Linear Expands Home Automation Offerings with Z-Wave Lighting Products

Linear-Logo-0413Linear has added Z-Wave lighting products to its line of wireless residential and commercial offerings. The new products represent a benchmark for Linear as the company seeks to unify wireless lighting control products with existing security and access control systems and other Z-Wave products.

Z-Wave is an international wireless standard for intelligent, interoperable, low-power, RF mesh networking technology. A smart chip and compact protocol enable two-way RF communications among Z-Wave enabled devices. Linear is now manufacturing, selling and distributing Z-Wave lighting control products that include: wall dimmers, wall switches, wall outlets, lamp modules, appliance modules, three-way switches/dimmers, fixture modules, as well as international versions of the same products.

Linear says the products also fit with its recent acquisition of 2GIG Technologies since 2GIG’s GO! Control platform is Z-Wave certified and provides a control panel for the management of lighting, security, access control and more.
