In 2017, 98% of new certifications were Z-Wave Plus with overall Z-Wave Plus certifications making up nearly half of the 2100 lifetime total. Z-Wave Plus is an advanced technology platform that enhances the end-user experience, delivers top-levels of security and makes installations even faster and easier to install and set up.

Since January 2017, over 150 companies globally have joined the Z-Wave Alliance including August Home, Toshiba Visual Systems, CenturyLink further demonstrating the power of the Z-Wave platform. As the global smart home market opportunity grows, companies continue to understand the need for strong mesh networking with broad and future-proof compatibility to deliver the smart home promise to consumers.

As consumer smart home awareness rises, the availability of over 2,100 Z-Wave certified devices provides consumers with a vast array of choices and gives manufacturers looking to create an IoT residential solution an instant ecosystem for their customers. The Z-Wave Alliance is also working to ensure consumers who want assistance with the planning and installation of a smart home system can find a professional to help them. To that end, the Alliance created a membership level for professional installers (A/V integrators, security dealers, service provider technicians), training tools and a Certified Installer Toolkit to make installing Z-Wave even easier. To date, the Alliance has over 175 integrator members and counting.

"Z-Wave continues to grow exponentially and shatter records, both in certified devices available to consumers and global companies supporting the advancement of the standard," said Mitchell Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. "We know this increased momentum is due to Z-Wave's interoperability, security, network strength and diverse ecosystem; it really is a solution that's custom built for the connected home."
