Will Cooper and Eaton Z-Wave Products Work w/ a Tuxedo Touch?
Yes, Cooper and Eaton Z-Wave products will work with a Tuxedo Touch. Z-Wave is a universal protocol. While there are exceptions, it is generally understood that any Z-Wave device should work with any Z-Wave controller. Therefore, Cooper and Eaton Z-Wave products should work with the Tuxedo.
The Honeywell Tuxedo Touch is a hardwired touchscreen keypad for Honeywell VISTA Security Systems. In addition to serving as a controller for the system, the Tuxedo Touch also doubles as a Z-Wave hub. When a Z-Wave device is paired with the Tuxedo Touch, the user will be able to control the device directly from the keypad. The user will also be able to control the device from Total Connect 2.0, provided that the service is included in their monitoring plan. The user can access TC2 from both their smartphone and through a web browser. Total Connect 2.0 also allows users to establish smart scenes so that their Z-Wave devices activate automatically based on a set schedule or with predetermined system events.
Cooper was a brand of Z-Wave home automation devices that included various smart lights. However, these products were later rebranded as Eaton. For the purpose of the Tuxedo Touch, you can treat Cooper and Eaton Z-Wave devices exactly the same. Whether the device is branded as Cooper or Eaton, you should have no trouble using it with a Tuxedo Touch. The Tuxedo Touch Keypad will just see it as a Z-Wave device. Remember, Z-Wave is a universal protocol, so it is generally understood that any Z-Wave device can be used with any Z-Wave controller. This includes using Cooper and Eaton Z-Wave devices with the Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Keypad.
Once you have successfully enrolled your Cooper or Eaton Z-Wave device with your Tuxedo Touch Keypad, you will be able to control the device directly from the Tuxedo Touch. And if you have the Tuxedo Touch connected with a Honeywell VISTA System that is set up with Total Connect 2.0, then you will be able to control the device remotely from a web browser or your smartphone. You will also be able to include it with smart scenes as needed.
