4.0 out of 5 starsDon't be fooled by the title

By T. C. Schreijer on 2018 4th Edition

This is a very comprehensive book on Z-Wave. I have no idea why it's called 'basics', probably one of many spelling errors in the book (it is, as others have noted, pretty horrible). But if you are serious about learning z-wave then this is the most comprehensive book available at the moment. It details the several layers the z-wave protocol has and plenty of good insights into releases of the protocol (SDK's), so for someone only looking for 'basics' it might even be too technical. Then again, the technical parts can be easily skipped.
