Catching the Z-Wave

Sure I could start this news post out with Gnarly man, this is way cool. I leave that for ldown the read so more reads can catch my bad humour. Todays article from is a FAQ of sorts on Z-Wave wireless technology. The article is quite technical therefore quite a bit over my head, it sounds like I have some reading to do to catch up with my Home Automation tech.

From the article: 

Z-Wave is a proprietary wireless protocol oriented to the residential control and automation market. Conceptually, Z-Wave is intended to provide a simple yet reliable method to wirelessly control lights and appliances in your house. To meet these design parameters, Zensys's Z-Wave package includes a chip with a low data rate that offers reliable data delivery along with simplicity and flexibility.
