Wi-fi and zwave are different automation protocols. Z-WaveŽ Sigma Designs.
Wi-fi uses proprietary app on phone or computer program that may or may not be current over time. Wifi products from different company might not interoperate. Wifi bandwidth allows quick transmission of data, with more broadcast distance and maybe wider functionality than zwave, but might carry privacy issues.

Zwave works with phone or other device via in-home hub. Open-source zwave has been standard for decades. Zwave devices from any company will interoperate with each other, with newer products offering additional features, such as automatic inclusion and frequently-listening. Zwave data packets are small, broadcast distance can be dependent on array of devices. Zwave offers controlled privacy.
Both wifi and zwave are reliable, offer scheduled events, both can be used while away home, and both will signal when connection is successful.

Timer on  wall controls water heater

24 hour timer to control my water heater.
Timer is mounted in-wall below attic light switch. Timer is same size as typical light switch

When Hot water is scheduled using timer, hot water consumption drops.
Reducing consumption is key to saving money and saving energy.
See installation

Eye-level installation: easy to change schedule, and reset after power outage
See Family Chart for setting timer

Electrical Safety:
Each item works with the other to provide overall protection of grid and service.
Fuse and breaker cut power when heat on wire exceeds rating.
cuts power when a short to ground is detected.
Arc fault
cuts power with an arcing connection or short to ground.
provides direct pathway for electricity to reach soil or ground.
Surge and arrestor
protect from voltage increases caused by inductive loads and nearby lightning.
