CEDIA Expo: RTI Shows First Z-Wave Lighting Control Products

RTIis launching the first Z-Wave lighting products under its RTI and Pro Control brands at this week’s CEDIA Expo.

The company is also launching a new RTI intercom capability.

The Z-Wave lighting-control products, due in 2016, let users control lights locally or remotely from an RTI or Pro Control UI.

The RTI products integrate with RTI’s home and commercial automation systems via the ZW-9 Z-Wave interface module for new-construction and retrofit installs. The line consists of light switches, dimmers, a lamp module and receptacles. It also comes with battery-operated Anyplace switch requiring no wiring of any kind.

The Pro Control Z-Wave lighting products include the same types of products, including an Anyplace switch, to interfaces with Pro’s Pro.zwi Z-Wave interface module.

Also new is an intercom capability available as a free firmware update in the fourth quarter. It provides an audio intercom solution between RTI user interfaces and any third-party device that supports intercom functionalities via SIP protocol. The capability enables auto answer and do-not-disturb functions, device-to-device calling, and a simple page flip to access the intercom on RTI interfaces.

The interfaces include the T3x handheld remote, CX7 countertop/under-cabinet touchpanel, and KX7, KX3, and KX10 in-wall touchpanels.

The interfaces offer a “push-to-talk” mode.
