Smart Home Leader Nexia™ Powers the Z-Wave Alliance Demonstration House at CES


LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Smart home leader Nexia™, a brand of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), is the electronic brain powering the Z-Wave Alliance demonstration home that features an ecosystem of products working together to create a smarter way of living at the Consumer Electronics Show.

The versatility, security and reliability of Nexia are among the reasons it was chosen to power the Z-Wave Alliance home. A wide range of products are featured in the home, including traditional connected devices like lighting controls, thermostats and locks along with new categories like a no-touch gesture-based control and even a connected mouse trap. The demonstration home is running on Nexia’s first Z-Wave+ Certified bridge embedded in the new Trane® XL1050 climate control.

“Nexia has long been, and continues to be, a defining force in the evolution of smart living,” said Mitch Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. “By integrating reliable products and services that make daily life easier, Nexia allows users to choose smart devices from a variety of nationally recognized manufacturers without locking themselves into a closed ecosystem. The ability to control so many smart devices securely and reliably is why the Z-Wave Alliance entrusted Nexia to power our demonstration booth at CES, where the eyes of the world are on us.”

Added Nexia general manager George Land, “Nexia can control more than 500 different devices from more than 80 manufacturers and unite them to create simple and secure smart homes that operate seamlessly.
