Cooper Wiring Devices announces new
Aspire RF products at CEDIA ’08

PEACHTREE CITY, GA., August 11, 2008 — Cooper Wiring Devices announced it will be showing exciting new additions to its ASPIRE RF wireless control system at the 2008 CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design and Installation) Expo in Denver, Colorado from September 3-7. New ASPIRE RF products being introduced include 2-wire dimmers, switches and accessories that are designed for enhanced retrofit capabilities. Another new product, the ASPIRE RF Ethernet Bridge, will be introduced at the show. The ASPIRE RF Ethernet Bridge allows secure ASPIRE RF system access via the internet, providing remote access from any location. Cooper’s exciting new Ethernet Bridge allows homeowners and system designers to change and customize settings and scenes without having to physically be in the home. In addition, a new keyless garage door entry system will be introduced.

Aspire RF will be the focus of attention at Cooper Wiring Devices’ exhibitor booth (#377), as the company looks to educate and train a wide variety of installers, integrators, and other industry professionals on the advantages the ASPIRE RF offers their customers and how it can help them to grow their businesses.

“ASPIRE RF offers a highly reliable, interoperable wireless lighting control system complementing homeowners’ style and design preferences,” said Jason Sherrill, Product Manager at Cooper Wiring Devices. “A truly elegant look and feel, combined with ease of use and intuitive programming makes ASPIRE RF the best choice for any residential integrator.”

The ASPIRE RF wireless control system, powered by Z-Wave technology, features a full line of switches, receptacles, dimmers, scene controls, remote controls, accessories and screwless wall plates. All products are interoperable, and are fully compatible with a wide range of products from other Z-Wave manufacturers. The entire system is controlled with the press of a single button on a remote control, and can be joined with other devices to create “events” or “scenes” that offer ambience, security, convenience and energy savings.

Cooper Wiring Devices has brought a genuine commitment to the certified residential electronics professional with the introduction of ASPIRE RF to the custom electronics market. With an emphasis on training and customer service, Cooper has consistently made its name as an industry leader by partnering with its customers to ensure the value and quality of every installation. Cooper Wiring Devices is a division of Cooper Industries, which is currently celebrating its 175th anniversary.

“The added value associated with the Cooper name provides a considerable competitive advantage to our customers,” said Bill Johnson, new Director of Technology Sales at Cooper Wiring Devices. “The ASPIRE RF wireless control system is technologically advanced, ergonomically superior and offers the ultimate in wireless control convenience,” he continued. “A long-term commitment towards quality products and innovative design has been Cooper’s mission for its 175 years, and will continue to drive us to be the pre-eminent leader in wireless electronic customization.”
