Jasco Products, industry leader for over 10 years in Z-Wave lighting technologies, today announces a new line of GE branded Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes that work with light bulbs, indoor and outdoor switches and dimmers all with or without a hub. Debuting at CES 2017, the new line includes five GE branded Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes (Booth #12000, Central Hall). The Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes offer primary or secondary light controls from anywhere in the home, in a small portable design that is great as a handheld remote for tabletop control or mounted to the wall as a virtual wall switch. The remote controls offer fast toggling between predefined settings via two or four buttons that react differently from single or multiple button presses that trigger scenes or control devices around the home. For example, users can set individual switches to turn lights and devices on and off, adjust brightness and scene presets, or raise and lower window shades.
“Most connected bulbs or smart switches rely on an app to control or dim the lights, if they support that feature, but it’s not always quick or convenient to pull out your smartphone and then open the right app just to control a light bulb,” said Cameron Trice, Jasco CEO. “Most people want to automate their lights, but then also be able to control them from a light switch on the wall as they always have. Consumers now have the ability to control all brands of Z-Wave enabled light bulbs and smart home products with a press of a button they can locate anywhere, regardless of what type of wiring they have in their home.”
The versatile GE branded Wireless Smart Remotes are battery operated and can be placed anywhere in the home without having to replace or rewire your existing switches. They can be placed under any existing wall plate or beside a current light switch using a multi-gang wall plate to create a seamless look with other switches in your home. Simply mount the included wall bracket to the back of the wall plate, screw the wall plate in place, and snap the GE branded Wireless Smart Remote into the opening. The included custom mounting bracket allows for effortless, wire-free installation, while the quick disconnect remote easily snaps on and off for instant portability as a handheld remote control. The smart remotes also function as a scalable system, giving users the freedom to pair multiple lights with one remote and add as many remotes as needed throughout the home. In addition, users can also have multiple remotes in different locations control the same lights, like hallway or outdoor lights, creating the benefit of 3 or 4-way wired light switches, but without the need for wires. Whether you’re adding on to an existing network or using as a standalone device, the GE branded Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes give you the best of both worlds.
