Linear LLC Key Developments

Linear LLC to Show Preview of its Newest Z-Wave Product

Linear LLC will show a preview of its newest Z-Wave product, the Z-Wave Dimmable LED Light Bulb at CES Unveiled New York. The instant-on, screw-in bulb provides soft-white illumination equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent bulb and provides one of the simplest and most affordable intelligent lighting solutions available, from the manufacturer of Z-Wave products. The new smart bulb is remotely controllable from any Z-Wave hub or controller, consumes only nine watts of energy, and has an estimated lifespan of 25,000 hours. The soft white LED light bulb is dimmable to 100 levels and offers a practical lighting solution for DIY and professional installers who want to bring intelligent lighting anywhere a light socket exists. Just like with other Z-Wave lighting solutions, Linear LED smart bulb users can program lifestyle scenes and trigger the bulb on or off when other events or associated devices are activated. This new product also acts as a repeater to strengthen the Z-Wave mesh network. In addition to the smart bulb, Linear manufactures a wide array of other Z-Wave enabled home control products, including: three-way and regular light switches, thermostats, doorbells, key fobs, door/window contacts, dimmer modules and wall outlets; all of which will be on display at CES Unveiled. Linear will also showcase its UL-certified Z-Wave Garage Door Operator Remote Controller, which has been widely adopted through popular platforms such as Lowe's Iris, Nexia, Staples Connect and more.

The Chamberlain Group Inc. announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Linear LLC (Linear). The lawsuit was filed on July 9, 2014 in the U.S. Federal District Court in Chicago, Illinois. It alleges that Linear's GD00Z Garage Door Remote Controller and SW-ATT-GDC Garage Door Remote Controller Products infringe three CGI patents: U.S. Patent No. 6,998,977, issued in 2006, for monitoring and controlling the operator of a moveable barrier, such as a garage door or gate, over a network, for example, from a smartphone. U.S. Patent Nos. 7,852,212 issued in 2010 and 8,144,011 issued in 2012, for interacting with the operator of a moveable barrier, such as a garage door or gate, through an alarm system. The inventions in the three patents at issue in the lawsuit provide fundamentally new and useful capabilities.
