Aeotec's exclusive range of Gen5 products is home automation and the Internet of Things as it should be. Modern. Fast. Secure. Beautifully designed. Its benefits are numerous.
Gen5 is built upon the most tried and tested Z-Wave technology available; 500 series. Inside each Aeotec Gen5 product you’ll find a mix of Z-Wave Plus, 500 series, and the benefits of Aeotec’s 13 year+ experience in designing and engineering wirelessly connected devices.
As home automation becomes more popular, security becomes more relevant. You have to be able to trust the devices which manage your home. You can trust Gen5. Every single Gen5 device offers an optional layer AES-128 bit encryption that can further secure your Z-Wave system. That same layer can be found in Aeotec's Z-Wave S2.
50% less power use
Some of the best home control devices are battery powered. But no one wants to be constantly replacing batteries. Gen5 offers the lowest powered Z-Wave implementation yet. On average, each Gen5 product uses 50% less power than older Z-Wave devices.
Wireless that works. Aeotec perfectly engineers the antenna in each Gen5 product so that its wireless range goes 67% further. Faster. More powerfully. Gen5 features a faster communication rate between Z-Wave devices, and offers a more powerful signal without impacting on battery life.
Aeotec has completed its development of Gen5 devices; you'll find the products that we did develop below. If you'd like to see what new technology we're using and develping, please see our Gen7 Z-Wave page.
