FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
October 16, 2006
Bedford, NH – HomeSeer
Technologies announces its new “Z-Troller” PC/Z-Wave® 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.
Z-Troller is designed to work with the HomeSeer PRO-100
home automation controller or with any PC running HomeSeer
HSPRO or HS2 home automation software. Z-Troller is compatible
with all Z-Wave products from all manufacturers including
ACT, Intermatic, Leviton, Cooper, Monster Cable, RCS and
Camstat (to name just a few). The first units will feature
a serial interface. A USB model is slated for release in
Z-Troller is slated to begin shipping in October, 2006.
For the past eight years, HomeSeer Technologies has been
creating some of the most popular and robust automation
systems available. HomeSeer Technologies’ software
and hardware controllers have been installed in over 10,000+
residential and commercial sites. HomeSeer has won numerous
awards including TechTV’s Best of CES, HomeAutomation
top 50, TechLiving’s HOT LIST, and was recently selected
as a central integration component in all episodes of the
hit FOX TV show “Renovate My Family”. HomeSeer
