Available in smart/Wi-Fi (STW700W) and standard (ST700W) configurations, the company says Ascend allows users to automate routine lighting schedules, improve security and boost energy efficiency in residential and light commercial applications.

Featuring a pre-programmed schedule templates and a range of mobile programming options, Intermatic says contractors can install the device in minutes, without a network connection or smart home hub.  

Ideal for home lighting and light motor applications, both Ascend configurations include a large backlit LCD and pre-programmed templates, as well as Astronomic dusk-to-dawn settings and automatic daylight saving time adjustment.

Installers and homeowners can create and update schedules using an Apple or Android device via the Ascend Smart Timer app. Once onboarded, homeowners can also use voice commands to control their Ascend Smart through integration with Amazon Alexa.
