Originally developed by two Danish engineers, Z-Wave is a wireless communication standard that since 2005 has formed the basis of the Z-Wave Alliance, a network of over 330 manufacturers and service providers that produce and distribute wireless home automation solutions. The intrinsic benefits of the Z-Wave system combine low energy consumption with advanced communication security. What’s more, users can rely on all Z-Wave devices being fully interoperable, thanks to comprehensively specified communication aspects and product certification. With more than 1,400 certified devices to date, Z-Wave has become the world’s leading system platform for interoperable wireless products. Z-Wave Europe GmbH, Europe’s largest distributor for smart home devices with Z-Wave wireless technology, is showcasing product highlights at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover that include the new KeyFob remote control from Fibaro.
The Fibaro KeyFob is a compact remote control that exudes luxurious, state-of-the-art quality with six symbol-shaped haptic buttons. Each button responds differently to one, two or three clicks and being held down, making it possible to activate 24 different functions. In addition to simple switch functions, the KeyFob can also be used to control more complex pre-configured operations via a Z-Wave control center. Ever mindful of safety, the KeyFob comes with a programmable PIN lock to protect against accidental clicks or unauthorized use of the keypad.
