Aeon Labs Minimote
(Z-Wave Remote Controller)

Introduction:
The Minimote is a fully functional Z-Wave remote control
capable of adding, removing and controlling other Z-Wave
devices. Advanced functions include automatic
rediscovery of the Z-Wave network and becoming a
secondary or inclusion controller to a SIS gateway in the Z-
Wave network. Direct communication range is 100ft.
indoors and 300ft. outdoors.
Network setup buttons (such as adding and removing Z-
Wave products to the network) are located underneath
the bottom-slide door while Z-Wave scene control buttons
are easily available to the user on the top of the remote
controller.
The Minimote is also device firmware upgradeable by the
end consumer. This enables the product to always have
the latest Z-Wave protocol, capabilities and commands.
By taking advantage of the Z-Wave mesh network,
commands can be routed to their destination via
intermediary “listening” Z-Wave products. Products that
are Z-Wave certified can be used and communicate with
other Z-Wave certified devices.
