Z-Wave – Show off what you’ve got!

Z-Wave boasts 650 certified interoperable products, and the challenge that lies ahead is establishing a comprehensive and coherent brand image at international trade shows.

Lucky for Z-Wave, over in the USA, the agency, ‘nParallel’ came forward with an overall professional presence and an ideal solution.  They are to design a custom rental trade show display with 20x30 foot and 60x60 foot configuration options.  nParallel is a full service agency that creates, crafts and takes charge of displays and fixtures designed to establish brands in trade show, retail and corporate environments.

These are really exciting times for Z-Wave as more products are being developed and they intend to show off what they've got, for all the world to see!  Never to add to Z-Wave's flashy image, but this week saw the launch from Honeywell, as they released a WiFi version of 'Tuxedo Touch.'

'Tuxedo Touch' is a touch screen security and automation controller with Z-Wave functionality. Wi-Fi eliminates the need to run a CAT5 when connecting to a local area network.

This new Z-Wave compatible device features a bright, full colour, 7 inch display and uses a built in controller that can communicate with up to 232 Z-Wave enabled devices such as thermostats, lighting controls and locks.  Its built in web server enables to communicate and control the Tuxedo Touch in their home or building when using Wi-Fi enabled devices such as Smart phones, tablets, PCs and internet TVs without the need to install an app.

As if this piece of technology required any other features, it also views local weather information, upload digital photos and videos and simultaneously view streaming feeds from up to four IP video cameras.

Well it’s a Tuxedo, of course it's going to be flash.
