ISE 2014: Control4 shows wireless lighting control range5 February 2014
A new family of wireless lighting control products from Control4 is being demonstrated at the show. The company says the units will reduce programming complexity and are ideal for residential and commercial installations, both for retrofit and new construction projects.
The Wireless Adaptive Phase Dimmer is compatible with a broad range of dimmable load types including most LEDs, incandescents, halogens, electronic low voltage (solid state) transformers, magnetic (iron core) low voltage transformers, fluorescents and compact fluorescents. Control 4 claims the unit eliminates much of the guesswork associated with choosing the right dimmer for a project and alleviates the need to replace the dimmer when the load type changes in the future.
The Wireless Configurable Keypad enables one-touch control of lighting, as well as control of audio, video and security. It can be configured with two to seven custom-engraved, LED backlit buttons, using four different button sizes, for a total of 37 possible configurations.
A third unit, the Wireless Keypad Dimmer, transforms a standard light switch or dimmer into a fully customisable keypad and dimmer, combining the capabilities of the Adaptive Phase Dimmer with Configurable Keypad.
All are able to be integrated with the new Control4 Panelized Lighting product range and feature an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness of status LEDs and button backlighting.
