Located in a sleepy Gloucestershire hamlet, this handsome Cotswold stone house has been substantially updated, extended and modernised to very high standards of both traditional craftsmanship and modern technology.
The brief for the project was to create an automated lighting control system that would not only offer one touch button scene-setting controls, but would be sympathetic to the building and also intuitive to weekend guests.
The highly flexible nature of eDIN allows control of the open plan areas and individual rooms including blind controls and whole house commands for welcome and exit settings, party modes etc. Lighting and blinds are controlled by either the iCON keypads with their custom engraved buttons located at regular switch positions or by the wireless control system which can be accessed by web browser or a handy iOS or Android App. A selection of conventional switches, single gang push button control plates and double gang sized control plates, were used to operate the lighting and blinds throughout the house.
With an eDIN system installed, features not used initially can be programmed in later to allow the control system to adapt with the changing use of the property as lifestyles change, demand for energy efficiency and energy savings increase. Features available to the home owner include further integration with AV equipment, automated control to mimic occupation, security interfacing, control of colour changing fixtures and more.
iCON Control Plate
Scene selection is achieved via an elegant pushbutton plate. The iCON control plate utilises black or white rectangular push buttons that are available in a range of standard icons or that can be custom laser engraved with text, icon or language.
eDIN is designed to meet the demanding requirements of systems integrators, residential developers and designers alike in a simple, flexible, cost-effective system with a modular, DIN rail mounting, form-factor.
eDIN is easy to specify, install and commission, bringing intelligent lighting control within reach of small and medium sized projects.
