Philips Pronto’s new user interface was designed to provide integrators with a custom look without spending hours in the design process.
The new Philips Pronto UI is great option for car lovers.
The new interfaces showcase a complete new look for Pronto controllers as every last detail has been redesigned to fit a car theme, mimicking the dashboard and design elements of some of the most popular luxury and performance vehicles on the market.
Five themes have been created, each modeling after a different brand of sport car, but for those integrators who really want to “rev it up,” the new interface builder includes a full image gallery which allows integrators to build their own interface using the included buttons and backgrounds.
The new interface includes various templates for the most commonly used control activities like multiroom lighting control, as well as HVAC and shade control. Two-way control is also possible for tuners and the HVAC system.
The design of the new interfaces is completely succinct with that of the car it is trying to replicate. Hit the start button and the user will hear a roaring engine while the macro is executing. The car logo on the home page allows instant access to the Pronto’s panel system settings and the battery gauge and WiFi signal strength are redesigned to look like the car’s gas gauges. Transport activities on the controller have been designed to look like a speed needle and have several positions corresponding to different functions. The interface even features a leather look as its background.
Different activities feature different background images of the same car. For example, the car’s headlights control the room’s lighting control and the car’s dashboard radio controls the room’s audio.
Multi-room user interfaces are implemented in the lighting and HVAC control activities by using the rotary wheel to scroll through different rooms. With the ProntoScript application modules, the two-way IP communications allows users to download photo albums and check the weather, all from their control panel.
The new user interfaces are currently available for Pronto’s TSU9400, TSU9600, and TSU9800 and are available from the Pronto Professional website (for authorized Pronto dealers only.) Dealers should contact their sales representative to obtain access to the password protected file/site.
