Jasco Introduces Five New GE Branded Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes at CES 2017

LAS VEGAS–([1])–Jasco Products, industry leader for over 10 years in Z-Wave lighting
technologies, today announces a new line of GE branded Z-Wave Wireless
Smart Remotes that work with light bulbs, indoor and outdoor switches
and dimmers all with or without a hub. Debuting at CES 2017, the new
line includes five GE branded Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes (Booth
#12000, Central Hall). The Z-Wave Wireless Smart Remotes offer primary
or secondary light controls from anywhere in the home, in a small
portable design that is great as a handheld remote for tabletop control
or mounted to the wall as a virtual wall switch. The remote controls
offer fast toggling between predefined settings via two or four buttons
that react differently from single or multiple button presses that
trigger scenes or control devices around the home. For example, users
can set individual switches to turn lights and devices on and off,
adjust brightness and scene presets, or raise and lower window shades.

“Most connected bulbs or smart switches rely on an app to control or dim
the lights, if they support that feature, but it’s not always quick or
convenient to pull out your smartphone and then open the right app just
to control a light bulb,” said Cameron Trice, Jasco CEO. “Most people
want to automate their lights, but then also be able to control them
from a light switch on the wall as they always have. Consumers now have
the ability to control all brands of Z-Wave enabled light bulbs and
smart home products with a press of a button they can locate anywhere,
regardless of what type of wiring they have in their home.”

The versatile GE branded Wireless Smart Remotes are battery operated and
can be placed anywhere in the home without having to replace or rewire
your existing switches. They can be placed under any existing wall plate
or beside a current light switch using a multi-gang wall plate to create
a seamless look with other switches in your home. Simply mount the
included wall bracket to the back of the wall plate, screw the wall
plate in place, and snap the GE branded Wireless Smart Remote into the
opening. The included custom mounting bracket allows for effortless,
wire-free installation, while the quick disconnect remote easily snaps
on and off for instant portability as a handheld remote control.

The smart remotes also function as a scalable system, giving users the
freedom to pair multiple lights with one remote and add as many remotes
as needed throughout the home. In addition, users can also have multiple
remotes in different locations control the same lights, like hallway or
outdoor lights, creating the benefit of 3 or 4-way wired light switches,
but without the need for wires. Whether you’re adding on to an existing
network or using as a standalone device, the GE branded Z-Wave Wireless
Smart Remotes give you the best of both worlds.
