Z-Station provides two serial interfaces used by the Z-Wave and Zigbee / Thread / BLE application respectively. Linux and Mac OSX has a built in device driver for the stick and will create a new device named like /dev/ttyUSB* (Linux) or /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART (OSX). Windows enumerates a new COM port device but might require a CP2105 device driver by Silicon Labs.


Z-Station supports Z-Wave and Zigbee NCP, OpenThread RCP, Bluetooth Low Energy or Zigbee NCP/OpenThread RCP (on your choice, selected by firmware update). It is also possible to use Z-Station as a Z-Wave/Zigbee/Thread repeater (special firmware required).

Z-Wave support

Compared to the standard firmware design used by almost all Z-Wave USB Sticks and other Z-Wave Host Interface hardware, the this device firmware offers several extensions and enhancements:
  • Embedded Z-Wave Zniffer tool
  • Backup and recovery function including network topology
  • Optimised transmitting queue handling to speed up transmitting process
  • Firmware update from the OS level in the field
  • Extended Wakeup Notification to extend battery life time of battery-operated devices in the network
  • Advanced statistics about network actual usage
  • Allows switching frequencies from software
  • Compatible with third-party software like Home Assistant, Z-WaveJS, OpenZWave, Domoticz, OpenHAB, Jeedom (thanks to static library mode)

Zigbee support

Zigbee is available in NCP (network co-processor) and RCP (radio co-processor) variants. Zigbee HA 3.0 protocol is supported. To work with Zigbee2MQTT you may need to update your Z-Station.
  • Embedded 802.15.4 sniffer tool
  • Optimised configuration for stable operation in large networks
  • Firmware update from the OS level in the field
  • Compatible with third-party software like Home Assistant, Zigbee2MQTT, OpenHAB

Thread support

Both Zigbee and Thread use the 802.15.4 MAC/PHY layer. OpenThread is available in RCP version.
  • Embedded 802.15.4 sniffer tool
  • Firmware update from the OS level in the field
  • Compatible with third-party software like Home Assistant, OpenThread Border Router

Matter support

Matter support requires the Thread firmware and a host application supporting Matter protocol. The Z-Station adapter with OpenThread firmware is compatible with the Project CHIP source code.

Bluetooth Low Energy support

BLE RCP firmware provides HCI serial interface. Supported by Linux BlueZ Bluetooth infrastructure.

For advanced users

Z-Station is a professional multi-protocol solution for home and commercial automation. High-quality external antennas and 1 meter USB cable allows to place Z-Station far from metal parts and achieve 3 times better range compared to classical USB dongles. The built-in Zniffer feature allows network diagnostics and debugging without additional hardware.

Ordering information

Z-Station adapter comes in two different versions depending on the transmitting frequency used:
  • ZMEEZSTATION_ZW_ZB: Version for all frequencies around 868 MHz (Europe, India, China, Russia, South Africa, Middle East).
  • ZMEUZSTATION_ZW_ZB: Version for all frequencies around 908-921 MHz (North America, Latin America, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Peru, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea)
  • ZME_ZSTATION_ZW_ZB: Version for any frequencies (no antennas included - add your own)
