Unlike ZigBee, Z-Wave is based on technology owned by a single company. This proprietary technology is not available on equal competitive terms to multiple semiconductor manufacturers and limits competition and constricts the supply chain.
ZigBee is an open, publicly available standard equally available to all. As a result there are multiple competitive sources of supply for ZigBee semiconductors creating more choice for product manufacturers. ZigBee also offers more performance at a lower cost, and provides more standards for use in other markets including health care, energy management and home automation.
