Homeowners are always looking for new products to add security, comfort and convenience to their lives. When you take into consideration how many times you leave and return to your home in a single day, your garage door is generally a main point of entry. Since you're already used to pushing a button to open and close your garage, why not have that same button control your indoor and outdoor lighting, security system and select appliances.
Leading the way in automated home products is Wayne-Dalton and its line of Home Control products which all use Z-Wave technology, the new standard in wireless remote control. Z-Wave is a wireless system that lets your home electronics talk to each other and you via remote control through low-power radio waves that easily travel through your walls, floors and cabinets. You can add Z-Wave functionality to almost any electronic device in your house our on your key chain, even devices that you wouldn't normally consider intelligent - appliances, window shades, thermostats and home lighting.
Many of the Wayne-Dalton's openers feature Z-Wave capabilities, so not only will you be able to control your garage door, but your entry lights, security system and any other item in your home that operates using electricity.
You can choose from a variety of wireless remote controls and modules, depending on how many rooms you want to control. For total home control, it is best to choose from one of their many kits. Wayne-Dalton recently added the Z-Wave® Thermostat to its line of Home Controls products, which takes home automation to a new level.
"We are excited to bring this new home control technology to the marketplace," said Jeff Franklin, Executive Vice President of Wayne-Dalton. "The unit is easy to install, easy to use and surprisingly affordable, making it a unique product that stands out in the relatively new arena of remote programmable thermostats."
The Z-Wave® Thermostat was recently recognized as the "Greenest New Product" at the 2008 CEDIA EXPO. It allows homeowners the ability to manage their heating and cooling needs with the push of a button. Temperature control can be accessed through front panel buttons on the unit or remotely from any Z-Wave® enabled remote control, computer or cell phone. The unit offers simple to activate "green" energy conservation and normal mode pre-set temperatures.
