WIRELESS INNOVATOR ZENSYS TO PARTICIPATE AT CONNECTIONS
Dallas, TX April 12, 2005 — CONNECTIONS: The Digital Home Conference and Showcase is pleased to announce Zensys as a gold sponsor for its 2005 event, which will be held May 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency near the San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, Calif.
Zensys is a leading provider of wireless networking technology for control and status-reading applications, most notably recognized for its Z-Wave technology, an RF-based, two-way, mesh network communications protocol that enables everyday devices to be controlled and monitored wirelessly.
Parks Associates’ research shows that powerline and wireless standards simplify installation of home controls and may be applied across market segments — from small homes to large commercial office buildings.
“At CONNECTIONS last year, the Z-Wave wireless home control technology was rapidly gaining momentum as the de facto standard for home control,” said Raoul Wijgergangs, vice president of business development for Zensys. “This year, our position is stronger than ever with over 125 companies supporting Z-Wave as their home control standard of choice, more than 70 Z-Wave products available to consumers and a second-generation chip that is the least expensive, most efficient, and smallest on the market.”
The CONNECTIONS Conference and Showcase combines Parks Associates’ primary and industry research with insights from key strategists to provide a comprehensive analysis of current and future “Digital Living” technologies.
“Home management has often been overlooked, not grabbing headlines like entertainment solutions despite persistent consumer interest in controls and security,” said Tricia Parks, president of Parks Associates. “In truth, the digital home will not be complete without a management foundation in place, and companies like Zensys have been very successful in building viable control solutions for this market, thus ensuring realization of the digital vision. With Zensys at CONNECTIONS, our attendees will get a truly complete view of the digital home.”
Attendees will network with 700+ executives, establish partnerships, learn about emerging products and services, and become educated on the current and future developments for digital living technologies.
