Luxul XWC-1000 Enables Seamless Roaming and Simplifies Multi-AP Installations

Salt Lake City, April 28, 2015 - Luxul, a leader in networking solutions for professional installers, has announced today the availability of its new XWC-1000 Wireless Controller. Designed specifically for integrators, the XWC-1000 provides simple and time-saving multi-AP wireless network setup, while solving client roaming issues using Luxul's exclusive Roam Assist™ technology. With seamless roaming, installation simplicity and sensible pricing (MSRP of $399), the XWC-1000 meets the needs of the residential and light commercial custom installation community.

"The XWC-1000 is the first wireless controller designed specifically for the custom integration pro," said Luxul CEO, Jeffrey Curtis. "It addresses the primary wireless networking challenges our dealers face daily, including seamless roaming, simple setup and profitability. We're excited to bring such a great product to market that helps our dealers efficiently and profitably deliver a superior wireless roaming experience and exceed customer expectations."

Capable of efficiently managing up to 16 APs, the XWC-1000 is compatible with all Luxul standard-power APs, as well as the XAP-12xx and XAP-15xx series of high-power APs-allowing installers to mix and match APs to maximize the performance and budget of each project. The XWC-1000 is available standalone, or in kits complete with APs and PoE hardware (see XWS-1310 and XWS-2500). The standalone controller and controller kits will reach authorized distributor shelves this week.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
