Crestron has announced that it is shipping its wireless Horizon EX keypads and dimmers. Featuring matching dimmers and keypads, the new line of wall-box controllers provides an advanced custom control solution as part of a complete Crestron smart home.
Horizon EX universal dimmers are not designed with aesthetics in mind – they are also powerful. There’s no minimum load requirement and they offer more reliable LED dimming.
“Now, with the Horizon EX line, our residential systems integrators can deliver a consistent, elegant look throughout the home for hybrid systems,” says John Clancy, VP Residential at Crestron. “You can’t tell the difference between the dimmers and keypads. The dimmers even have backlit buttons.”
Available in black, white, and almond with highly configurable one, two, three or four gang boxes, the Horizon EX line offers designer aesthetics, button feel, four different button styles, interchangeable custom top and bottom trim pieces to suit any décor (faceplates sold separately), and wireless communications.
For enhanced readability under any lighting conditions, every model in the Horizon EX line includes multi-colour backlighting that illuminates the laser engraved text on the buttons. If desired, when the button is pressed it can glow up to two to three times brighter than the inactive buttons. Moreover, each button can be programmed to glow in any color – it’s completely customizable.
With built-in Crestron infiNET EX wireless mesh technology, Horizon EX dimmers and keypads can reliably transmit and receive commands and intelligently integrate with lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and AV for a complete smart home.
