Z-Wave Plus V2 (Z-wave 700 series) compatible USB stick?

Post by Gamester17 » 09 Oct 2019 10:33

I was wondering if Z-Wave.Me have any plans to release Z-Wave Plus V2 (Z-wave 700 series) compatible USB stick relatively soon?

Presumably, the next version of UZB dongle is/will/should most likely be based on Silicon Labs EFR32ZG14 Z-Wave 700 Zen Gecko modem SoC (System-on-Chip) as that chip is among other things designed for exactly that purpose, or?

If you did not know, Silicon Labs has already announced a reference design of a Z-Wave 700 series controller USB dongle based on their EFR32ZG14 Zen Gecko Z-Wave 700 modem System-on-Chip, and that they call that reference design for "Silicon Labs UZB-7". That USB adapter (article number "SLUSB7000A") is included with Silicon Labs Z-Wave 700 Wireless Starter Kit (SLWSTK6050A).

Some software developers are working on OpenZWave support for Silicon Labs UZB-7 here:

Some more information about developing support for Silicon Labs EFR32ZG14 chips here:

PS: I'm an end-user consumer building a new DIY home automation controller and do not want to buy your existing UZB dongle if the next version has both Z-wave 700 series support as is backwards compatible with Z-wave 500 series products too.

Hi, nice information, will follow this.
But, the cost of the actual USB Stick is so less comparing to all of your devices, you may start with the 500 series ;-)

Hi buddy, is there any specific list of devices line up (list) you will recommend?
