In light of social distancing and travel restrictions, the Z-Wave Alliance has announced a new webinar series hosted by its members, offering education, training, and insight around hot topics in Z-Wave and the larger smart home and IoT ecosystem.

The Virtual Academy sessions consist of online training and education sessions for smart home and IoT industry professionals. The webinars, hosted by various Alliance member companies, will cover a wide range of topics and perspectives, from manufacturing best practices during a pandemic, to technical deep-dives for developers on the Z-Wave 700 Platform, to product-specific education from members for integrators, dealers, and others.

The 30-45-minute sessions will be held via Zoom, starting May 27, 2020, and run through August, on Wednesdays beginning at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET. Attendees can register on the Z-Wave Alliance website and links to each session will be shared with participants after their registration is complete. The schedule will be updated regularly as the series progresses, but will begin with the following two sessions:
