- What's Included
If you already have a Cooper Aspire RF switch, receptacle, or appliance module in place, or plan to install one, you can easily add another switch in a different location to remotely control that module, without the need to run wires or cut into the wall. The Cooper Wiring Devices RF9500DS Aspire RF Wireless Remote Switch operates just like a remote control. It wirelessly communicates with other Aspire RF receptacles, switches or dimmers using radio frequency (RF) to provide remote On/Off and Dim/Bright control. At the same time, it is designed to be flush-mounted on a wall, just like a standard Cooper Aspire RF switch, so it has the same high end aesthetics. This is ideal for creating wireless 3-way control, eliminating the need for traditional 3-way wiring or for a dedicated traveler wire. Now you can control devices and light levels from almost anywhere in your home by adding a convenient switch in the location of your choice.
The Cooper Aspire RF switch is a battery operated device, utilizing two CR2025 batteries. The remote switch incorporates an Electro-mechanical push pad for On/Off operation with a separate Dim/Bright bar. It also provides other programmable functions (association, child lockout, etc.) when used with Aspire RF or other Z-Wave compliant products. A couple of added features include a Sleep Mode to reduce power consumption and extend battery life, as well as a patented indicator system that alerts you if the dimmer is not set up in the network.
The Cooper Wiring Devices RF9500DS Aspire RF Wireless Remote Switch can be used in existing or new multi-gang installations with use of the Cooper Wiring Inner Wall Plate, sold separately. However, this remote switch should be installed on flat surfaces only, not in electrical boxes.
