Can The Lynx Touch L7000 support Z-Wave Receptacles?
The Lynx Touch L7000 comes equipped with z-wave capability. When paired with a L5100-zwave module, a user can control home automation (z-wave devices) locally using the touch screen home automation icon or from any computer, smart phone or ios device, once connected to AlarmNet’s Total Connect 2.0.
A z-wave receptacle is one component of the z-wave “family” and is designed to work with other z-wave enabled devices. A z-wave receptacle can either replace an existing electrical receptacle in an outlet box using the existing wires or can be newly installed. A z-wave receptacle can control lighting and appliances either remotely or manually. Once a z-wave receptacle is installed, a user can control one light, one room or an entire house. Additional receptacles can be added at any time.
Since z-wave devices work on RF frequency, a z-wave receptacle will also act as a wireless repeater to insure commands intended from another device are received by extending the range. Every receptacle acts like a single repeater and multiple receptacles provide additional transmission routes which help eliminate RF dead spots. Actual performance in a site depends on construction and the number of walls between the controller and the device. The more receptacles used actually extends the range.
The Lynx Touch L7000 supports up to forty-seven (47) z-wave devices in total Six (6) z-wave door locks, four (4) z-wave thermostats, forty (40) z-wave lights, switches and lamp modules, z-wave shade control and z-wave water value.
