SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Pro Control today announced it is now shipping its all-new Z-Wave® solutions. The Pro.zwi Z-Wave interface module utilizes Z-Wave RF technology to enable simple and cost-effective monitoring and control of Z-Wave-enabled systems and devices via a Pro Control system. Addressing the need for comprehensive lighting control, the new solutions include a line of switches and modules to enable users to easily manage lighting elements both locally and from the convenience of a Pro Control user interface.
“The Z-Wave ecosystem continues to grow with more devices and smart home solutions coming to market every day,” said Mike Everett, Vice President of Global Sales for Pro Control. “For dealers, this new Pro Control Z-Wave lineup expands their capabilities with a simple, flexible, and cost-effective solution for integrating Z-Wave-enabled devices into the Pro Control system without an exhaustive rewire.”
The Pro.zwi module provides the communication interface between a Pro Control system and
Z-Wave wireless lighting control devices, residential door locks, thermostats, and other electronics. Featuring easy programming capabilities, the solution eliminates the need for a different app for each Z-Wave device, providing users with unified control and monitoring over all systems without any Z-Wave licensing or monitoring fees.
Perfect for new construction and retrofit installations, the product line consists of light switches, dimmers, a lamp module, and receptacles, and does not require any new or specialized wiring. For instance, the innovative battery-operated “Anyplace” switch eliminates the need for wiring, offering incredibly flexible installation possibilities. With a classic, elegant design, the devices blend into any décor, and easily scale to address installations of nearly any size.
