Z-Wave Alliance, a consortium of global companies that oversees the world's largest interoperable ecosystem for wireless home monitoring and control products and services, and Sigma Designs Inc. have jointly announced a marketing certification programme. The Z-Wave Plus certification programme is intended to help consumers identify products that take advantage of the 'Next Gen' Z-Wave platform (500 Series) from Sigma Designs.

Z-Wave has led the market in interoperable devices for the home since the first product was certified in 2004. With the introduction of Sigma's Next-Gen Z-Wave 500 series earlier this year, Z-Wave saw its ecosystem bolstered with new capabilities including increased range, extended battery life, Over The Air upgrading (OTA), additional RF channels and more, all of which are backwards compatible with existing Z-Wave products.

For service providers, these enhancements also have tremendous benefits in terms of shorter and easier installations, less consumer support calls and faster time-to-market for deploying the home monitoring and control services using the Sigma Next Gen turn-key middleware suite. With this certification programme, Sigma and the Z-Wave Alliance are introducing a Z-Wave Plus series of packaging logos that will be located on every product powered by Next Gen Z-Wave, informing the consumer this product incorporates the enhanced capabilities of the Z-Wave 500 series.
