  • Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan

Z-Wave frequency tuning

Z-Wave devices using 700 series and 800 series generational technology may offer frequency tuning, a method the manufacturer can enable to allow installers and / or users to change the frequency a Z-Wave device uses on-demand.

Z-Wave frequencies by country

The following table shows the permitted Z-Wave frequency for each country where Z-Wave technology has been formally approved. These frequencies are multi-generational — they're the frequencies used in both 800 series Z-Wave and older versions as well.
