Ideally suited for retrofitting: Corlo wireless push-button
KNX extensions have always involved unpleasant renovating work because no cable connections were available. Laying cables means having dirt and dust in the house. Consequently, people think hard about whether they want to add another push-button. At Light + Building 2016, Elsner Elektronik presented new KNX wireless solutions that make this problem a thing of the past.
The Corlo system, which has already received several awards, now includes a wireless push-button. Whether single or double push-button, both versions can be retrofitted without any wiring. The operating commands are transmitted by radio. Integrated solar cells provide the required power. The included 3V battery means the push-button is immediately ready for use. A smart home owner does not have to wait until the solar cells have been charged, but can start using the push-button immediately.
Customers may choose between a pure black or chromed version for both the frames and the actualpush-buttons. Real glass renders the device visually attractive.
The manufacturer uses the global standard KNW RF S for its wireless products. Wireless and wired products can be used in combination. A line coupler lets wireless and wired devices communicate. KNX wireless actuators ensure that shutter motors may, for example, be operated by radio.
The wireless installation not only facilitates retrofitting, but also supports flexible room partitioning, since the push-button can, for instance, also be installed on sliding walls.
