This USB Stick connects a PC or any other computing platform with USB interface to a wireless Z-Wave network. The platform must run a Controller software based on Z/IP from Silicon Labs. One example is Z-Ware from Silicon Labs, available free of charge from their website. This stick works with all certified Z-Wave devices regardless of its vendor or date of origin.
The device implements a virtual serial interface used by the Z-Wave application. Linux and Mac OSX has a built in device driver for the stick and will create a new device named like /dev/cu.usbmodemfa131 (OSX) or /dev/ttyACM0 (Linux). Windows enumerates a new COM device but may require a device driver uzb.inf available at www.z-wave.me.
