Any idea why Zwave locks are more expensive than Zigbee

Recommended Posts

So I'm poking about trying to decide on which pushbutton deadbolt lock I want to purchase and I notice that Zwave locks are $20 or $30, maybe even $40, more expensive than Zigbee.   Any idea why?    I prefer the idea of Zwave as Zigbee uses the same RF bandwidth as WiFi so there might be more interference in an apartment block.

Ok, so now I can't find a good example but I know I saw it.  <smile>

I think there's such a range of pricing right now Tony...I'm not sure there's a specific reason right now.  In general, Z-Wave licensing seems to push devices up from about $10 to $20-$30...or even $40, but in the higher pricing ranges things tend to even out.

What I will tell you about Z-Wave is that every single home panel out there today that works with a security system provider...is Z-Wave.  So in lots of cases...they're just versions of those.
