Crestron Unveils New Horizon Keypads at ISE 2018

Crestron announced its new line of Horizon keypads this month at ISE 2018. Available in highly configurable single-gang models that combine up to four across, the new line offers better aesthetics, four different button styles, programmable multi-color backlighting, interchangeable custom top and bottom trim pieces and Cresnet wired communications. Crestron’s Horizon line of keypads are being launched in Hall-2, Stand 2-C20 at ISE 2018, 6 – 9 February, 2018.

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.

Enhanced readability under any lighting conditions, every model in the Horizon line includes multi-color backlighting that illuminates the high-quality laser engraved text on the buttons. When the button is pressed, it glows two to three times brighter than the inactive buttons. And each button can be programmed to glow in any color.

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 keypad accessories will be available for a 120VAC outlet, a 120VAC outlet + USB charger and keystone jack. Here are all the specs.
