Gira combines lighting and shade with System 3000 kit

At Light + Building in Frankfurt this week building systems specialist Gira introduced a number of products, including its significantly updated System 3000 blind controller.

Since its introduction last year, Gira says System 3000 has been one of its most popular new products, therefore its decision to bolster the shade control platform seems like the ideal move.

The Germany-based manufacturer has now integrated control for the lighting and blinds, allowing the a lighting and blind controller to not only fit all system top units, but also meaning the top units automatically detect whether they are placed on a light or blind insert and adjust their functionality accordingly. Resulting in a pretty comprehensive system made of only a few components, lowering storage volume required.

Previously comprised of Standard and Memory operating top units as well as the blind timer with display, additions to the line now include the Gira System 3000 blind timer and timer Bluetooth, the Gira System 3000 motion detector top unit 1.10 m Standard, the Gira System 3000 motion detector top unit 2.20 m Komfort Bluetooth and the Gira System 3000 presence and motion detector 360-degree top unit Bluetooth.

Bluetooth enables, in addition to manual or automatic control of functions, programming and operation via the Gira app with a smartphone or tablet.

The Gira System 3000 is available now.
