Vantage announces the impending release of Equinox 4, the first in an expanding line of easy-to-use in-wall LCD Keypads that epitomize the ultimate luxury space User Experience.
Equinox 4 is a single-gang LCD keypad that combines the advantages of a full-sized touchscreen and the simplicity of a multi-gang keypad with the drawbacks of neither, presenting users with a beautiful, minimalist on-wall presence, and a single layer user interface that provides quick and intuitive control of lighting scenarios, interior climate, and audio systems like no product before it. Equinox 4 also gives users and integrators their first taste of Vantage’s new User Experience Platform, a bold, overarching initiative that will result in a unified signature physical and graphical aesthetic that remains consistent across all control devices in a Vantage system.
Equinox 4 is designed to be the simplest, most straightforward path to accessing lighting control, comfort, and local zone audio. Given its “always on” design, the keypad senses presence, and wakes up with a simple gesture; it’s as reliable and intuitive as a light switch, but with much added functionality. And, with two tactile buttons, it’s incredibly flexible and easy to update as the user’s needs and preferences change. Its Vantage station bus connection also means that full compatibility with the existing InFusion station bus-based systems, as well as Vantage’s new Enhanced InFusion Lighting Solution.
In addition to the obvious ease-of-use benefits for end-users, the Vantage User Experience Platform will also provide dealers with a vastly simplified programming and integration experience, greatly reducing the time, expense, and headaches of designing complex control solutions.
Equinox 4 will be available in November.
