zencontrol is a lighting control system designed specifically for modern lighting systems. The underlying philosophy behind the zencontrol design is that ‘it just works’ – straight out of the box and without the complexity commonly associated with such systems. The control system has full DALI support, cloud connectivity for commissioning and, monitoring, automatic commissioning of standard features and advanced programming/integration through web and mobile interfaces. zencontrol is fully DALI 2 compliant and upgradable to future DALI standards.
One of the major innovations is the automatic commissioning, working alongside the advanced, cloud-based software. These make the whole commissioning process more straightforward with less risk of issues on site and, additionally, the system fixes contractor mistakes automatically. Another feature is the circadian rhythm functionality, using the intensity and colour of light to trigger hormones and engender positive effects for occupants.
zencontrol also makes integration easy by supporting BACnet over IP (client and server), RS232 connections, Modbus over IP, volt free I/O, KNX over IP and cloud based API. Additionally, as BACnet, Modbus and KNX support is at the application controller level, no additional controller between the lighting control system and BMS is required. This reduces cost, increases speed and removes the risk of a single point failure. While all zencontrol systems can operate without a cloud connection, adding cloud provides a faster and more manageable solution.
