The Z-Box Hub provides consumers the option to configure their system as a home automation powerhouse, robust DIY home security system, intelligent home energy tracker, or all of the above, with no fees or subscriptions.
To support home automation newcomers and showcase the advantages of a Z-Wave-powered smart home system, each kit has been curated to feature an array of sensors and devices from the comprehensive portfolio of Zooz solutions, each centrally operated by the Z-Box Hub.
The Z-Box Security Kit empowers users to build a DIY security system at their own pace. Featuring an online interface and hub, the kit comes with two Zooz Z-Wave Plus XS open/close sensors, one Zooz Z-Wave Plus motion sensor, and one Zooz 800 Series Z-Wave Long Range DC signal sensor that acts as a smart bridge to analog smoke and CO detectors.

A smart flood/water protection system can be the difference between thousands of dollars in water damage and a safe, secure home. The Z-Box Flood/Water Protection Kit empowers users to safeguard their home against water damage with reliable, Z-Wave backed technology and includes one Zooz Z-Wave Plus Titan water valve actuator and two Zooz Z-Wave Plus water leak sensors.
When deployed in conjunction with the included water sensors, the Titan valve actuator is a retrofit solution that does not require any tools for installation and can be used to shut off the water valve if water is detected. The kit also includes a wired leak probe that allows the Titan to protect the area around it even without any wireless connectivity. The Zooz Flood/Water Protection Kit is available now for a sale price of $279.80.
Having a smart garage door system is convenient and provides additional peace of mind. With the Z-Box Smart Garage Door Kit, users can monitor and control the garage door from anywhere, receive notifications if the door is open at the wrong time of day or night, and close the door with the touch of a button on a smartphone.
This kit includes one Zooz Z-Wave Plus Multi-Relay, which can automate up to three garage gates, as well as two Zooz Z-Wave Plus XS tilt/shock sensors which can be deployed to instantly upgrade nearly any garage door and controller combination and make it smart.

While each of the Zooz smart home kits has been designed to provide customers with a hurdle-free entry to the realm of smart home connectivity and control, they can also be upgraded and enhanced along the way. As a Z-Wave controller, the Z-Box Hub works with the full portfolio of Zooz devices but also features interoperability with any certified Z-Wave device within the growing ecosystem of over 4200 devices. This certified interoperability enables users to choose and enroll any Z-Wave device, regardless of manufacturer or silicon generation, further empowering them to build their smart home system on their terms.
