This article from our friends at Automatedhome is relevant to some of the issues which have come up in this forum regarding Z-Wave


"The Problem
But even though Z-Wave is a ‘standard’ there’s a growing issue that needs to be addressed. Every time a new device is launched you have to ask yourself – is this supported in my Z-Wave setup?

Whether you run DomoticzFibaro, HomeSeerIndigoSmartThingsVera, Zipato or any other hardware or software controller, its far from certain that a new device will work straight off the bat.
In fact it’s much more likely that, at best, you’ll have to wait some time for an update to add support for that module. At worst it may never be supported at all.

Some multi-sensor devices may inhabit a middle ground on your controller, with only some of their features supported – perhaps movement will be available but not temperature for example.

The article says that Zwave Plus will reduce the compatibility problems
In fact it may increase the compatibility problems as it introduces many more incompatible products
