It has long been thought that a house becomes a home when we make it reflect who we are, when we personalize it, when we fill it with objects we treasure. And all of that remains true, but it no longer needs to be just the objects we put in our home that personalizes it. Like the music that gently fills the background of your favorite restaurant, Aeotec's Micro Switches create the perfect ambiance for your home, and then some. They also give you the perfect control and the perfect, intelligent automation.
The Aeotec Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Switch G2 is a low-cost Z-Wave appliance module specifically used to enable Z-Wave command and control (on/off) for an existing in-wall switch. It controls a single load independently and can also report immediate wattage consumption or kWh energy usage over a period of time. The wireless module is powered from the mains supply and is a three-wire design which requires a neutral connection. In the event of power failure, non-volatile memory retains all programmed information relating to the unit's operating status. It also is a repeater in the Z-Wave network. Acting as a bridge for communication, it will forward Z-Wave command messages to their destinations if the originating controller is out of range from the destination node. By taking advantage of the Z-Wave mesh network, commands can be routed to their destination via intermediary 'listening' Z-Wave products. Products that are Z-Wave certified can be used and communicate with other Z-Wave certified devices.Smart Energy Switch - Monitoring Energy Consumption
The Aeotec Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Switch G2 can report total wattage energy usage or kWh energy usage to a Z-Wave gateway or controller when requested. If this function is supported by the gateway/controller, the energy consumption will be displayed in the user interface of the gateway/controller. (The specific Z-Wave commands supporting energy monitoring are the Meter Command Class. Automatic reports are sent to association group 1, which is setup via the Association Command Class.) Please consult the operation manual for these gateways/controllers for specific instructions on monitoring the Micro Smart Energy Switch G2.
Across three Smart Energy Micro Switches and two regular Micro Switches (see below for descriptions), each one letting you perfect everything from your home's lights to its appliances and to its motorized curtains, you'll find that the same magic has been built right into the tiny body of each switch. Z-Wave is perfect when you don't see it. It's perfect only when you feel it. And Aeotec's Micro Switches provide just that. Cleverly crafted to fit within the walls of your home, each Micro Switch can fit behind your existing switches, modern switches, or nothing at all. And once they're setup within your walls, they'll provide you with all the control you need, from lighting control to appliance control to motor control. Aeotec's Micro Switches are Z-Wave made invisible.Micro 'Smart Energy' Switches
