New Fakro ‘Z-Wave’ Electrically Operated Windows At Ecobuild

  • Comment

At Ecobuild 2013 FAKRO GB, on Stand N1530, will be launching its ‘Z-wave’ FTP-V and FTU-V Electro roof windows in natural and white PU-coated pine. Z-Wave is a wireless communication protocol designed either for home or light commercial use. The technology uses a low-power radio frequency embedded or retrofitted into devices and can be controlled via Smartphone.

200 manufacturers of household devices including Apple, Intel, Panasonic, Danfoss heating systems and GEC have already joined the Z-Wave Alliance, so a diverse range of appliances, in addition to external and internal blinds, can be incorporated within any system.

A range of single and multi-channel wall keyboards and programmable remote controls is available giving users scope to create their own systems with a virtually unlimited range, all from a single chip.

The ZWK1 single-channel keyboard controls either a window, external roller shutter awning blind or internal blind. The ZWG1 wireless touch keyboard offers similar characteristics but using a keypad with contemporary toughened glass styling. Both have equivalent multi-channel options.

The ZWPTV is the ultimate multi-channel remote which can operate up to 36 receivers separately and many more in groups. It has a display screen which provides information about items in use and can also operate infra-red RTV devices.

The ZWMP weather module provides scope to automatically close windows if weather conditions change. Signals are detected by rain or wind sensors connected to the device.
