Smart Home Protocols can be a mess, no news here. I was honestly struggling to explain the differences in a simple way and in a short video. Nevertheless, I made this video and hope it gives you a good overview. The most common Smart Home Protocols we are asked about are Z-Wave, Zigbee and 433 MHz. For the sake of simplicity, let’s say 433MHz is one protocol, which is not technically correct.
This video aims to explain the key aspects to take in consideration when comparing smart home protocols.
Multi-protocol controllers/gateways usually speak to multiple of these protocols and make them all work together, which is super nice! We have another video explaining why you need a controller, see it here: https://youtu.be/WX0XVlQYe4I
