Lighting is an important area most homeowners often overlook. With elevated interest around human-centric lighting, this dynamic is changing. The ability to automate lighting around work, play, rest, and sleep is too good of an opportunity for homeowners to pass up.
In a recent discussion, Joe Lusi, President and Owner of JL Entertainment Designs, Inc. clarified the role of lighting by stating:
“Lighting may be the third or fourth item we discuss with end-users as they are often unaware of the power of lighting in their daily lives. Once the conversation shifts, it is fairly easy to spark thoughts of the wellness effects and the visual beauty that lighting can add to environments. With the touch of a button or voice command in our showroom, our URC’s Total Control® system can easily launch dramatic transitions. URC Lighting’s new hardware will allow us to select either functional use, dimmer or switch, and program it for the space. This reduces the need to have specific hardware and will allow simple neutral and non-neutral installations.”
In order to network its new lighting products, URC created a native gateway, the TRF-ZW10. The TRF-ZW10 is URC’s latest Z-Wave® Plus gateway that allows integration of supported lights. Control up to 40 devices per gateway and scale projects with multiple TRF-ZW10. To address security concerns, the TRF-ZW10 uses advanced Z-Wave S2 security encryption.
“URC’s Lighting continues our leadership in developing advanced solutions for our dealers and their clients,” stated Lars Granoe, URC’s Vice President Product Development. He continued, “this new lighting platform provides easy installation and continues URC’s future products and software plans.”
