S2's foundation is everything required for a connected home: the latest version of Z-Wave, a 67% reduction in power-consumption versus older Z-Wave devices, and wireless communication that blends impressive reliability with a wireless range that broadcasts 50% further. S2 takes all that and enhances Aeotec's Z-Wave devices with industry leading security and response time.
S2 enhances Z-Wave Plus and Gen5 with an additional layer of AES 128-bit encryption of wireless signals coupled with pro-security grade UL 1023 compliance.
The first 2 layers of security are joined by a 3rd: always-on ECDH key exchange rendering man-in-the-middle and brute force hacking virtually impossible.
ECDH and AES-128 bit reduce Z-Wave Plus' wireless data transfer; security communication now uses 66% less battery life.
Your smart home becomes seamless. Aeotec's S2 devices improve Z-Wave's wireless performance speed by more 50%, reducing latency down to milliseconds you won't notice.
