HomeSeerâ€™s New Z-Trollerâ„¢ Revolutionizes Z-Wave Network Setup
Bedford, NH â€“ HomeSeer Technologies announces its new â€œZ-Trollerâ€ PC/Z-WaveÂ® computer interface. The new interface revolutionizes HomeSeer Z-Wave network setup by dramatically simplifying the process. With Z-Troller, you need only press one button to add, delete or identify any Z-Wave device (light switch, lamp module, motion sensor, thermostat, etc) in your HomeSeer PC network.
Z-Troller is the ONLY self-contained handheld Z-Wave primary controller that also operates as a Z-Wave computer interface. â€œIn the past, HomeSeer users had to purchase a primary Z-Wave controller and separate Z-Wave computer interface. With Z-Troller, this is no longer necessaryâ€, states Richard Helmke, HomeSeerâ€™s founder and president. â€œA new global Z-Wave network optimization feature is also supported by Z-Troller. This one feature alone is worth its weight in goldâ€ adds Helmke.
Z-Troller is designed to work with the HomeSeer PRO-100 home automation controller or with any PC running HomeSeer HSPRO or HS2 home automation software. Z-Troller is compatible with all Z-Wave products from all manufacturers including ACT, Intermatic, Leviton, Cooper, Monster Cable, RCS and Camstat (to name just a few). The first units will feature a serial interface. A USB model is slated for release in 2007.
Z-Troller is slated to begin shipping in October, 2006.
For the past eight years, HomeSeer Technologies has been creating some of the most popular and robust automation systems available. HomeSeer Technologiesâ€™ software and hardware controllers have been installed in over 10,000+ residential and commercial sites. HomeSeer has won numerous awards including TechTVâ€™s Best of CES, HomeAutomation top 50, TechLivingâ€™s HOT LIST, and was recently selected as a central integration component in all episodes of the hit FOX TV show â€œRenovate My Familyâ€.
