This device is a security enabled Z-Wave Plus product that uses encrypted Z-Wave Plus messages to communicate to other security enabled Z-Wave Plus products. Z-Wave TM enabled devices displaying the Z-Wave TM logo can also be used with this device regardless of the manufacturer, and this device can also be used in other manufacturer’s Z-Wave TM enabled networks. This device must be used in conjunction with a Security Enabled Z-Wave Controller in order to fully utilize all functions.

Repeaters will re-transmit the RF signal to ensure that the signal is received by its intended destination by routing the signal around obstacles and radio dead spots.
