Honeywell introduces Z-Wave home energy management solution

MELVILLE, N.Y., June 29, 2011 – Honeywell today released the 5800ZBRIDGE Wireless Module. The newest member of Honeywell’s 5800 Series wireless devices, the 5800ZBRIDGE is an easy-to-install product that enables Honeywell security systems to control up to four Z-Wave devices. It can automatically set back thermostats and turn lights on or off whenever security systems are armed or disarmed—helping homeowners save money and conserve resources every day by simply using their security systems.

"With the 5800ZBRIDGE, dealers can provide homeowners with the ability to save money on their heating and air conditioning expenses," said Mark O’Keefe, general manager for Honeywell’s StreetSmart. "They see more value in their security systems and are more apt to use them every day—making it an excellent account retention tool and new business driver. It can also be easily retrofitted into existing Honeywell security installations to help dealers reduce attrition and close more business."

The 5800ZBRIDGE is compatible with Honeywell’s LYNX and select VISTA control panels. For more information, please call 1-800-467-5875.
