UEI Presents Z-Wave Long Range Certified IoT Device

Z-Wave LR eliminates the need for these repeaters, unlocking new potential for Z-Wave networks.

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) has launched first certified Z-Wave Long Range Controller to be available to consumers at the International Security Conference & Exposition – also known as ISC West, trade show in Las Vegas.

UEI Z-Wave Long RangeBranded under UEI’s subsidiary, Ecolink Intelligent Technology, Inc. (“Ecolink”), the 700 Series Garage Door Controller delivers expanded options for the smart home and multi-dwelling units.

“We are proud to be the first certified Z-Wave Long Range product and excited to help consumers who want reliable, easy to use security technology for their home. This continues the many ‘firsts’ that UEI has contributed to our sensor technology history. We look forward to current and future partners that plan to adopt the Ecolink brand and are excited that the controller is slated to ship soon,” said Hrag Ohannessian, SVP Sales for Home Automation, Security and Hospitality.

Building on more than 30 years of coverage in creating security-grade technology, the ground-breaking Controller has a range of up to 2,200 feet from a paired Z-Wave security panel or hub.

Core benefits of Z-Wave Long Range (LR) technology include increased coverage, increased scalability, optimized battery life, interoperability and backward compatibility.

Before the Z-Wave LR, multiple signal repeaters were required in a mesh network to achieve transmission distances beyond the boundaries of the home.

Z-Wave LR eliminates the need for these repeaters, unlocking new potential for Z-Wave networks.

Z-Wave LR technology allows homeowners remote monitoring and control of their garage doors, using either a smartphone or the security panel or hub, providing an extra layer of protection against intrusion. The Controller is compatible with any certified Z-Wave-enabled hub or security panel.
