Z-Wave Certification ensures interoperability between Z-Wave products.

Technical certification is managed through Sigma Designs utilizing independent, third-party test houses and Market Certification is managed through the Z-Wave Alliance.

"We know the smart home market has great potential in China. We have chosen to work with IDG to better serve the growing Z-Wave market and give our customers who are creating smart home experiences in China a quicker path to certification and thus the commercial market," said Raoul Wijgergangs, VP of Sigma Designs' Z-Wave Business Unit.

Sigma Designs currently has approximately 340 companies registered on the Z-Wave Plus Certification Portal, representing 35 different countries. At least 40 of those companies are from mainland China and five from Hong Kong.

"As a new certification facility, we are excited to promote the use of the Z-Wave technology in the market and are committed to facilitating the industrial deployment of the Z-Wave technology," said Dr. Li Ying, Executive Vice President of IDG.

IDG will serve as the independent, third-party technical certification test house in China beginning Oct. 9. This expands the global presence of authorized test partners and gives developers the option of using BuLogics in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Pepper-One in Zwickau Germany and now, IDG in Guangzhou China for technical certification.
