It shows you need the RZC0P serial interface thing.
My research showed that Zwave seemed to work better in mh than it was
Again, make sure you go through

I'm unable to think of anything which would be of a real concern except for compatability
with Linux and the electrical wiring in my country.
Likely because you can't use the same RF bands in all countries.

Also, UK is 240V US is 120V.
How do I know if that ZWave device (RZC0P-1LW) going to be compatible with other
ZWave devices which I'd want to buy...? (that webpage itself for this model says:
120VAC, 60Hz - which doesn't mean much to me)
It matters regardless of whether you pick Insteon, UPB, or Zwave since all 3

leach power from the powerline to work and would be unhappy if they got the
wrong voltage :)
In this case, the FIRST place to start is to find a place to buy either ZWave or Insteon
devices that are first and foremost fit for my country's electrical wiring... I'm from Israel and as I said the electrical system here is 220v / 50hz
