HAWKING TECHNOLOGIES JOINS THE Z-WAVE ALLIANCE AND PLANS TO USE Z-WAVE TECHNOLOGY IN FUTURE PRODUCTS
IRVINE, CA - November 14, 2006 - Hawking Technologies, a leading developer of innovative wireless networking solutions for the home, workgroup and corporate users, announced today that it has joined the Z -Wave Alliance and plans to use Z -Wave technology in it's upcoming products. Zensys, the developer of the Z -Wave wireless mesh networking technology for home control, provides a fully -developed, low -cost, interoperable RF -based technology that is currently available in over a hundred wireless home control and automation products.
"Hawking's vision of the digital home entails seamless communication between multiple protocols and standards. The home of the future will not use one single RF standard, instead it will be a mix of many that each serve their own purpose in delivering content, control or monitoring. Z -Wave is the standard which we see being predominately used in home control and we plan to release a Z -Wave enabled solution very soon. We strive to innovate and create useful solutions for the home and Z -Wave provides the stepping stone for one part of the solution. The interoperability and current ecosystem of Z -Wave products in the market gives a good foundation to build on," says Jason Owen, Chief Manager of Hawking Technologies.
