Jasco’s GE Branded Z-Wave Deluxe Hand-Held
Remote Wins 2007 Innovations Honors
How does the Z-Wave Deluxe Hand-Held Remote work? Users outfit an electrical outlet or lighting switch with a Z-Wave node, which uses wireless technology to speak to the remote. Once lighting or an appliance is outfitted with a Z-Wave node, it only takes a simple touch of a couple of buttons to program the remote to recognize the node. Once a node is programmed, the control possibilities are endless!
The advanced features of the Z-Wave Deluxe Hand-Held Remote give users the ultimate in lighting and appliance control. The group function allows control of more than one node at the push of a button. Scene programming allows users to include timing and dimming features into one program. For example, a home theater scene would turn off all lights in the kitchen and dim overhead lighting to a predetermined level over a time span of two minutes. The calendar and timer features give users the flexibility to wake up with a gradual brightening of the bedroom lights only on Monday through Friday or ensure that outdoor lighting turns on every evening at 7 p.m. An easy-to-read LCD screen also provides quick feedback for all the remote’s functions.

The thought never crossed my mind that GE would adopt the Z-Wave protocol.
