Sometimes things get too complicated when it comes to having a system of controlling the lights at home or at the office. Rako Controls provides a simple lighting control in a sophisticated world. Rako Controls is leading the way in providing state of the art digital dimming technology. Their innovative solutions meet the needs of a diverse range of applications by offering lighting systems that are simple to use, easy to install, creative and cost effective. As you would imagine, Rako Wireless Controls have all the basics right but where they outsmart other offerings is through quick and effortless installation. Basically, the Rako Controls devices provide all the benefits of a sophisticated lighting control system but without the hassle of rewiring. Indeed, the Rako modules can be quickly and easily installed into any environment, domestic or commercial, from hotel bedrooms and function rooms to restaurants and churches.
The installation of most scene set dimmers today involves most of the time a complete rewiring. The Rako lighting control equipment overcomes this problem immediately making retro-fit simple. Unlike the most conventional systems, the Rako control panels communicate with dimmer modules using wireless radio communication. This allows the addressable dimmers to be fitted locally to the light fittings. With 65,000 possible addresses and a range of 15m, or 100m with a booster, the Rako Wireless Controls can accommodate the largest of schemes. Each control panel can select up to 4 preset scenes plus off and has a master raise and lower. The system commissioning and the programming of scenes can be performed from the control panel, hand held or from your PC using the incorporated intuitive software.
Rako Wireless Lighting Controls – Whole House Control scheme
Below is a simple suggestion of installing the Rako Lighting Controls at home – whole house lighting control scheme. The description and functions of the devices are described below.
- The Rako Master Control(top right corner device) – For ultimate simplicity and control, have the whole house control in the entrance hall. The panels can be set to give ‘Master’ control allowing the whole house to be switched on or off at the touch of a button.
- The Rako Timeclock(right, middle) – The Rako Timeclock module allows timed events to be replayed with dawn/dusk times and ‘holiday mode’ mimics normal lighting usage in a vacant property. With mapping and macro functions the timeclock can become the hub for systems requiring more sophisticated programming giving access to pathways of light, sequencing and conditional events.
- The Rako Rack Options (right, bottom) – When it is necessary to wire back to one location or for larger installations the RAK-4 can be stacked to form 8, 12 or 16 way cabinets and with one Rx-Link receiver module located anywhere in the building, it still allows Rako wall panels to communicate without data cabling.
