 Z-Wave vs ZigBee

Z-Wave and ZigBee are not compatible with each other.  Zigbee operates on the 915 MHz frequency (in the US),  Z-Wave operates at 908.42 MHz.  Zigbee is faster with data rates at 40-250 kbps versus Z-Wave's 9.6-100kbps.

Zigbee can also support way, way more devices – 65,000+ devices, or nodes on the mesh network, in fact. Z-Wave on the other hand caps out at 232 devices, which is still plenty for most households.
