of precision-machined aluminum and is minimally designed

of any space while ensuring that iPad is always reliably

Z-Wave Alliance Hits
Product Milestone
THE Z-WAVE ALLIANCE, the standards development organization
dedicated to advancing the smart home and Z-Wave
technology, has announced the Z-Wave product ecosystem
has surpassed 4,000 certified devices.
HOPPE AG is the Alliance member that hit that magic
milestone which comes on the heels of the Z-Wave Alliance
announcing the first Z-Wave Long Range (Z-Wave LR) certified
devices are hitting the market for implementation into
smart home systems.
" Z-Wave has been at the forefront of smart home technology
and a champion of security, interoperability, and
backwards compatibility for over two decades, " states Mitch
Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. " Our recent
bevy of announcements - ratification as a Standards Development
Organization (SDO), the addition of new board

members, the first Z-Wave LR Certified devices, and now
growth of the Z-Wave ecosystem to over 4,000 devices - all
indicate that Z-Wave continues to innovate and advance the
smart home market and shows no signs of slowing down. "
Interoperability between Z-Wave products is the cornerstone
of the Z-Wave technology standard; interoperability is
only achieved through testing and certification.
Bond Bridge Integrates with
Josh.ai
THANKS TO A STRATEGIC alliance between Bond Bridge
and Josh.ai, home technology professionals can now marry
the two in their clients' Control4 environments. The pairing
provides Josh.ai's natural voice control of motorized window
shades, ceiling fans, and fireplaces that are managed by the
Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi home control platform.
The Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi hub along with the Bond
Home Smartphone/Tablet App consolidate control of Somfy
and Rollease shades and most ceiling fans. No installation or
wiring is required, and for larger jobs multiples can be used.
Bond brings the added benefits of programming capabilities,
and now full-featured voice automation in Control4 projects.
" Our strategic partnership with Josh.ai is a direct result of
numerous dealer requests, " says Zohar Shinar, CEO of Bond
Bridge, and parent company Olibra. The basic Bond Bridge
can manage 30 appliances in a 2,500-square-foot home. The
step-up Bond Bridge Pro can manage 50 in a 3,500-squarefoot
home, according to the company. Bond Bridge Pro also
incorporates an Ethernet port with POE technology, which
makes for easy integration with Control4.
FX Luminaire Adds Nighttime
Demo Feature
For custom integrators selling lighting, getting property
access at night to conduct an in-person lighting demo can
be challenging. That's why FX Luminaire now enables dealers
to create a nighttime lighting demo from anywhere with the
new Night Mode feature from the lighting fixture provider's
My Design tool.
Night Mode is a simple editing tool that lets you design
renderings with illustrative night lighting. It shows essential
details like direction, intensity and more to assist dealers in
effectively simulating nighttime aesthetics even if they can't
set up a proper demo for clients.
According to FX Luminaire, the process is easy to develop
a professional proposal in only a few clicks with the online
resource. Integrators can snap a picture of any landscape,
then turn on Night Mode to reveal the effects of landscape
lighting in their design.
