AVidea Group Launches iminate Keypad and Dimmer
the Keypad and the Dimmer provide scalable automation solutions through built-in Wi-Fi network and super simple user interface
Melbourne, FL – April 24, 2018 – AVidea Group (AViG), a consumer electronics manufacturer, announces two new iminate products, the Keypad and the Dimmer. Debuting in booth N3227 at InfoComm 2018, the Keypad and the Dimmer are scalable home automation solutions for home and building.
The Keypad provides simple, one-touch control of hundreds of devices. Lighting, door locks, window shades and music systems are just some of the applications. The Keypad’s status and backlights deliver instant feedback, communicating a variety of information, including the battery charge level of an electric car in the garage, weather alerts or if the garage is open or closed. Users can know all this and more at a glance. Users can even change the status of the Keypad to appear only when they’re approaching the system Or simply set the color to match their décor – with over a million colors to choose from, there are no limits with the Keypad.
Available in four versions, to deliver ultimate flexibility, the Keypad HV (high voltage) installs in a standard wall box and accepts either AC or DC power. It’s two-button Decora® design makes it perfect for three-way switch applications. The Keypad LV (low voltage) is for those locations where high voltage wiring isn’t present. Power this with low-voltage on a Category wire, or simply put in a 9V battery. It will last up to a year, and the Keypad LV will let you know when it’s time to change the battery. For ultimate flexibility, the Keypad SM (surface mount) accepts 4- AAA batteries and is surface mounted. Users can simply put it on the wall, or on a desk, or carry it around. Finally, the 5 Button has more buttons for applications that need it, such as music streamers, and can be used for lighting and other control as well.
The Dimmer has all the same features, and controls lighting or a fan. The Dimmer is specifically engineered to maximize the benefits of today’s digital lighting. Users can simply replace an existing light switch with the Dimmer, and suddenly a whole new world awaits. With the power to know exactly how much energy is being used, users can monitor and take control of energy bills at the single device level. The Dimmer contains a light sensor to monitor and maintain preset lighting levels to never allow the room to get dark, or surprise users by suddenly turning on the lights
Like all iminate products, no central hub is required, so scaling the system is easy. Users can start with a single Keypad or Dimmer and scale from there on their timetable, to meet a specified budget.
iminate is affordable, too. The Dimmer’s suggested retail is $129.95; the Keypad HV – $79.95; the Keypad LV – $59.95; the Keypad SM – $49.95; and the 5 Button – $79.95.
“The Dimmer and the Keypad provide homeowners and light-commercial owners with the power to control their space with the touch of a button,” said Joseph Howell, the Chief Executive Officer of AVidea Group. “One exciting feature of iminate is the ability to include devices from different buildings on the same system. They can be in the garage, next door, across town, or on the other side of the globe and still be part of a single system.”
In addition to providing a flexible suite of products that fulfill most automation functions, iminate interfaces with hundreds of third party systems (from window shades to door locks to irrigation systems and many more); provides voice control via Amazon Echo and Google Assistant; and will control a Sonos® system. iminate’s software products simplify the entire smart home and smart building process.
The iminate suite contains a total of 14 products including electronic dimmers and motor controllers, door and window sensors, occupancy sensors, third party system interfaces, smart phone apps and a browser-based management dashboard. iminate’s software products simplify the entire smart home and smart building process. iminate’s “Imagine simple” philosophy drives the engineering decisions that affect every stage of system implementation – operation, system design and installation. A perfect solution for the home or building owner, hotelier and B&B host, iminate manages energy costs and provides an elegant user experience, as well as add value and profitability for the integrator with robust and reliable products.
