HomeSeer's Smart Switches Change Color When Things Happen

HomeSeer's new smart home wall switches, dimmers and fan controllers have RGB LEDs that are designed to glow or blink different colors based on homeowner preference or when things happen in the home (or both). The new "200" series line will debut at CES 2018 in Las Vegas and will begin shipping in January.

HomeSeer's new smart home wall switches, dimmers and fan controllers are equipped with multicolored RGB LEDs that respond to wireless Z-Wave commands. This allows homeowners to control the color of each LED or switch based on their personal preference or based on the changing status of things in their home.

In normal mode, wall switches glow to reflect the status of each circuit using a palette of 7 possible colors. Colors can be set once and left or can be programmed to change every day or on holidays, birthdays and other special events.

In status mode, individual LEDs can be controlled to reflect the status of nearly anything in the home. If it's after midnight and the garage door was left open, specific LEDs can be programmed to glow yellow (or any color). If a smoke alarm goes off, all LEDS on all switches can blink red. If no status conditions are active, wall switches automatically return to normal mode.

"For many years, smart home switches all did basically the same thing in the same way" says Mark Colegrove, HomeSeer's Director of Sales. "We changed that in 2016 by adding multi-tap scene triggers to our 100 series line. Our 200 series raises the bar even higher by offering a wall switch that functions as a scene controller and a multi-colored status indicator".

The 200 series line includes the HS-WD200+ wall dimmer, HS-WS200+ wall switch and HS-FC200+ 4-speed fan controller. The dimmer and wall switch will ship in January. The fan controller will ship in early April. You can see the new products in action at CES 2018 in Las Vegas (Z-Wave Alliance booth #41717)
