Ring Protect First to Bring Z-Wave SmartStart and Security 2 Technologies to Market
Sigma Designs, a leading provider of intelligent system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for connected smart TV platforms and smart home IoT, is pleased to share that Ring has announced Ring Protect, the first products to feature the combination of Z-Wave Security 2 (S2) and Z-Wave SmartStart technologies.
Ring’s first professionally monitored alarm system deploys the latest Z-Wave advancements, S2 and SmartStart, in its base station, keypad, and sensors. Ring Protect can be self-installed by homeowners and renters, leveraging the Z-Wave SmartStart for simple setup, as devices only need to be mounted and powered up to be “magically” connected to the network.
The first implementation of the S2 framework, now mandatory in all Z-Wave Certified devices by the Z-Wave Alliance, provides security both for the Ring base station to the cloud, as well as between it and the connected devices. S2 was developed in part by cybersecurity experts, and provides peace of mind to Ring Protect customers that their security system is secure.
