Happy Holidays From Worthington

The Worthington elves hard at work!  From The Worthington Family to yours;  enjoy a safe and healthy Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season.



Spotlight on Aeotec

Aeotec is a leading manufacturer of Z-Wave devices.  They have been able to strike that ever-delicate balance between price and quality.  Aeotec Z-Wave devices typically price out among the lowest when compared to competing devices, and they have one of the lowest failure rates in the industry.  Aeotec devices are well-known with hub and gateway makers, so they are very widely supported.  You’re probably already familiar with the standard devices that Aeotec makes like door/window sensors, motion sensors, water, sensors, and repeaters.  Today we would like to take a moment to explain some other great devices that Aeotec make that you may not already be familiar with.

First up is the micro module.  It comes in switch and dimmer varieties and has multiple applications.  One is to use it in place of an in-wall dimmer or switch.  The micro module goes in the wallbox and connects to the line, neutral, and load wires.  It also has input terminals that connect to a standard on/off switch.  Use these to provide local control in a familiar form factor.

Another great application is as a fixture module.  Maybe you come across a bank of lights that yo need to break down so that it can be controlled in multiple groups.  The micro module can be installed right in the fixture and controlled like any other Z-Wave dimmer or switch.  Perhaps you want to mount a scene controller in a room but the only wall box available has a switch in it.  You could remove the switch and send hot power to the fixture.  Place a micro controller in the first fixture in the series for control, and mount your scene controller in the box.

The next is the touch panel.  It’s a companion to the micro module and fits in a 1-gang box. Wire it to the input of a micro module for local control in a sleek design.








Finally, let’s take a look at the sleek new door/window sensor with rechargeable battery.  Our industry has no shortage of this type of sensor.  This one is different.  It’s only 9mm thick, it’s paintable to make it disappear,  and it has a rechargeable long-life battery.  It costs a little more, but it offers a little more.

Welcome the Holidays with Automated Christmas Lights!

The holiday season is upon us and most of us have already put up our Christmas decorations. What makes those pesky lights just a bit more enjoyable is being able to set them on a timer or even control them with your smart phone! With Bluetooth Plug-in modules or a Z-Wave home gateway, you can automate those beautiful Christmas light displays for the whole world to see! For any questions on our Bluetooth or Z-Wave products, please give us a call at 800-282-8864 or email
