The Z-Wave.Me Z-StickC connects a PC platform with USB interface to the wireless Z- Wave network. The interface to the Z-Wave network is a standard Z-Wave transceiver module ZM3102 implementing a serial control protocol. The USB stick connects this serial interface to the PC platform. Once the USB stick is connected to the PC the OS of the PC will create a new virtual serial device (/dev/tty.xxxx for Unix/MAC, COM X for Windows) that is used by control software on the PC to communicate with the Z-Wave network. The Z-StickC implements all necessary communication functions of Z-Wave but the functionality depends on the software that uses the Z-StickC.
