Step Up Your Security with Z-Wave Technology
Let the pros at RBM Lock & Key set you up with Z-Wave locks & security products.
The home of the future is here, and it is powered by Z-Wave. Z-Wave is a wireless technology that turns familiar household products like lights, thermostats, and even door locks into smarter versions of themselves. Once your Z-Wave network is set up, all enabled products will be able to communicate with each other and with your phone, tablet, or PC over a wireless network, giving you the power to control your home even when you’re not at home.
Wait a minute…can’t a wireless network get hacked?
You’re not alone in wondering this. Many property owners have wondered whether it is really a good idea to trust their security to a wireless network.
The reality is:
Z-Wave wireless devices operate on a secure network with the same level of encryption as online banking.
3 Z-Wave Security Products
If you want to bring your home or business security into the 21st century, here are the 3 most important products to consider.
Z-Wave Locks: Many trusted brands like Schlage, Kwikset, and Yale offer Z-Wave enabled deadbolt locksets that combine the security of a keypad with the remote access capabilities of Z-Wave. These locksets come in a variety of styles and finishes to support the aesthetics of your property.
Once you have a Z-Wave lock set, you can enjoy precision control of your locks at all times. You can check to see if you remembered to lock the door when you left the building and lock it remotely if needed. You can activate or deactivate new access codes for guests or workers who may need to access your home. Virtually all home security systems use Z-Wave technology so your new lock will fit into your system seamlessly. Most Z-Wave locks run on simple AA battery power and can run a year between battery changes.
Z-Wave Motion Sensors: Whether you already have a professional security system in place or wish to install your own, Z-Wave motion sensors will play an integral role in keeping your property secure. Simply place them on window sashes and door jambs and you will automatically get a notification on your smartphone or security system controller when a door or window is opened. The big benefit of Z-Wave motion sensors is that no additional wiring or signal devices are needed—the products are battery-powered and will connect to your existing Z-Wave network.
Z-Wave Security Cameras: Have you always wanted security cameras at your home or business, but never wanted to deal with the hassle of installing all that wiring and the cost of investing in special recording or viewing equipment? Z-Wave security cameras are the answer. They can mount anywhere with no wires and transmit images right to your computer or smartphone. Some models can even be controlled wirelessly over the Z-Wave network.
