CommandFusion has announced that their latest product, the Solo, will be available to ship to customers by mid-September. The Solo is designed to easily give single rooms and smaller installations powerful control functionality at a cost effective price point. Key features include an Ethernet connection, a generous variety of commonly used control ports, two expansion slots, a powerful rules and scheduling engine and cloud monitoring.
“The Solo basically makes any device controllable over an IP network. It makes connecting multiple systems together very simple and also integrates seamlessly with our iViewer app,” says Jarrod Bell, Co-Founder, CommandFusion.
A built in Ethernet port gives the Solo immediate and simple connectivity to any standard network, while the communications expansion slot allows the user to easily add other protocol cards such as the DALI expansion card, which will be available soon after product launch.
Along with all the standard control ports you would expect, the Solo also features 10 built-in high power IR Blaster LEDs. The Blaster LED’s flood an area with infrared, allowing for wireless control of devices with an IR receiver. The built in IR Learner means that the user can learn codes directly on the Solo itself, with no additional equipment required.
A range of control port expansion cards will also be available soon after launch, these cards will allow for the user to customize the Solo to suit their requirements. The ability to add additional RS232/422/485 ports, IR ports, relays or other control ports will be very simple and cost effective. Open protocols will make it simple to interface with third-party control systems, and integration with CommandFusion’s own iViewer mobile application will be a simple affair.
The Solo will have an estimated retail price of $770 AUD and will be available through the CommandFusion distributor and dealer network.
