No drilling is required or better said no tools are needed to install the A/C control in your home. Simply place the A/C control where you want it to be and connect it wireless to your home automation network.
When using the A/C control you will not need to use any wiring to integrate the A/C control into your home automation network. Instead the A/C control uses low power, secured wireless technology to communicate with your home automation network making the A/C control blend into your home.
When the A/C control is connected to the power via a USB adapter then the AC/control works an a transceiver which means that it can both transmit and receive Z-Wave radio signals giving extra functionality to the module. The module will receive weakened signals from surrounding Z-Wave modules and retransmit these with full signal strength, routing the signal around obstacles and so called radio dead spots.
You can change the way the A/C control is displayed with in the NETIChome for your browser interface by changing the A/C control icon and the widget title, giving you an interface that fits your home environment.
