Lighting Design Guide 230V
User Interface Selection
User interfaces (keypads, dimmers, switches, and touchpanels) provide the link between the
control devices in the enclosure and the user. Typically these interfaces are prominently and
strategically located throughout a lighting design.
The lighting designer and/or integration contractor specifies the type of user interface required for
each location, based on function and user preference.
Keypads, touchpanels, dimmers and switches are available in a wide variety of choices, including
number of buttons, color of trim, color of the buttons, back lighting and even custom engraving on
The entire line of award-winning Crestron touchpanels can be used to enhance and simplify the
most demanding design.
The interfaces, the part of the system that your client sees and uses every day, must be both
functional and attractive. Crestron offers a wide variety of types and styles to suit the needs and
tastes of your client.
