Aeon Labs Z-Stick Gen5 is a self powered Z-Wave USB adapter with remote network creation capabilities (independent from external power and host microprocessor).
By being able to remotely include/remove Z-Wave devices, this greatly simplifies Z-Wave network installation.
When connected to a host controller (via USB), it enables the host controller to take part in the Z-Wave Network.
The Z-Stick Gen5 is also device firmware upgradeable by the end consumer. This enables the product to always have the latest Z-Wave protocol, capabilities and commands.
