[Contest] HomeSeer Technologies Z-Troller Give-Away

Not open for further replies.


HomeSeer Technologies is joining the CocoonTech Summertime 2007 Water, Wear, and Wave (Z-Wave that is) Contest theme by offering a HomeSeer Z-Troller as one of the prizes!

BSR Edit: Congratulations to matrix for winning this WAVE Contest!


CocoonTech announced this device when the press release came out in October 2006.

Bedford, NH - HomeSeer Technologies announces its new "Z-Troller" PC/Z-WaveR 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. "In 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 necessary", states Richard Helmke, HomeSeer's founder and president. "A new global Z-Wave network optimization feature is also supported by Z-Troller. This one feature alone is worth its weight in gold" adds Helmke.

Additional information about the Z-Troller can be found HERE.

This Z-Troller contest is limited obviously to members who both use HomeSeer AND Z-Wave products! This is a great addition to anyone using these two technologies so we really want to see this go to someone who will reap all the benefits of combining his/her HomeSeer software with their Z-Wave hardware!

To enter this contest, qualified members who meet the above requirements need to only reply below to this thread with Z-Troller as the first word.

Note that one can enter both this Z-Troller contest and the Water and Wear Contest.
