New Cameo® Keypads Offer Added Flexibility For Lighting Control And Audio Distribution Designs

Cameo® Split-Button Keypads Provide a Wide Variety of Button Configurations, Colors, and Sizes for Wired and Wireless Control of Lighting and Multi-room Audio

Indianapolis, IN, September 8, 2011 - Crestron announced today that it has upgraded the popular Cameo® family of keypads. The stylish new models offer a slew of versatile options including easy -to -install wired and infiNET EX™ wireless connectivity, new button configurations, an array of color choices and a new Cameo Express line of affordable keypads. Combining contemporary styling with highly customizable system design options, Cameo keypads provide greater flexibility for controlling lighting and audio distribution in residential and commercial environments, while satisfying the most demanding interior designers.

"The new Cameo keypads provide virtually unlimited design options for homeowners and developers, and also system designers, lighting specifiers and interior designers," said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "Wired or wireless, contemporary or traditional, available in multiple colors with nearly any combination of button layouts, Cameo keypads offer a solution for every budget."

A clever split -button design provides an option for two additional buttons per keypad, enabling custom control configurations of up to eight buttons. The two added "split buttons" are ideal for controlling up/down audio volume or up/down light dimming, which frees up an additional button space for another desired control preset and allowing more lighting scenes or audio sources on a single keypad. Auto -dimmable backlit text and enhanced LED feedback provide real -time status indication of each button function while enabling occupants to easily read buttons in both dark and fully lit rooms.

Cameo Flush Mount keypads offer the same high performance control and engaging user experience in a low -profile, minimalist design that remains discreet in any setting. Occupying just one -third the space of a wall mount keypad, Cameo Flush Mount keypads install easily and cleanly in a drywall cutout without requiring a gang box.

Built -in Versiport control ports enable local connection for a range of devices including Crestron GLS Occupancy Sensors and Photocells, contact closure devices, and other devices for monitoring room occupancy, ambient light levels, door closures, and other conditions, as part of a complete Crestron Integrated Home or Integrated Building Technology solution.

Cameo Express keypads offer legendary Cameo performance in a budget -friendly design and provide an ideal complimentary control solution in tandem with Cameo Express dimmers. Available in a standard mount footprint, seamless integration with a Crestron infiNET EX™ wireless network provides an affordable, reliable solution for retrofits and new construction.
