    How long does it take to develop a Z-Wave device?

    • Ben Garcia
      Ben Garcia June 6, 2013 at 9:49 am

      End-consumer devices typically take a couple of months with controllers taking slightly longer. It comes down to whether you want to build everything yourself, or partner up with other manufacturers and solution providers to assist you in the development of your product.

    How is the ZIPR secured? Essentially, how does the customer avoid someone else being able to control their devices?

    • Ben Garcia
      Ben Garcia June 6, 2013 at 9:36 am

      Hi Jim, the ZIPR uses TLS 1.1 to ensure communication security.

    • Ricco Winther
      Ricco Winther June 6, 2013 at 9:37 am

      Hi Guyn,
      I am not sure if you can find this on Parks’ website, http://www.parksassociates.com/index.php

      It was mentioned by them recently on a conference, and in some webcasts.

    Hi Ricco,
    can you please provide more information on EU companies (Security and Telco) that are prepering to enter the connected market. How and when?

    • Ricco Winther
      Ricco Winther June 6, 2013 at 9:32 am

      Hi Guyn,
      We are under NDA with our Partners and cannot speak about this until our Partners decide to announce this publicly, as AT&T did recently.
      For a non-company specific talk about what is going on, on the European Telco and Security scene, please write me on ricco_winther@sigmadesigns.com
      Looking forward to talk to you,
      Ricco

    Can Z-Wave be used in small businesses or light commercial applications or is it strictly residential?

    • Ricco Winther
      Ricco Winther June 6, 2013 at 9:29 am

      Hi Jim,
      Z-Wave has been developed with the needs of the residential market in mind, but there is certainly no reason to not also use it in small and medium sizes companies.
      You can have up to 232 nodes in one network, but with the new IP gateways Ben told about, you can easily develop systems where multiple systems are controlled from the same user interface.
