Switches, Dimmers, and Keypads
Use basic controls like switches and dimmers to control lighting, or try out programmed keypads to control lighting, sound, video, and more. However, even something as basic as a light switch can be programmed to do multiple things and run automated tasks. You can customize the lighting and keypads for countless scenarios and navigation. Lighting scenes, for example, are a popular way to use keypads. Just assign a lighting scene to a button. GTS can help you create lighting scenes, you can create them yourself, or you can create your own scenes on a touchscreen or with the on-screen Navigator. You can also use switches, dimmers, and keypads to control lights and lighting scenes. Wireless switches and dimmers can control the light load directly, just like a standard light switch or dimmer. But the buttons on all switches, dimmers, and keypads can also be programmed to control any combination of lights, audio/video devices, blinds, gates, and security settings.
Also known as centralized lighting, Panelized Lighting is a variation on the typical line-voltage infrastructure, which has been used in homes and businesses for years . Panelized lighting utilizes a centralized/star wiring configuration, where circuits from the breaker box are routed first to a centrally-located enclosure (panel), which houses dimmer, relay, and other system control modules. From there, the switched/dimmed circuits are routed directly to the loads . Control of loads in a panelized lighting system is achieved with low-voltage keypads, located in key areas throughout the home or business. Low voltage cabling and keypads are typically installed by GTS.
