With the HomeSettings eco-friendly home products from Intermatic (Spring Grove, IL, U.S.), homeowners can control and program lights, security systems, and electronic devices even when they are away. This flexibility can guarantee minimum energy waste, as no lights or appliances will be accidentally left on. Through Z-Wave, a low-cost, two-way wireless-mesh network communications technology, the HomeSettings plug-in modules, in-wall receptacles, and switches can receive commands in the home via a remote control, or away from home via a USB stick when the matching software kit is installed on a laptop or PC. All plug-in modules, receptacles, switches, and easy-to-use controllers are controlled by radio frequency so no wiring is involved. The products are also interoperable with other Z-wave–enabled devices. www.homesettings.com
