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.


Arlo IP cameras are now here at Worthington Distribution!!

IP cameras, or internet protocol cameras, have become more and more prominent in the security and CCTV market in recent years. The benefits of having an IP camera are vast but just to point out a few, IP cameras give the ability to share two-way audio via the network cable giving you the ability to use door stations, among other things. Another major advantage is the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom over that very same cable. Beyond that, the IP protocol is much more encrypted and secure than the older analog predecessor.

There is a new style of IP camera that is changing the game a little bit. The name of that weatherproof AND high definition camera is Arlo. The Arlo IP camera is unique in that the camera is fully battery operated. The magnetic mount that comes with the camera makes it ideal to mount anywhere in your home that you have a wireless connection to the supplied ‘hub.’

To top off this gadget’s list of advantages, Arlo offers free as well as paid cloud recording so you have no need for an NVR in the home. You can store and review the last 7 days of recordings for free! The Arlo app always keeps you connected to your video memories. You have the option to upgrade your services to 60 days of cloud storage.

The Arlo will have the ability to sync with a smartphone app which is available on the iOS and Android app stores. The app will then give you the ability to set up alerts and schedules to best suit your’s and your family’s needs.
