Suffering from ZigBee Dysfunction? Get ZigBee’s ‘Little Blue Pill’
Card Access offers ZigBee Extenders for networks that suffer from small mesh size, poor ZigBee responsiveness, and reduced performance.
There’s nothing funny about ZigBee dysfunction (ZD) … unless you’re Card Access, a ZigBee developer that recently launched a cheeky marketing campaign for networks that suffer from:
- Small ZigBee mesh size
- Poor ZigBee responsiveness
- Reduced ZigBee performance
Thankfully, Card Access assures us that ZD is curable: “A variety of treatments can help you permanently eliminate the symptoms, discomfort and embarrassment of ZigBee Dysfunction.”
The company recommends these peripherals to extend a ZigBee mesh up to 300 feet:
- ZigBee Pro Extender
- Wireless Contact Relay External Antenna Version
- Wireless Contact Relay Internal Antennal Version
- Sensor Bridge
- Heavy-Duty Power Controller
Card Access is dispensing ZigBee Extender Tablets – little blue pills that taste suspiciously like M&Ms – at all stops on the nationwide Control4 dealer road show. The two companies have partnered for many years to integrate Card Access’s ZigBee-enabled accessories with Control4’s whole-house control systems.
According to information plastered on the pill bottle, integrators should use the product at the first sign of ZD symptoms:
- Purchase Card Access devices with ZigBee Extender Technology.
- Insert one or more devices into mesh.
- Watch mesh grow and see ZigBee performance immediately perk up.
- Swell with pride and never worry about poor ZigBee performance again.
Card Access assures would-be sufferers that all calls will be handled “professionally, delicately, and with unbending confidentiality.” And, by the way, don’t be alarmed if ZigBee signal enhancement lasts longer than four hours.
