Get answers to your technical questions and insights into overcoming common challenges, directly from engineers and bon-a-fide Z-Wave experts.

Build Your Z-Wave Community

The Z-Wave Alliance Summit is your chance to connect with your industry peers. As Z-Wave Member Agnes Lorenz from Zooz put it – “Connecting with other members of the Alliance has been one of our most valuable takeaways from attending. Being a small company, it’s challenging to reach bigger players in the industry to establish partnerships. We were able to start some important conversations and kickstart integrations for our products with much larger companies thanks to some valuable face-to-face time in a less formal setting.”

Free Pass to Get into the Technical Weeds

“Technology changes fast and no one knows this better than Z-Wave Alliance members. Getting to take a few days to dive into all the technical specifications of Z-Wave is valuable for every business. Attending gives you an inside look at what’s ahead from command classes to the latest source code project updates and so much more. Not only that, but you can also participate and help contribute to the evolution of the protocol,” said Kevin Kraus, Z-Wave Alliance Treasurer.

Stay tuned for the full agenda to see all the exclusive sessions that will allow you to get into the technical weeds and bring back valuable insights to your team.

The Invaluable After-Hours Conversations

We all know some of the best conversations happen without a formal agenda. End the day connecting with your Z-Wave friends, discussing the current state and exciting future of Z-Wave Technology.

“Late-night discussions with a mixed group of Z-Wave veterans, newcomers, and complete outsiders comprise some of my favorite summit memories from over the years. It always brings about news and unexpected perspectives. It’s also a safe space to vent and connect over shared expectations and frustrations around the industry,” said Z-Wave Alliance Chairman, Avi Rosenthal.

The Z-Wave Alliance Summit and Unplug Fest promises to be an invaluable experience for anyone involved in the Z-Wave ecosystem. Whether you’re a seasoned developer, a product manager, or interested in getting more involved in the smart home technology industry, this event is for you.
