Z-Wave Quick Start Guide

Quick Start Guide to Creating With Z-Wave:

Select a Z-Wave Development Kit that fits your business needs. There are specialized development kits for embedded designs, and also for gateway/controller designs. Development kits are available from our distributors.

Once you have purchased your development kit and signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), you will be given access to the Z-Wave Technical Site (ZTS) where you will have access to technical and support documentation and resources such as training videos and extensive the test certification tool (CTT) .

Z-Wave certification documentation and requirements are also made available to development kit owners.
