Hanover/Cologne – March 05, 2014 – The Z-Wave Alliance welcomes Cologne-based software specialist GreenPocket as a new member. The company’s smart home and smart meter software will now communicate with 1,000 certified products based on Z-Wave. The advantages of the world’s largest home control network will be presented by the Z-Wave Alliance from March 10 to 14 at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany. Numerous alliance members will have their intelligent home control solutions on display at association booth A40 in Hall 13.
The “GreenPocket Smart Home” solution allows users to intuitively control their networked home automation components. The interactive design of the smart home software creates an entirely new user experience in which all desired devices can be integrated easily and quickly into the intelligent home. GreenPocket helps the Z-Wave Alliance continue to develop Z-Wave as the wireless standard for smart home and business applications.
“We are proud to be a member of the Z-Wave Alliance. Together with the alliance, we want to promote technological exchange in the smart home sector and advance the development of the smart home market”, explains Dr. Thomas Goette, CEO of GreenPocket. “We are also planning future product and service cooperation agreements with other members of the Z-Wave Alliance.”
“The members of the Z-Wave Alliance offer their customers a critical advantage because they do not have to settle for a single provider when they select their devices. Their smart home is flexibly expandable as a result,” said Mark Walters, chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance. GreenPocket is one of the largest drivers of innovation in the German smart home market. A cooperation agreement with the Z-Wave Alliance, the world’s largest ecological system for wireless products, therefore provides both sides with many advantages.
The Z-Wave Alliance demonstrates its position as global leader once again at CeBIT in Hanover. At association booth A40 in Hall13, the home control providers Aeon Labs, Vision Security, Philio Technology, Flat-Out Technologies, NorthQ, Poly-Control and TKB Home will demonstrate their Z-Wave innovations. A special feature of the Z-Wave standard is interoperability. This not only allows the gateway in the smart home to communicate with the individual devices; it also connects the devices with each other. The result is a Z-Wave network structure that enables trouble-free and manufacturer-independent interaction between all home automation components.
Mark Walter, chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance, will be available for interviews and happy to answer any questions from journalists, professional visitors, and others who are interested at the conference from March 10 to 14 in Hanover. In addition, Walters will be giving a talk on March 13 at 10:00 a.m. in the Smart Home & Communications forum in Hall 13 entitled “Home Control Innovations in the Mass Market”. In addition to the participants at the association booth, the following Z-Wave Alliance members will have their own booths: Buffalo Technology (Hall 15, Booth D52), Cuculus (Hall 13, Booth A54), Everspring Industry (Hall 13, Booth E84), Fibar (Hall 13, Booth A38), Good Way Technology (Hall 13, Booth B24) and Z-Wave Europe (Hall 13, Booth A38).
