URC announces TRF-ZW2

Faster, smaller, Wi-Fi connected Z-Wave gateway

URC’s TRF-ZW2 replaces the TRF-ZW1 Z-Wave Gateway. It features Wi-Fi connectivity complete with WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) for easy pushbutton pairing, a smaller form factor, faster processing and 2X total memory. Available now.

The new Z-Wave gateway does not require Cat5 and supports all-new User Interface with URC Vivido specific programming. The TRF-ZW2 and its predecessor both support UI7 graphic user interface. You will find more details about UI7 in the next section.

“Z-Wave is hot and our new gateway is even hotter. It’s potentially 20% faster than its predecessor and packs the very latest Z-Wave chipset into a super-small form factor. The new, ultramodern GUI allows end-users to set their own lighting scenes quickly and easily. And end-users have the option of activating their private account to enjoy offsite access to Z-Wave control,” said Cat Toomey, URC Director of Marketing.

The new “UI7” User Interface is modern and attractive. It streamlines programming and general control of Z-Wave devices for both the dealer and end-user. Also, it provides URC Vivido specific programming, e.g., Device Parameters, EZ Association, and Intuitive Instructions for including our lighting devices). UI7 includes an end-user account wizard that makes it easier for an end-user to change lighting scenes and set up how they want to manage their account.
