Crestron’s SSW room availability hallway sign will be shipping from the end of June. Wall mounted outside meeting rooms, the SSW illuminates bright green to indicate an available room, and red to indicate an occupied room. The SSW is perfectly visible from up to 15 metres away whilst still remaining energy efficient, utilising less than 2W.
“The SSW is the ideal way to provide long-range visibility to rooms and room availability,” comments Eric Johnson, technology manager, Integration Solutions at Crestron. “With so many more spaces in offices today, this is an effective, simple solution to a big problem.”
Integrators simply connect the SSW to a Crestron TSW x60 Series touch screen via the included 15′ USB cable for a programming-free solution with instant out of the box functionality. Alternatively, multiple hallway signs can be connected to a Crestron control system up to 3,000 feet away via Cresnet cable.
The SSW can be custom engraved with the room name for easy identification, or left blank. Crestron Engraver software provides a choice of font sizes and the option of one or two lines of text. By connecting to a Crestron control system and using Crestron Studio or SIMPL, programmers can utilise the custom RGB capabilities of the SSW such as displaying company or team colours, adjusting brightness, fading in and out in 1% increments and flashing.
The LED module installs flush with the wall via a single gang box or p-ring that allows connection to a Cresnet or USB cable. The acrylic face of the sign attaches with two screws. The designer moulding slides over the sconce-style acrylic sign and attaches with two built-in magnets.
