Aeon Labs introduces new edition of In-Wall Z-Wave Controller

Aeon Labs introduced the 2nd edition of its Micro Smart Switch, an in-wall Z-Wave power controller. Designed for both retrofit and new-build home automation, Micro Smart Switch allows for any existing wall switch to be converted into a fully-featured Z-Wave wall switch.

The Micro Smart Switch has been crafted to invisibly install within a building’s walls and powers both the full automation and control of appliances and lighting.

The Micro Smart Switch (2nd edition) offers new technologies and refinements over the first edition. Home and office owners will benefit from the latest stable Z-Wave technology, manual and wireless automation and control, a redesigned and fully optimised antenna, along with full energy consumption monitoring.

The Micro Smart Switch (2nd edition) is able to create Z-Wave powered switches with the wall switch designs of Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand, South and North America and the United Kingdom.

Micro Smart Switch (2nd edition) is the first product to be released from Aeon Labs’ 2nd edition range of Z-Wave hardware. In early September 2012, Aeon Labs announced that it was developing 20 new Z-Wave products scheduled for release across the remainder of 2012 and into 2013.

Across a selection of lifestyle, energy management and safety focused offerings, Aeon Labs’ forthcoming Z-Wave products have been developed with the company’s 6 years of expertise in Z-Wave research, development and manufacturing.
