The ZRC-90 from Remotec is a new Z-Wave Scene Controller.
The unit comes with a wall mount bracket and its battery power means it can be sited almost anywhere around your home (2 x AAA batteries give ~ 1 year life at 30 button press per day).
Battery power also means the unit can be easily removed from the wall and used as a remote control.
The neat unit (110mm x 70mm x 13.5 mm) is Z-Wave Plus certified and there’s already support for it on SmartThings via this community project on GitHub.
When one of the buttons on the ZRC-90 is pushed, your Z-Wave central controller will receive a signal which it can use to trigger unlimited control possibilities. With 8 buttons, each supporting a long-press capability, you can control 16 different actions in your central controller. The ZRC-90 is a great solution for triggering events more quickly than taking out your smart-phone and running a home control app.
The ZRC-90 Scene Master is already available in some regions and should be available on all Z-Wave frequencies according to the user manual. Meanwhile we’ve reached out to Remotec for a UK date and RRP and will update this post with the info.
