Crafted so that your home can feel precisely as you want it, every in-wall light controller is designed with functionality and the way you live your life in mind. Their small size will afford you the control, intelligence and automation you need without ever asking you to change the design of your home to suit them.
Befitting any home from any era, if you have a modern, cutting edge home, they'll suit your style. If tradition is more your thing, they'll be equally as perfect.
How they work
With the flick of a switch, or the press of a button, the perfect scene is set. Lights dim and others turn off. All in unison. Nothing is too bright, nothing too dim. Your lights have set the perfect mood.
And they're your existing lights. Because with each Z~Series in-wall light controller no new cabling has to be installed. Instead each controller can installed right behind your existing switch, or behind the light fitting itself. And then they communicate with each other, wirelessly.
Once installed you'll be able to intelligently automate your lights, or create specific lighting scenes. You'll also be able to manually control them from anywhere in the world via a computer or a mobile phone, or away without using a switch via a remote control. And you'll be able to do this without ever losing the manual control provided by your original wall switch.
Each in-wall light controller allows you to automate, schedule and control a light or series of lights in your house or apartment. The concept is simple, but everyone uses them differently.
Some people with Z~Series homes use them to save money and energy; ensuring that lights aren't left on at night or when nobody is home. Others use them for convenience, automatically turning on lights to a dim level should they get up in the night. And some use them to set perfect scenes in specific areas of their home, such as their home theatre, ensuring their lights are always as they like, when they like.
It's often asked of us precisely how many in-wall lighting controllers will be needed. The answer comes down to two factors: how many individual light switches you want to automate and how much power they use.
Each in-wall light controller is capable of controlling 500 watts or 3 amps of lights. Take a look at your average light bulb and you'll see that's quite a few lights. What it then depends on is how many lights are wired into your switch. A lot of switches will support multiple lights, and the Z~Series in-wall modules will too.

Dimming Don't just turn your lights on and off, set the perfect mood by getting their brightness just right. You'll be able to dim most compatible bulbs, including modern dimmable halogen* and LED* lights, and dimmable CFL bulbs. *) See "important notes" at the bottom of this page.
Indoors and Outdoors The perfect look requires lighting finesse from the front to the back of your house. And that means not just the lights inside, but those outside. Control, schedule and automate your external lights for effect and safety.
Scene Control Group multiple lights together in a scene setting, brightening and dimming and turning on and off lights so that they're perfect, using a remote control, switch or server interface.

Schedule Z~Series was designed to make life easier in these busy times. That's why the in-wall light controller can be intelligently scheduled to operate precisely when needed. Turn lights on when you're getting up, and schedule them to be off when not needed.
Fantastic Wireless Range Small in size but not in range, the Z~Series in-wall light module can wirelessly communicate directly with other Z-Wave devices in your Z~Series house up to 24 metres away.
Small In Size A controller that allows you to invisibly make your lights a part of your Z~Series home has to be small in size. Measuring only 5cm x 5cm x 2cm, the in-wall light module is small enough to fit behind a switch, or in you wall or ceiling space, without compromising on signal strength or quality.
Simple Installation A retrofit installation that doesn't need any extra cables, the Z~Series in-wall light controller will take only minutes to be wired into your house and included in your Z~Series system.
Mesh Communication Able to speak with other Z-Wave devices in your Z~Series home, the in-wall light controller acts as both a control device and a repeater for other commands and communications giving the controller a near-limitless range of communication.
