Silicon Labs have completed their acquisition of Sigma Designs Z-Wave business on April 18, 2018, including a team of approximately 100 employees. The acquisition means that Silicon Labs now comprise all short range IoT connectivity options including Zigbee and Bluetooth devices.

Security devices like cameras and motion sensors are the key driving force behind smart home automation adoption according to many buyers at the 2018 SMAhome Expo, many of whom expressed an interest in being able to monitor their home while they are away.
