Crestron has announced that its new line of Horizon™ keypads are available to pre-order. Available in highly configurable single-US-gang models that combine up to four across, the new line offers designer aesthetics, superior button feel, four different button styles, programmable multi-colour backlighting, interchangeable custom top and bottom trim pieces, and Cresnet® wired communications. Crestron keypads deliver an advanced custom control solution as part of a complete Crestron smart home.
“These stunningly beautiful keypads provide Crestron residential dealers, as well as interior designers and architects, with incredible flexibility in both control and design,” said Michael Short, Global Residential Marketing Manager at Crestron. “Inviting to the touch and appealing to the eye, Horizon keypads deliver a premier user experience combined with bespoke design for homeowners.”
The Cresnet bus is the communications backbone for Horizon keypads, along with many Crestron lighting controllers, shade motors, sensors, and other devices. Cresnet is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides bidirectional communication and 24VDC power for Cresnet devices. Cresnet supports up to 252 keypads and other devices.
The Creston Horizon Keypads will be shipping in EMEA from June 2018.
