First in new illumino range of smart switches and dimmers.
Chicago, September 17, 2021 – It was near-on a decade ago that they released their first in-wall switches. Building upon that engineering know-how and experience, Z-Wave specialists Aeotec are this week releasing the first successor to their Micro and Nano range of wall-switch adaptors, illumino Switch.
Crafted as an all-in-one switch and to North American standards, illumino Switch has been engineered to meet modern consumer demands by infusing intelligent automation and control alongside a wall switch’s standard form factor and functionality.
Able to automate up to 500 watts of lighting, this new Aeotec dimmer is compatible with single pole and 3 / 4 way switches. In larger installations, illumino Dimmer Switch offers 5-way-plus control through its powerful use of Z-Wave Plus V2 and Aeotec’s exclusive Gen7 technology stack.
Compatible with broad range of automation software, including Aeotec Smart Home Hub and SmartThings, illumino Dimmer Switch is distributed through North America by Aeotec Americas and launches this week on Amazon.com and SmartMatters.co.
