Z-Wave wireless control centers are the heart and centre of a Z-Wave network.
It is possible to configure and run a Z-Wave network solely on a Z-Wave capable remote control but certain functions such as time and event triggered actions can only be accomplished with a standalone wireless control center or a PC running a home automation software.
Wireless control centers are permanently online but only take a minimum of energy for operations. They are controlled either by local push buttons or typically using a web browser via Ethernet. The web interface also enables a remote access from a mobile phone such as a smartphone.
Wireless control centers operate as static controller and are best suited to control battery-powered devices and maintain the stability of even large network configurations.
