I'm looking into home automation and I think I'm settling on z-wave as my choice. however, I was slightly worried by this comment on wikipedia;
In Europe, the 868 MHz band has a 1% duty cycle limitation, thus a Z-Wave unit can only transmit 1% of the time. Z-Wave units can be in power-save mode and only be active 0.1% of the time, thus reducing power consumption substantially.
Does anyone know if this means that z-wave is limited in the UK? For example, does it mean that there are products and applications that are less capable in the UK than in the US, or product which can't be used? Or have I misunderstood?
