Vantage Controls will go to the CEDIA EXPO with its new Equinox series of LCD touchscreens, which combine control of lighting, entertainment and comfort systems from one control device and eliminates “wall acne” in the luxury market, the company said. An Equinox app for tablets will also be new.
Vantage’s $1,500 dual-gang Equinox 7-UX delivers control over systems throughout the house, including home-theater control.
The in-wall LCD touchscreens provides “a level of precise control unachievable with mobile devices,” said marketing VP Andrew Wale. The user interface is said to simplify control, and that, plus a new widget platform, make programming easier and faster than before, he said.
The most basic single-gang $500 Equinox4 ships in September, followed by the larger $1,500 7-UX in December and single-gang $1,000 4-UX in the second quarter of 2013. They connect to the company’s Infusion control system, which integrates multiple home systems and is targeted to new construction and remodeling jobs.
