This USB Stick connects a PC or any other computing platform with USB interface to a wireless Z-Wave network. A controller software compatible to the Sigma Designs Serial API is required to use the functions of the device. This software plus this UZB realize a static controller to manage and use Z-Wave devices of various vendors. This stick works with all certified Z-Wave devices regardless of

its vendor or date of origin. The Sigma Designs Serial API specification is available to

all owners of a Sigma Designs Z-Wave SDK.

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


    This Z-Wave transceiver uses the SRD frequency range of 865-870 MHz. It complies to the Standard EN 300 220 1/2. The TX power is limited to +2 dBm. The antenna characteristics shows more or less circular radiation field. However using the device right on a notebook or other heavy device may partially degrade the signal significantly. Applying an USB-USB extender cable of min. 10 cm will always provide the best radio experience.
