Don't be confined to just what one company can do: SCW Shield works with the Open Z-Wave Standard

Z-Wave is a wireless home automation standard that hundreds of manufacturers use.

Here's a list of Z-Wave devices and here's a support document of Z-Wave devices that we've already confirmed work with SCW Shield: Z-Wave Compatibility List.*

Our SCW Shield Elite (or SCW Shield Basic with the Z-Wave Addon) is a Z-Wave "brain." It communicates with Z-Wave devices and tell them what you want them to do.

*All Z-Wave products, if implemented correctly, should work, but we have made a list of devices that we know work. Z-Wave is the future of home automation; in 2017, there were 1700 Z-Wave products and now in 2018 that number has grown to over 2,400 products that can utilize the protocol.

Security and device automation can be complicated: that's why the greatest thing you get with any SCW system is:


American-Based Technical Support after the sale. For FREE. Forever.

Real review from Fransisco, who had this to say:

The most important part of a purchase like this is the support for technical assistance when there is a question or when there is a problem, and they always exceed expectations!


All of our equipment comes with Free Technical Support that is US based (Our Warehouse and Staff are located in Asheville, NC). We're happy to help you via chat, email, screenshare / remote support sessions, and phones. Our number is 866-414-2553 and we're open from 9-7 M-F (EST).


scw support included


We care about delivering world class service, so if you have any questions, give us a call at 866-414-2553.

We'd be happy to help you setup any of our devices. Most companies view their service teams as an area to cut costs: outsourcing labor and paying low wages. We believe the opposite - that great, memorable service brings people back and gets them to spread the word.

Our support is 100% free and never expires.

Our warranty is for 5 years.

If you don't like anything, return it within 30 days with the original packaging. No big deal.

Real Review from Joe, who had this to say:

The courtesy and politeness when contacting this company as well as their technical competence has proven to deliver the "best of the best" business models of any technical company I've ever worked with.
