BEAVERTON, Ore. – The Z-Wave Alliance has launched Trident IoT, a technology and engineering company focused on simplifying RF development and decreasing time-to-market for connected device manufacturers.

A standards development organization dedicated to advancing the smart home and Z-Wave Technology, the Z-Wave Alliance has announced that Trident IoT will be a direct supplier of Z-Wave silicon chips and modules, offering product design and development services. According to Z-Wave, Trident IoT is now officially open for business as a U.S.-based Z-Wave device certification laboratory. 

“Trident IoT further fosters the development of new features, enhancements, and custom applications on Z-Wave Technology by offering connected device manufacturers a new direct source for Z-Wave chips and modules, along with personalized product engineering support and U.S.-based Z-Wave certification,” said Mitch Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. “I’ve had the privilege to work with many of the founders and engineers at Trident IoT over the past decade, both at the Alliance and at Silicon Labs. This industry is going to benefit tremendously from having an RF-specialized semiconductor partner.”

Trident IoT has said that they’ve assembled some of the brightest Z-Wave engineers in the world and their products are designed to meet the needs of diverse target markets, including smart homes, hospitality and multi-dwelling units (MDU).

"Trident IoT can streamline every step of the development process for Z-Wave devices equipped with next-gen advancements to the technology," says Trident IoT founder Mariusz Malkowski. "We are the supplier source, the development and engineering partner and a Z-Wave certification laboratory."

Trident IoT has joined Z-Wave Alliance as a principal member, as well as the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. Other principal members of the alliance include ADT and Vivint Smart Home. The company said their ultimate goal is to provide engineering, consultation, silicon, software, firmware and industry and government certification support for all RF ecosystems.

“Today’s announcements are monumental not only for Z-Wave, but for the industry as a whole,” continued Klein. “The mission of the Z-Wave Alliance has always been to foster innovation and broaden the ecosystem of Z-Wave devices. A milestone accomplishment for that mission was the completion of the Open-Source Z-Wave initiative in 2022. This allows developers and manufacturers to access and collectively contribute to the Z-Wave Technology stack – all to encourage innovation and development. Another milestone has been achieved today, as Z-Wave developers now have access to an additional silicon resource that will help them get their Z-Wave devices to market even faster.”
