Rako Controls Integrates Bluos

Smart lighting controls manufacturer, Rako, has announced that its control panels are now able to integrate with BluOS, the platform behind Bluesound and NAD’s hi res multiroom audio products.

The BluOS ecosystem now includes over 50 products, including wireless speakers, single zone stereo systems, AV receivers and rack mount solutions. There are various performance and connectivity options, allowing integrators to fully tailor the audio system to the client’s needs.

Following the development of a plugin that gives playback and volume control, as well as pre-set selection from any Rako control panel via a user’s Hub, Rako controls now work with any BluOS-enabled product.

Peter Broome, Director at Rako, says, “We’re thrilled that Rako customers can now control their BluOS audio and entertainment environment with the simple touch of a button. With this integration we are improving compatibility and functionality, and helping to deliver a seamless, integrated experience for users so they can enjoy their homes the way they choose to.”

The move is intended to offer flexibility to integrators while delivering a better end product to users. As Peter Gibb, CI Business Development Manager, EMEA at Lenbrook International, says, “BluOS was designed for the purpose of making it easy for music lovers to access and control their content, integrating with Rako takes that a step further. Rako, like us, believe in creating enriching environments through our products, so we are delighted to collaborate to improve the user experience.”
