AFFING – 8 February 2019 – ABUS takes security and privacy in the development and production of IoT products very seriously. This is confirmed by the awarding of the AV-TEST logo "Geprüftes Smart Home Produkt“ (i.e. „Tested Smart Home Product"), which the manufacturer has now received from the Magdeburg Test Institute for the ABUS Z-WAVE Gateway. This was preceded by a rigorous product test that confirmed IT security against common threat scenarios. Part of the test program was also the conformity to the valid DSGVO.

"The IoT Lab of AV-TEST has subjected the Z-WAVE Gateway to extensive testing in the certification process. In doing so, the ABUS Z-WAVE Gateway passed all necessary tests successfully, so that we can award the certificate „Geprüftes Smart Home Produkt“, explains Maik Morgenstern, CTO and Managing Director of AV-TEST.

Customers can either use the Z-WAVE Gateway to set up a completely new smart home network, for example with ABUS Z-WAVE devices, or connect their existing Smartvest wireless alarm system securely via the Z-WAVE Gateway with more than 2,000 available Z-WAVE components. Thus, security functions that protect against burglary, fire, water and emergencies can now be seamlessly combined with comfort functions such as lighting or heating control. ABUS currently offers an assortment of 10 Z-WAVE components, including smoke, opening, motion and water detectors, intelligent lamps and a door lock actuator.
