LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 03, 2017) - Sands Booth 41241 - The Z-Wave Alliance, an open consortium of leading global companies deploying Z-Wave is launching the first-ever Z-Wave Experience Home at CES 2017 in the Sands smart home marketplace. The Experience Home is a built-house on the show floor showcasing four different rooms and smart home scenes running across Z-Wave Alliance member brand products. Run on the Nexia hub and app, the Home will feature a living room, kitchen, bedroom and outdoor area with connected devices such as thermostats, locks, lighting, smart water management and shade control.
The Z-Wave Experience Home is the first-ever demo home showcasing multi-brand smart home functionality and do-it-yourself products all running on the interoperable Z-Wave IoT standard. Each room will include customized scenes based on real life use cases for smart home devices. The Nexia platform can also communicate with Amazon Echo, giving the house a smart home AI assistant.
- Outdoor -- The outdoor area of the house will include a "never come home to a dark house" scene, with functionality that includes the garage door opening, doors unlocking and the lights turning on. The scene also demonstrates the peace of mind knowing your home & contents are safe with early water detection smart devices.
- Kitchen -- The "wake up to a warm home" scene will show off a perfectly lit kitchen with the added control capabilities to set scenes like "wake up, turn on lights, leave the house" with just the touch of a button. This area will also show smart home voice activation and gesture pad technology, two unique ways of hands free control during messy cooking prep or clean-up.
- Living Room -- With two scenes in one room, the living room will include a comfort scene with a one-touch controller from Nexia demonstrating easy access and control of devices like TV or videos games and the ability the check energy usage. The "movie night made easy" scene shows how one touch can activate mood lighting, lower shades and help transform a living room into a home theatre.
- Bedroom -- The "goodnight, sleep tight" scene shows off the power of having smart home security; one press on a local control device will set the temperature, lock the doors, and set the lights for peaceful sleep. During the night, intruders can be scared away with a panic button that triggers a siren or turns on the lights in an emergency.
