Convenience & Security with Home-Icon Macros

Home-Icon enhances homeowners' lifestyles by automating everyday tasks, such as setting lighting levels for TV or movie viewing. For convenient whole-house ambient control, the Home-Icon Color Touch Screen control features one-touch macros that combine different room-lighting 'scenes'.

  • With macros, one touch and a whole house can be illuminated with a warmly-lit 'Welcome' scene - or lighting can be set to gently wake occupants in the morning.
  • For entertaining, Master Control macros pre-set mood lighting and other features throughout a home and grounds.
  • To softly illuminate a designated route through a house or garden, key lamps can be brought on with the Path of Light macro triggered by pressure-mats or switches.
  • Creative and eye-catching sequence changes can accent architectural features - or highlight treasured possessions - with the 'Exhibition Auto-rotate' scene-selection macro.
  • And when a home is unoccupied, a Vacation macro mimics normal patterns of usage, giving the appearance of normal occupation.

Users can easily program all home-lighting levels for these Welcome, Entertainment, TV or Movie 'scenes', using the wall-mounted Home-Icon Color Touch Screen, then simply select or schedule scene/s at any time via switch panel or remote control.

Installing & Commissioning Home-Icon systems

This results in space reduction as

well as simplified wiring and cost savings. The Home-Icon system connects to PFX or Enviroscene systems via an RS485 CAT5 twisted pair and requires a power supply connection.

Futronix provides in-house and on-site staff training, and commissioning through approved engineers.
