The Mercury® DK1 and the DK1E lighting control kits present an ideal out-of-the-box opportunity for electrical installers to exploit the growing trend towards a smarter home. Described as entry-level systems, both the DK1 and the DK1E kits contain everything needed to control one lighting circuit with the now standard Touch Screen control plate. The DK1 kit is controlled using a wired touch screen plate, and the DK1E has built-in Ethernet and enables wireless control via iPad and iPhone using Hamiltons downloadable APP, available on the APP Store.
The customer benefits of installing a smart lighting control system are compelling: controlling ambiance and mood light levels at the touch of a button to enhance carefully planned living space; satisfying the insatiable appetite to remotely control all aspects of our homes/lives via an app, and of course the possible significant energy savings makes lighting control a natural choice.
When installing the Touch Screen controller, absolutely no commissioning work is required as the unit is pre-loaded with the necessary software. The process of setting the light scenes is not dissimilar to programming a car radio - simply hold your finger on the icon button until it locks in!
