Home Controls has added Linear’s new Z-Wave lighting products to its line of wireless residential and commercial offerings. The new products represent a benchmark for Linear as the company seeks to unify wireless lighting control products with existing security and access control systems, and other Z-Wave products.
“The addition of Z-Wave lighting products gives Linear customers access to a widely adopted wireless control protocol that is easy-to-install, modular, affordable and intelligent,” said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development. “The extensive product offerings and adoption of the Z-Wave protocol across many industries will create opportunities for Linear dealers in new and existing markets.”
Linear is now manufacturing, selling and distributing Z-Wave lighting control products that include: wall dimmers, wall switches, wall outlets, lamp modules, appliance modules, 3-way switches/dimmers and fixture modules. See the products at Home Controls here: www.homecontrols.com/manufacturers_list/Linear-Z-Wave. Z-Wave is an international wireless standard for intelligent, interoperable, low-power, RF mesh networking technology. This powerful smart chip and compact protocol enable two-way RF communications among Z-Wave enabled devices. .
The products fit in nicely with Linear’s recent acquisition of 2GIG Technologies since 2GIG’s GO! Control platform is Z-Wave certified and provides an elegant and user-friendly control panel for the management of lighting, security, access control and more. Z-Wave enabled products represent the world’s largest ecosystem of interoperable smart products giving Linear dealers more options and opportunities in a variety of segments.
