RTI Now Offers Integration With Z-Wave-Enabled August Smart Lock Pro
RTI has introduced a "seamless compatibility" of its control systems with the August Smart Lock Pro from August Home. Utilizing RTI's ZW-9 Z-Wave Interface Module, integrators can provide centralized access control for their customers throughout a home or building and remote access control using RTI's RTiPanel app.
The ZW-9 uses the Z-Wave wireless protocol to provide the communication link between an RTI system and the August Smart Lock Pro. Combined with an RTI XP processor, this allows users to lock and unlock the deadbolt, as well as monitor the lock status and battery level, right on their RTI user interface — whether it be a handheld touchscreen controller, a tabletop touch panel, or remotely on a smart device.
"We continue to deliver seamless integration with more and more Z-Wave enabled devices, and we're proud to have the August Smart Lock Pro on our list of supported smart home products," said Mike Everett, vice president of global sales at RTI. "On top of its beautiful design, the August Smart Lock Pro is an excellent retrofit solution for access control and easily integrates with an RTI system."
"The August Smart Lock Pro leverages the architecture of the market-leading August Smart Lock for total control over the front door. With support for Z-Wave, the lock works seamlessly with security and home automation systems from RTI as part of a complete smart home solution," said Mike Buckingham, director, August Pro for August Home.
RTI also offers a variety of Z-Wave lighting control solutions including light switches, dimmers, a lamp module, and receptacles — with no new or specialized wiring required — that are perfect for retrofit applications. For instance, the innovative battery-operated Anyplace switch requires no wiring of any kind, offering incredibly flexible installation possibilities. With a classic, elegant design, the devices blend into any décor and easily scale to installations of nearly any size. Utilizing Z-Wave RF technology, these lighting-control solutions create a wireless network that seamlessly integrates with RTI's home and commercial automation systems via the ZW-9 Z-Wave interface.
