The CONNECT radio system is a bi-directional radio network. That means that all devices can transmit and receive signals simultaneously. Thus it is possible for signals to be routed or for alternative radio transmission paths to be searched for (e.g. during temporary faults).
There are two configuration methods:
- The EASY CONNECT method : To connect up to five devices located close together(e.g. in one room). Configuration is carried out manually.
- Using the CONNECT radio configurator: For systems between different rooms with up to 100 devices and extensive functions (scenes, central switching function, switch times, individual key assignment).
- Secure transmission using the 868 MHz frequency range
- Meshed network technology using Z-Wave™ standard
- Clear addressing enables interference-free operation of multiple radio systems side by side
- Very flexible installation and configuration
- No cable routing required, due to the use of battery-powered transmitters
- Standard battery (CR 2450N) used inside the battery-powered transmitters
- Extension of existing installations within the mentioned WD ranges
- Implementation of groups, scene controlling options and central functions
- The extensive product spectrum covers all areas of application such as lighting control, roller shutter control and scene.
- Simple learning for freely programmable functions
- Extremely flat battery-powered push-buttons e.g. for attaching to glass
- Indoor transmission range: around 30 m (depending on place of installation and building characteristics such as materials and wall thickness)
- Range in free field: approx. 100 m
