Certified vs. Compatible

We get questions all the time asking which products will work with Nexia, how “Nexia Certified” products differ from “Compatible” devices and if any available Z-Wave product sold by other retailers will work with Nexia.

To make it easy, we put together a list of products that we’ve verified currently work with Nexia. These products fall into one of two tiers, Nexia Certified products and Compatible products.  The difference is based on the level of functionality and validation. 

*Nexia Certified Products are both Z-Wave and certain Wi-Fi devices that have passed Nexia’s rigorous testing for advanced integration to ensure a reliable and streamlined user experience.  Also, the product may offer additional features and functionality beyond the basic functions. We only sell Nexia Certifed devices on our Products page.

*Compatible Products are Z-Wave only devices that comply with the Z-Wave open architecture standards. At a minimum, the basic product functionality is offered through Nexia.  For example, a water leak sensor product may also have a built in temperature sensor. The main water leak detection function should work with Nexia, but the temperature sensor may not since it is a secondary function of the device. 

Following is a list of both Nexia Certified and known Compatible devices.
