Crestron announced today its new line of Horizon keypads are available to order. Available in configurable single-gang models that combine up to four across, the new line offers designer aesthetics, better button feel, four different button styles, programmable multi-color backlighting, interchangeable custom top and bottom trim pieces and Cresnet wired communications.
The Horizon line is available in single-gang and up to four keypads can be ganged together. Dealers can choose from four button styles: single, side-to-side rocker, small up-down rocker and large up-down rocker. Top and bottom trim pieces are interchangeable to suit any décor and provide the ultimate in style and elegance.
For better readability under any lighting conditions, every model in the Horizon line includes multi-color 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.
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 four-wire network that provides bidirectional communication and 24VDC power for Cresnet devices. Cresnet supports up to 252 keypads and other devices.
Horizon keypads accessories with a similar aesthetic will be available for a 120VAC outlet, a 120VAC outlet + USB charger and keystone jack. Here are all the details.
