Lutron Accuses Leviton of Patent Infringement
Zensys, maker of Z-Wave wireless control technology, stressed in a statement that the lawsuit does not involve Leviton’s implementation of Z-Wave.
“Zensys is aware of the lawsuit filed by Lutron regarding Leviton’s use of RF lighting controls, but we believe there is significant confusion in the marketplace—and misinformation in the press—about what this means for Z-Wave,” read the statement. “The lawsuit does not apply to Z-Wave technology itself, but rather how lighting products are designed and operated, which is completely independent of what RF communication technology is used. Since this is a pending legal matter, we are unable to publicly comment any further or provide any details to this matter.”
