Control 4 Mode Lighting Integration

We have just completed integration of a mode Evolution system with a Control 4 home control system.

The integration is a true integration with the manufacturer written control 4 drivers allowing full two way control of the mode lighting system including dimmers, relays and control plates.

I was working on this project for Mode Lighting along with Garry Mcdermott of Home Innovation

Mode Lighting – Edin Ipad integration

I received a message from head of R&D at Mode Lighting this morning to let me know that they are nearing completion of their Iphone app for controlling Edin Systems. The Edin Network processor should also alo contol over exsisting installations using the Iphone , Ipad and Itouch devices. Watch this space for more info:

First pictures of the Mode eDIN Network Processor’s Floorplan plugin-software-app running on Apple’s brand-new iPad.

iPad users can navigate a building and use the multi-touch features of the iPad to zoom into areas. Energy usage is shown live on the screen.

Users can lighting levels globally, or by area or by channel. Users can select scenes and even make adjustments to levels using the touch-screen.

Come and see a live demonstration at the Light&Building trade fair, hall 4.1 stand D11.

Personal Controls Programming

We often program properties for developers with a simple but usable “show flat” configuration. This gives the basic requirements that allow a system’s potential to be demonstrated.

When the property is sold we are called back to personalise the lighting system for the new owners. We generally go in a couple of weeks after the new owners have moved in as this gives a chance to get used to the space and how they are going to use it. The programming visit lasts a day with a consultation followed by a full re-program and a full demonstration.

We recently completed just one of these visits for some new owners in an East lothian property and were asked to return to assist with the setup and commissioning of the multi room AV system in addition to the work on the lighting control system.

Remote Control

We wish them all the best in their new home.

Integrating control of VELUX INTEGRA® Windows

veluxThe new range of  VELUX INTEGRA® skylights allow remote control via infra red for skylights above stairwells and at height.

The infra red control while very advanced can be imitated by an infra red blaster as part of your lighting or building control system. In this way the control of the windows can be grouped into system macros  or timed rules as part of the overall control schema.

The control over roof lights in this way allow groups of roof lights to be controlled together.

Contact us to discuss your integration needs.
