The Aeotec Minimote is low-cost remote controller focused on end-user ease of use. Although simplicity and user experience is the primary focus, the full range of Z-Wave remote controller capabilities are left intact for the advanced user. Network installation is vastly improved via the interface. The Minimote is upgradeable by the end-user such that the latest Z-Wave protocols are always available. An internal lithium battery allows for months of usage and is recharged via USB.
