Why buy a Kwikset Smartcode Touchpad Keyless Entry Deadbolt?

The Kwikset 910 CNT ZW (Z-Wave) is a door lock that can be integrated into your existing home automation network. I recently took the opportunity to own one of these deadbolts and integrated it into my Vera controlled network.  It was a rough start, but so far it's looking like a good investment.

I purchased a GE 45602 Wireless On/Off/Dim Lamp Module

A little while back I picked up the GE 45602 Lamp Module, but it wasn't until recently that I needed to enlist its help in controlling the lights in our home.  Our Home Automation system already operates with several other Z-Wave enabled devices.

Will the GE Z-Wave 45601 Remote Control compliment a Home Automation network?

Spoiler Alert - yes, the GE 45601 Home Automation remote control may truly compliment your existing Home Automation network.  In the early days of my automation fun, controlling lights through from phone was pretty satisfying.  Now that the novelty has worn off a bit, I realize that its much easier to use a remote like this one instead of navigating through the controls on my phone or via a website on a computer.

WDRR-372 Wayne Dalton: a Z-Wave Garage Door Conversion module

This conversion module was purchased as a kit from the Home Automation store.  Install only took a few minutes, I liked that.  It synced up with the Wireless Keychain Remote pretty quickly, I like that.  So far, this was a good purchase.

3973CR Wayne Dalton - a Z-Wave Key Chain Remote

I just purchased this as part of a kit.  Setup is fairly straightforward between this Remote and the Conversion module.  Pairing this device with the Wireless Gateway is another story.

WDHA-12 from Wayne Dalton

I bought this Z Wave Home Controller (Gateway) as part of a Garage Door Conversion Kit from The Home Automation Store [site].  It was a pretty straightforward online shopping experience.  One of the better carts I've seen for a Home Automation site, though the site appearance was a bit lacking.
