A system with Z-Wave Lights has access to several monitoring and automation options. 

Some features available with Z-Wave Lights include:

  • Sending commands to turn lights on/off and set dimming level via web or mobile apps.

    Note: Use of the dimming feature requires use of Z-Wave appliance module or Z-Wave switch capable of dimming.

  • Creating automated light schedules to have specific lights turn on and/or off at certain times, including sunrise and sunset, for specified lengths of time.
  • Creating rules so a specific light turns on if a certain sensor is activated.
  • Creating event-triggered light rules based on arming/disarming and system activity and also set up custom automation rules.

Note: All of these features can also be used to turn on/off other devices that are plugged into a Z-Wave appliance module or Z-Wave-enabled power outlet.
