Jasco Products Company, GE licensee of consumer electronic accessories, computer accessories, home electric products, and personal security and surveillance products, has been appointed to the Z-Wave Alliance Board of Directors.
“Jasco chose to build Z-Wave certified products more than five years ago, and through continued investments and innovative product development we have been able to support many Z-Wave partners with quality GE Z-Wave products,” says Cameron Trice, Jasco Executive VP of Marketing and Product Development. “Bringing affordable Z-Wave technology and home monitoring capabilities to the mass market is at the forefront of what we do.”
Jasco has been a member of the Z-Wave Alliance since 2006, and in this new roll will help guide Alliance programming and management. The Alliance is the world’s largest consortium of manufacturers making interoperable wireless products.
The GE Z-Wave line includes innovative remote controls with door lock capabilities, in-wall dimmers, plug-in modules for lights and small appliances, wall outlets and scene controllers. Jasco recently introduced the advanced GE Z-Wave Energy Monitoring Module. This innovative product precisely captures power used by devices like computers or TVs, and transmits that data to a device that interprets the information for consumers. The energy-efficient device captures voltage, frequency, kilowatts and kilowatt-hours as well as power factor. It allows consumers to make adjustments to help reduce their carbon footprint.
“With its strong retail presence, Jasco has helped make Z-Wave products the most widely available and affordable wireless solution for homeowners,” said Mark Walters, Chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance. “Z-Wave-enabled products have been installed in more than a million homes in America in the last year alone, and Jasco has been a part of this success.”
As a GE licensee, Jasco Products develops, markets, and distributes Consumer Electronic Accessories, PC Accessories, Home Electric Products, and Personal Security & Surveillance Products under the GE logo.
