I don't see were it says Z-Wave?
In any case, this device is not a Z-Wave  or Z-Wave Plus device, it uses both Sub G & WiFi frequencies but not the Z-Wave protocol.
The spec's make it confusing and most end users who glance over the frequencies available will assume that it is Z-wave when it isn't.

Operating range of 0-40C does not sound like an outdoor unit.

From the item description:
Radio Frequency:
868.4MHz
 EU; 908.4MHz
 US; 921.4MHz
 ANZ; 869.2MHz

Maybe its only for the ring?
And video added as IP cam?

Yes, the frequency is correct but they do not support Z-Wave protocol.


Believe me, our company distributes much of the NEO range and these are NOT Z-Wave.
If they were then we would be selling them.


In Asia, they promote/sell/use what they call sub-G, best guess is that it is similar to 433mHz.
As to what the protocol used is - I have absolutely no idea and any attempts to get an explanation from the factory is neigh on impossible.
Someone might be able to reverse engineer the protocol but the reality is  that 433 or WiFi is a better bet as you can simply use http calls to control the device.
