We are ready to create a device according to your specifications: fast, inexpensive, with low risk.
How to lower the risk
Creating a new device is always a thriller. You are dreaming about Red Dot Design award, but what if nobody will buy it? The risk is enormous. To reduce risks we follow these steps:
Check technical feasibility
Produce a small number of smart devices for showrooms and test sales.
Test the market, measure demand, collect feedback
Adjusting to market
Improve your marketing approach and software and hardware features.
Produce devices for the upcoming test.
Conduct the test. Measure improvements in marketing, sales and influence on the brand.
Repeat 3 previous steps until you are sure the product is ready.
Certify your product.
A successful product.
Produce in series!
The main idea behind the process above is gradual increase of involved costs. Inital steps have to be not expensive and short. But the deliverables of the steps should be as much as possible closer to a real product.
We deleloped dozens of new products. Along with creation of every new device, we improved the tools for the process facilitation. With our tools even a middle-level engeneer is capable to create a device in a reasonable time.
Tools to save time, costs and effort
Here you can find the summary of how to facilitate device creation.

Z-Way SDK is an IoT hub software and SDK. You won’t have to hire a high- level professional to implement the transport protocol or mandatory components such as voice assistance integration, remote access, apps store and others. Your team could be focused on creating the customer values. Follow the link to explore Z-Way deeper.
|Z-WAY SDK EXISTS AS
|Best for the swift creation of a branded hub. All your customer
needs are already included: voice assistance integration, remote access, apps store and other.
|Best for creating hubs with minimal hardware requirements and integration in your existing IoT hub.
|Smart Home protocols
|RaZberry • UZB • PCIe • Z-Station • your own hardware based on SiLabs ZGand MG-series
Your own automation logic
Your own interface
Integration with your software using C API

Z-Uno is a rapid prototyping board. Leverage it to create a technical prototype within a week. Technical prototype is assembled on a breadboard. It proves that your general concept is right.
Z-Uno has it's own website with deep technical description and project examples. Z-Uno is like an Arduino with Z-Wave inside.
After a feasibility test, the company management has to observe a device prototype. We provide you with a Z-Uno module for this stage.
Z-Uno Module is a tiny version of Z-Uno designed to fit in your devices. It is fully compatible with Z-Uno sketches. Designed for the SMD production process. With our Z-Uno smartification module, you don’t have to become a smart home professional.
Z-Uno manages all basic smart home functions: energy efficiency, security, ease of installation, mesh network. You can focus just on programming the core functions of managing your device. The time it takes to make your device compliant with the Z-Wave ecosystem is about a week. If you wish us to assist you in the creation of a prototype, please adress your query to email@example.com.
Z-UNO ECONOMY CALCULATION
For the calculations, we compare in-house development of a smart device versus Z-Uno utilization:
- Z-Wave developer fee:
> 3,000 €/m. + taxes + overheads
Total: > 6,000 €/m.
- the minimal time to create a unique smartification module is 6 months
- purchase components (~7 €/unit): native Z-Wave module
For a series of fewer than 3,000 pieces, Z-Uno is less expensive and way less risky
Z-Uno sketch can be flashed to SiLabs Z-Wave 700 and 800 series module and chips. The operation requires our programmer.
Z-Wave.Me Programmer flashes SiLabs modules:
- Z-Uno sketches to Z-Uno Modules and ZG-series
- Z-Wave firmwares to ZG-series
- Zigbee, OpenThread and BLE firmwares to MG-series
- BLE firmwares to BG-series
Handles S2 security keys creation and QR-code printing. Multiple programmers can be driven by the same software to work in parallel mode to flash simultaneously up to 20 chips on a single PCB (for multiplicated PCBs).
The Z-Wave.Me programmer helps to protect your firmware: stores your firmware securely and counts the number of devices burned.
Easy in operation: can run together with a PC software or in a standalone mode (flashing is initiated on a button press).
Z-Wave.Me provides special firmwares and tools for FCC and CE RED certification, as well as Z-Wave certification assistance.
With our SDK your chance to certify your device is extremely high.
If you wish us to assist you in the Z-Wave certification, please adress your query to firstname.lastname@example.org.
