The Berker range includes some of the most ornate and technically advanced wiring accessories on the market, targeted at people looking to embellish even the most intricate details in their homes. The range includes switches and sensors designed with high-grade materials such as aluminium, glass, and CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements for the more extravagant interiors. A number of which are built to accompany sophisticated building automation systems within intelligent homes to control things like lighting and heating at the touch of a very stylish button. The glimmering attention grabber in the range is the TS Crystal Ball. At the heart of the switch is a multi-faceted, polished CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements crystal under which a touch-sensitive optical reflection sensor is concealed. A gentle touch – and the Crystal Ball operates lights, blinds, shutters, and much more. The range also includes the TS Sensor which is available in Black, Aluminium and Polar White, and has a combination of up to eight functions, with a room thermostat and display which are concealed under a smooth surface that can be custom-labelled on request. Actions such as lighting, heating or motors can be controlled with a single touch offering a variety of possibilities through activation. The B.IQ is another prestige switch in the range which is also available in glass, stainless steel and aluminium, with up to four functional elements. As part of a building automation system many functions can be combined in a single control unit: a temperature controller, information display, tactile sensor and timer. Lighting scenarios and other applications can be adapted to changing needs easily and without any software. Steve York, Building Automation Market Manager for Hager said: “Building automation is quickly taking over direct functions in the home and it’s the little things that make a difference. Hager is proud to incorporate the Berker design expertise as part of its portfolio and for more than five decades we have attached the greatest importance to the functionality and reliability of our systems, reflected also in the form of our products. Berker by Hager switches are therefore the ultimate wiring accessories for intelligent homes that get the job done whilst making a strong aesthetic statement.” www.hager.co.uk
