The CA-1 supports Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Zigbee and serial communication. Using the optional Z-Wave module, the CA-1 becomes compatible with a selected set of Z-Wave control devices including door, window and temperature sensors, electrical outlets and dimmer outlet modules. The CA-1 also features Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) so it can be easily installed virtually anywhere with a single network cable.
