I am looking at getting a Ninjablocks.. is the 433 Mhz frequency they use for communication unrestricted to use like 2.4G and 5G Wireless is?

I've read it is but looking up on the RSM website I can't find anything specifically regarding it.

Have a look at PIB 21 fo the table of frequencies in use in New Zealand for an overview of the Spectrum.

What you need is the GUL (General user licence) for short range devices which is here and covers 433MHz amongst other frequencies


You will find anything you want at MightyApe (affiliate link).

No license required. 433MHz has been in use as a low power frequency in NZ for decades. Even if they changed the rules there are still a huge amount of garage door openers, remote controls, RC cars, etc. that still use it. It is also commonly used for data with Arduino and other modules. There are four of them on Jaycar's web site.
