It will unveil its new products at the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association® (CEDIA®) EXPO 2014 in Denver, Colorado on September 11-13, 2014.

"Monoprice is known for its high-quality products that customers want at the most competitive prices you can find online," said Bernard Luthi, president of Monoprice.

Monoprice's new line of home automation components integrate with current equipment in homes and workplaces through various operating platforms, providing convenience remotely and enhancing the use of home security, lighting controls, home theater and audio systems.

Monoprice will debut its lineup of new and affordable home automation products at CEDIA including:

Z-Wave® Dimming Plug-In Switch (#11994): With the ability to sync up to two different devices, this forthcoming wall attachment allows users to easily control the dimming function of their lamps or lights through their electronic device.

Z-Wave Door and Window Sensor ($24.88, #10795): This sensor can be used to monitor either a door or a window, sending a Z-Wave signal when the door or window has been breached.
