The VIA!2-8.4 Wireless Home Control Touchpanel is one of the current additions to its VIA! family of touchpanels. The 8.4" LCD color screen employs 802.11b/g wireless technology to provide control of A/V and home automation applications. The unit, which provides web-enabled screens without the typical pop-up and crash problems that plague other devices, is programmed using Elan's ViaTOOLS software by your integration specialist. A Tabletop docking/recharging cradle is included. A companion piece, the SS1 System Control Station, converts each button press on the panel into commands that all other installed components understand. Those commands can be issued by the SS1 in IR or RS-232 serial formats. On board sense inputs and relay outputs provide automation features that can instantly lower the motorized projection screen in your Home Theater or open tha relay controlled drapes in the Master Bedroom. And the SS1 interfaces easily with ELAN's other serial controllers, providing wireless access to whole-house lighting, security and temperature control systems from a VIA!2-8.4. A SS1 is required for each VIA!2-8.4 Wireless Touch Panel. A dedicated network and wireless access point (WAP) are required for the VIA!2-8.4.
