Linear Broadens Offerings with Z-Wave


By RS Staff January 25,2013


Linear LLC has added Z-Wave products to its line of wireless residential and commercial offerings.

As a result of purchasing certain assets from Advanced Control Technologies, Inc., Linear will begin to manufacture, sell and distribute a Z-Wave product line, which is a major step towards unifying appliances, lighting, other security systems, and more, into an integrated wireless network, the company says.

The addition of Z-Wave products gives Linear customer's access to a widely adopted wireless mesh protocol that is easy-to-install, modular, affordable and intelligent. The Z-Wave standard has been embraced by a variety of industries including: telecommunications, security, hospitality, light commercial and residential systems integration. The investment in developing a Z-wave product line broadens Linear's reach by introducing smart product offerings to meet the demands of an increasingly wireless lifestyle.

"The adoption of Z-Wave is a significant step forward for Linear since it allows us to immediately upgrade our smart control offerings while bringing a whole new level of innovation and intelligence to our customers and dealers," said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development. "Linear's existing line of health and wellness, security and access control products will benefit from the interoperability Z-Wave brings, allowing us to build a unified platform architecture for both residential and institutional segments."
