Nexia™ Home Intelligence allows you to affordably manage your home your way, by utilizing Z-Wave®, a radio frequency-based technology that transforms a single device into an intelligent network that can be securely monitored and controlled wirelessly. You can start with a few Z-Wave components you may already have. But, you don’t have to stop there. With Nexia, you can expand on the number of devices you control anytime you want by simply adding more as your needs grow. The Nexia system can accommodate up to 200 Z-Wave enabled devices, so you can customize and build your home automation system gradually with lighting and small appliance modules, cameras, locks, sensors, and controls.
