Crestron today announced its new 2-Button Wireless Keypad (HTT-B2EX-BATT); the latest addition to its line of infiNET EX® wireless lighting control products. Available in black or white, the HTT-B2EX-BATT is battery-powered, portable and designed to control a wide range of applications, including as a bedside controller in homes and hotels, a personal workspace controller, or a conference room presenter selector. The new wireless keypad is sleek, lightweight and elegantly contoured to fit comfortably in the hand. Whether placed on a nightstand, end table or tethered to a lamp cord, the HTT-B2EX-BATT provides simple, convenient and reliable touch control of lights or shades.

"The sleek and attractive, 2-button keypad is uniquely designed to hold comfortably and offer simple, reliable control without unsightly wires," said Robin van Meeuwen, VP at Crestron International. "The controller is completely customisable, enabling customers to create a variety of commands for seamless room control in homes, hotels, restaurants and businesses."

Guest Rooms

Designed for guest rooms and suites, the HTT-B2EX-BATT provides a simple, convenient wireless controller for lighting, automation and entertainment. The bedside remote is fully-programmable to perform tasks such as turn on/off lights or open/close shades. Customised "Good Morning" or "Good Night" presets enable one-touch control of several room features at once. The optional lamp cord tether provides convenience with added security, so the keypad never checks out of the room. Similar to its use in hotel guest rooms and suites, the 2-button wireless keypad is also perfect for homes as a portable bedside controller.

Conference Room Presenter

The HTT-B2EX-BATT simplifies everyday tasks and functions in the corporate boardroom. The cost-effective, easy to use tabletop presentation interface offers one-touch control in a compact, stylish device. Using the HTT-B2EX-BATT; starting a presentation and switching between presenters is incredibly easy and intuitive. With a tap of the finger, any other presenter can take over the presentation at any time.

The 2-button keypad wirelessly connects to a Crestron control system, substantially reducing wiring and related labour costs of traditional wired systems. Using proven Crestron infiNET EX 2.4 GHz mesh network technology, the HTT-B2EX-BATT ensures bullet-proof performance in even the most extreme RF environments. The redundant nature of its mesh networking technology means that a command will never be missed which results in faultless operation.

The HTT-B2EX-BATT will begin shipping to EMEA beginning of September. To learn more about simplifying control in guest rooms and conference rooms, visit
