Q: What is the difference between Z-Wave and Wi-Fi, and Zigbee?
A: Z-Wave and Wi-Fi are different communication protocols. The three main communication systems, which are available on all Vera Controllers, are
Most cameras use Wi-Fi/LAN IP connections because they provide the bandwidth (number of bits per second) needed to send video signals. Depending on your Vera controller model and optional accessories (often called "bridges"), you can also control devices using Zigbee (another low-power mesh network technology).
A great and low-cost alternative to the existing wireless protocols is . It is designed to work with Nortek's 2GIG Radio Frequency devices. It has a frequency of 345/433 MHz.
