New ‘panelized’ hardwired lighting control system is the first for Control4, best known for its wireless home automation systems.
It took a few years for Control4 —best known for wireless home automation—to perfect its first ever hardwired centralized lighting system but “it’s really here,” says Paul Williams, VP of security and communications products. The system, which Control4 calls “panelized” lighting, was shown in its finished form at ISE 2013 in Amsterdam in January. The solution is Ethernet-based, readily integrated into an IP-enabled automation ecosystem.
The panels and termination blocks are “ready to go,” says Williams, “so dealers can start spec’ing it.”
Control4 added a few niceties to the system since it debuted a few years ago, including some features you don’t see in every hardwired lighting control.
The new lighting system is available in both U.S.-centric panel configurations and European DIN rail mounting.
The system can operate from 120V to 277V allowing it to operate worldwide in commercial and residential applications.
