The Honeywell ZWSTAT aka TH8320ZW1000 is a z-wave enabled home or business thermostat. The ZWSTAT is compatible with all z-wave enabled systems. This product is also, compatible with certain Honeywell Vista wired security systems “as long as it has a VAM module and a 5800ZBRIDGE attached to it”. The ZWSTAT will also be compatible with the LYNX Plus L3000 wireless security system “as long as it has the 5800ZBRIDGE attached”. Along with the previous systems this thermostat works best with the all new LYNX Touch L5100, L5200 , and L7000 wireless security system’s by simply adding the L5100 z-wave module to the control panel.

Once your system is set up to utilize this ZWSTAT thermostat the features are extremely useful.  When you integrate the ZWSTAT to your alarm system it will be able to provide automatic energy management.  For example lets say on a typical day you are  leaving the house and you arm your alarm system. The ZWSTAT thermostat along with your alarm system will be smart enough to know that you are leaving so it will turn the air conditioning or heater off to conserve energy . The same goes for when you arrive home, when you disarm the system it will understand you have arrived home and will set the air conditioning or heater back on bringing your home back to a comfortable level.

Yet another cool feature of this ZWSTAT is the adaptive intelligent recovery feature. The thermostat is able to learn exactly how long it takes your air conditioning or heater unit to cool or heat your house to the programmed temperature.In other words let say you want your home to be at 76 degrees at 6pm. The air conditioning unit will turn on at the appropriate time to get the houses temperature to 76 degrees by that time.

Have you ever been in a situation where employees or roommates place the resting temperature either way to high or low? The ZWSTAT can solve that problem by simply allowing the end user to set a maximum or minimum temperature. This is an excellent feature because it never allows your system to over work itself and of course it will save you alot of money on your electric bill. The ZWSTAT even has a feature that can remind you when it is time to change your air filter to allow your system to run at optimum efficiency. Lastly the air circulation feature will basically move air tthroughoutyour home or business anytime your ac or heater is not in use to save energy to prevent hot and cold spots.

The ZWSTAT is easily programmed using the touchscreen display. This is where you can set up all the different features we have introduced you to today. With the systems I listed above you can use 4 thermostats on either the 5800ZBRIDGE or the L5100 Z-WAVE controller.

 Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com announced their partnership with the DSC IMPASSA Wireless security system

Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com announced their partnership and the IMPASSA Series is the first solution to reach dealers. This system comes with the alarm.com 3g8055 AT&T Cellular Communicator which cannot be purchased separately to be used with older IMPASSA Systems. The alarm.com IMPASSA version 1.3 + wireless security system kit also comes with the onboard daughterboard which will enable the use of the alarm.com image sensors , and the z-wave module which will allow for the use of home automation devices. If you have an older version of the IMPASSA and are looking to use the alarm.com interactive services all you would have to do is swap the control panel with the alarm.com DSC IMPASSA wireless security panel. Note if you are also wanting to have the zwave and daughterboard you must purchase this system in the kit form because if you just purchase the panel by itself it will not come with either of those items. All of your door contacts, keypads, motion detectors, smoke detectors/ heat detectors will still work with the updated panel.

The two companies plan to integrate other select hybrid systems for global markets later in the year on systems such as the all new DSC Neo system.   The close engineering collaboration and partnership between Tyco Security Products and Alarm.com will ensure the full range of current and future Alarm.com services are supported providing a leading, future-proof platform to dealers globally.

This is a much-anticipated day for Tyco – they have another great partner on board which has the ability to perfectly complement the current and future product portfolio.  It is another step in the right direction, offering customers product choice and service excellence.  “We look forward to an innovative future with this partnership with Alarm.com,” states Tim Myers, Product Line Director – Intrusion, for Tyco Security Products.
