Application of Wireless Protocols in SmartWings

The SmartWings motorized blinds and shades utilize wireless communication protocols including Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Thread and Matter. However, each protocol has its own unique features, strengths, and weaknesses.



Matter, also known as Project CHIP (Connected Home over IP), is a new open-source smart home platform that has been developed by major technology companies, including Apple, Google, and Amazon. It is designed to simplify the way smart home devices work by providing a standardized communication protocol, which enables these devices to work together seamlessly. With Matter, users can control their smart home devices using a single app, regardless of the manufacturer or brand of the device. This makes it easier for consumers to set up and use their smart home systems, and ensures that all devices will work together, even if new devices are added in the future. In the near future, all SmartWings products will be launched in the Matter version, ensuring compatibility with all smart devices in your home for a seamless integration of your shades.



Thread is a low-power, low-data-rate wireless protocol that is designed especially for use in IoT devices and home automation systems. It operates in the 2.4GHz frequency band and is known for its high security and reliability. The SmartWings Thread motor can be directly connected to Apple HomeKit, simply scan the QR code to add your shades to the Home app and enjoy smart control. Thread is the native protocol used by Apple HomeKit, in addition to Bluetooth and WLAN, it will also be a cornerstone of project Matter, the future smart home standard that is currently being developed by Google, Amazon, Apple, and numerous IoT manufacturers. The thread will become the new standard in home networking.



Zigbee is a low-power, low-data-rate wireless protocol designed for IoT devices and home automation systems. It operates in the 2.4GHz frequency band and is known for its low power consumption, making it a perfect fit for SmartWings battery-powered motorized shades. Our Zigbee motor can connect directly with 5 versions of Alexa and is compatible with various Zigbee hubs.



Z-Wave is a wireless protocol designed specifically for Internet of Things (IoT) devices and home automation systems. It operates on the 908.42 MHz frequency band in the U.S. and 868.42MHz frequency band in Europe. This makes Z-Wave a popular choice for home automation systems, as it offers a wide range of devices. SmartWings Z-Wave motor is compatible with multiple systems and platforms, such as SmartThings, Home Assistant, and Hubitat, ensuring seamless integration with your home automation setup.



Wi-Fi is a high-speed, high-data-rate wireless protocol widely used in consumer electronics and home automation systems. SmartWings motorized Wi-Fi motor operates in the 2.4GHz frequency bands with fast data transfer speeds and strong signal range. No additional hub is required as it works with Amazon Alexa, SmartThings, Google Assistant, and IFTTT. Note: SmartWings Wi-Fi motor is a non-battery DC/AC motor.


Sub-1 GHz

Sub-1 GHz wireless technology refers to communication that occurs at frequencies lower than 1 GHz. This type of technology is commonly utilized in wireless remote control applications due to its ability to provide long-range communication, low power consumption, and strong penetration through obstacles such as walls. The SmartWings remote leverages this technology, allowing you to control your shades from up to 120 feet (36 meters) away, making your life more convenient.
