11 Z-Wave Home Automation Co’s at CES 2014 (Part 1)

Check out the first recessed Z-Wave door sensor, the Piper video camera with a home automation hub built in from Black Sumac, the Kwikset Kevo door lock (not Z-Wave) of dubious value, a forthcoming Z-Wave smart bulb and more.

Z-Wave products at CES 2014 include flood sensor from Fibaro, recessed door sensor from Aeotec, smoke detector from Enerwave, and Thermostat Display Control from Leviton.

Many of the “traditional” home automation companies catering to the custom channel will be absent at CES 2014, but you’ll find a good chunk of smart-home goodies at the Z-Wave Pavilion and just next door at the Leviton booth (formerly Home Automation Inc.).

Here are some of the companies exhibiting at the booth and a few new products they’re showing, covering the first half of the alphabet. The rest of the alphabet is coming soon.

In the following slide show, check out the first recessed door sensor with Z-Wave, the Piper video camera with a home automation hub built in from Black Sumac, the Kwikset Kevo door lock (not Z-Wave) of questionable value, a forthcoming Z-Wave smart bulb and more.

Easier, just breeze through the slide show to catch all of the companies and their latest products

MotionCo will be on the Z-Wave booth demonstrating their shade motors with native Z-Wave technology. The embedded Z-Wave motors allow for one step network integration and full reporting and control positioning to !%

Thanks Julie.  This is a great list.  It would be great to include Vera products. And the MIOS platform. Vera has very broad device interop and connection agnostic platform.

What about Securifi and their Almond+. They will be there as well.

I’ve reported on Vera extensively. Hopefully I can make time to do more.

Indeed, “me,” I wrote about Securifi last CES but this year they’re off the beaten path in the Gold lot. Here I was reporting on the Z-Wave pavilion. I don’t think Securifi is shipping yet?

Sadly, we’re not shipping yet, but we’re demoing the new Almond+ hardware and software at the show. Sadly, we’re indeed off the beaten path, as we were late getting our booth for this years show.
