New ASPIRE RF Smart Dimmer Provides Enhanced Load Compatibility and Technology to Expand Capabilities

Wireless System Allows Homeowners to Remotely Monitor and Control all Lighting Loads

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. … Diversified power management company Eaton announced today that its ASPIRE RF, Z-Wave-based Smart Dimmer has expanded its load compatibility. This update allows end users to remotely control and monitor the full dimming range of their lighting for all common load types, including incandescent, magnetic low voltage, electronic low voltage, light-emitting diode (LED) and compact florescent (CFL).


"Knowing that so many users are focused on energy-efficient lighting, we've challenged our team to develop products and solutions that allow for seamless integration with our wireless systems," said T.J. Landrum, marketing manager, Technology, Eaton's Cooper Wiring Devices business. "Using the latest Z-wave technology, our systems do just that - simplify home automation. Users can enjoy the added peace of mind and energy savings associated with this innovative, new wireless technology."

Designed for residential and light commercial applications, the Smart Dimmer System Master can replace regular switches to provide local and remote ON/OFF, dim and bright control without having to overhaul wiring. Additionally, the ASPIRE RF's new, all-load dimmer features increased flexibility with programmable functions, multi-location control and safety features, such as child lockout and panic mode.
