Denver, CO – September 5, 2019 at 12:00 pm EST – The Z-Wave Alliance, a global membership organization dedicated to advancing the popular Z-Wave wireless smart home protocol, will host the Z-Wave Pavilion in booth number 1743 at CEDIA Expo. The Z-Wave Pavilion features member companies exhibiting new products and services in smart home along with demonstrations of the award-winning Z-Wave Certified Installer Toolkit. The Z-CIT provides integrators with a diagnostic and repair solution for any Z-Wave installation and can be left behind for remote customer support.

“Between SmartStart and our Certified Installer Toolkit, Z-Wave products are incredibly easy to install, support and update making them very attractive to the integrator community,” commented Mitchell Klein, Alliance executive director and CEDIA 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, “The debate between DIY and pro installation in the smart home is over – while consumers are putting these systems in themselves, there are an equal number who want the support of a tech professional. We look forward to talking to integrators about how their businesses can benefit from the huge demand that is coming.”

To that end, the Z-Wave Alliance will also conduct CEDIA education and speaking sessions for industry pros to learn more about Z-Wave, smart home trends and opportunities, hear about Z-Wave installations, and more.
