Making the Z-Wave interoperability layer public could make smart homes easier to set up

Home IoT is still reaching for mainstream use.

The main backer of Z-Wave, a widely used in-home networking standard, just did something that might help take it there.

On Wednesday, chip vendor Sigma Designs made the interoperability layer of Z-Wave available free to the public.

This is the code that allows all Z-Wave products to work together.

Like others in the fledgling IoT business, Z-Wave's backers want to get more devices working together.
