"Adding a membership level in the Alliance for integrators and dealers allows those closest to the smart home customer to collaborate with a diverse ecosystem of manufacturers dedicated to creating Z-Wave solutions," said Mitchell Klein, Executive Director of the Z-Wave Alliance, "We want the Alliance to be a destination organisation for everyone - from telcos, retailers, home security providers and the installer community - interested in capitalising on the growth of Z-Wave in IoT to push adoption even further."

Membership benefits

Membership benefits include access to Z-Wave Alliance integrator forums and working groups, as well as technical resources for deployment, troubleshooting, design and testing of Z-Wave products. Once installers have completed Z-Wave certification, they will be listed on, a soon-to-be-released consumer one stop shopping centre for all things smart home. As the new integrator membership unfolds, additional benefits will be available including access to a brand new dedicated installer tool and discounts from select Alliance manufacturer and service provider members.

Z-Wave Certified installer training

Integrators who join at the new membership level will receive access to the brand new Z-Wave Certified Installer Training for up to five of their employees with the option to purchase additional passes. The training will provide installers with tools, best practices, protocols and rules for successful Z-Wave installations.

"This training was created to give installers the edge when it comes to designing, implementing and maintaining Z-Wave smart home solutions" commented Klein, "We want to help save them time and money and boost customer satisfaction by giving them the best Z-Wave experience possible."

CEDIA CEU credits

Completion of the course, which spans two interactive 90 minute tested-courses, will earn installers CEDIA CEU credits and electricians and security professionals can apply for CEUs in their specific state. The course, which will be previewed at length in four sessions at CEDIA EXPO will feature the history of Z-Wave and the Alliance as well as the fundamental concepts, foundation and architecture of Z-Wave.  It will include how-to guides on adding nodes, configuring the mesh network and working with routers. The second half of the course takes a deeper dive into interoperability, building materials, signal attenuation and other installer-specific issues surrounding designing and implementing a Z-Wave network in a real-life smart home.

The introduction to Z-Wave Certified Installer Training course at CEDIA will be offered at the following times:
