Create The Smart Future With Z-Wave Labs

Z-Wave Labs is a competition sponsored by the Z-Wave Alliance to support and incentivize innovation on the Z-Wave platform. The Z-Wave Labs Program will accept applications from start-up companies and entrepreneurs looking to develop a new Z-Wave product or bring a Z-Wave product to market in categories including (but not limited to) residential, commercial, automotive, healthcare, security, energy and aging in place. Once per quarter, the program will reward one selected individual or company with a year-long full membership to the Z-Wave Alliance, as well as access to the new IoT-ready 500 Series Z-Wave Developer Kits from Sigma Designs.
