Monster Cable has formed a strategic partnership with Little Neck, N.Y.-based Leviton Manufacturing to bring wireless lighting technology to homes across America.
A line of wireless remote-control lighting products, built by Leviton and marketed under the Monster IlluminEssence brand, will be available through select consumer electronics retailers nationwide, according to the companies. The new alliance is part of Monster's Central Lighting Systems product offering.
The new wireless radio frequency lighting-control products will use Z-Wave technology to provide homeowners with programmable lighting levels that can store multiple lighting scenes and recall them at the touch of a button. The system is said to be the first affordable remote lighting-control system specifically targeted for residential applications.
The devices include digital switches and dimmers, along with a full-function scene controller, zone controller, appliance and lamp modules and remote control.
