A new Aeon Lab product – Micro Smart Energy Switch gives an easy way to transform any ordinary switch or dimmer to the Z-Wave enabled one. It’s installed behind a light switch in a junction box and add possibility to send ON, OFF or lighting level commands from Z-Wave controller or remote control. Additionally it sends to controller an information about energy consumption. That solution will give more flexibility for new houses and apartments. Because consumers will be able to choose lighting switches design they want. For retrofitted projects it won’t be needed to replace existing switches.
It’s planned the Aeon Micro Smart Energy Switch will be priced less then $100.
