Powered by Z-wave: We licensed a novel RF technology called Z-Wave® that is specifically target towards residential and light commercial environments. Its home automation control and status reading capabilities compliment Remotec's A/V and home theater expertise. The focus on narrow bandwidth applications helps to save costs and increase efficiency.
RF communication: Z-Wave® operates in the sub-gigahertz range. A direct line of sight does not need to be established and this frequency range avoids interference from common household electronics (i.e. WiFi routers, Bluetooth, cordless phones, etc)
2-way communication: The status reading capabilities allow the controller to get feedback from the slave devices immediately. This added feature can provide confirmation responses or status inquiries.
Mesh network: Each Z-Wave® device is an intelligent node, able to send and receive control commands, that comprises an entire mesh network, a maximum of up to 232 devices. . With each additional device or node, the range of the Z-Wave system is extended. Furthremore, large interferring objects can be easily bypassed with this mesh network.
Scenes and Events: They work individually or in groups. These programmable scenes or events can allow multiple devices to act in conjunction with each other, automatically or manually.
Interoperable: Due to the efforts of the Z-Wave® Alliance, an international consortium, the technology has been standardized to ensure interoperability between all Z-Wave® devices.
