The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has named Cooper Wiring Devices as an International CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, in the category of Integrated Home Systems, for ASPIRE RF wireless control products.
Cooper Wiring Devices’ ASPIRE RF products incorporate Z-Wave’s two-way radio-frequency-based technology to connect over 200 devices in a single network. ASPIRE RF products work as a “mesh network,” providing reliable performance in home control. By allowing each device to act as a repeater, it ensures that every command is carried out. And each ASPIRE RF product offers complete interoperability with other manufacturer’s Z-Wave products.
Using the same aesthetic design as the award-winning, contemporary-styled ASPIRE Design System line of decorator wiring devices, ASPIRE RF includes the ASPIRE signature curve motif and contrasting matte and low-gloss finishes. The series comes in three two-toned color combinations: desert sand, white satin and silver granite.
- Line includes switches, receptacles, dimmers, scene controller, remote controls, accessories & screwless wall plates
- Three color combinations available
