Your choice of dimming levels can be selected from the remote control
supplied with the P400. Programme dimming levels, master raise and
lower, fade rate and sleep timer duration – all from the convenient
remote control. Or adjust any of the lighting levels without storing
them. Choose power up dimming options, either the last dimming level
selected or OFF. Additionally, the P400’s remote control commands
can be ‘learnt’ by any universal learning remote control.
Programme the P400’s timer to select any scene at any
time and on any day of the week - up to 70 different events each week
(10 per day).
In the bedroom, the P400 sleep delay timer can be set to automatically
switch lights off for up to two hours after being selected. Or set
the timer to wake you up gently in the morning by fading up your bedroom
For living spaces, uses range from ‘welcome’ scenes -
which automatically fade the lighting on for when you return home
- to selecting security settings. Use the timer to control lighting
for 4 channels – set scenes to appear at pre-programmed times
and adjust the atmosphere of a room or space, even if you are away
from your home.
Programme a security sequence that can last several minutes or many
hours, giving the impression that the property is occupied. Automatically
sequence through your pre-set scenes, displaying each one for any
variable length of time.
The P400 domestic dimmer can control the lighting in up to 4 different areas or rooms � meaning you can set 20 scenes in each of the 4 rooms.
For bigger systems providing multiple channels of lighting with even more flexibility, multiple P400 and/or P800 dimmers can be connected together via the in-built switchpanel databus.
Create dramatic lighting displays with the P400 by linking a series
of scenes with pre-programmed duration and fade rate. This is ideal
for your home cinema – you can easily create a ‘transition’
light show before and after a movie. Also applicable for architectural
highlighting, product display and exhibitions.
With the P400 you can effortlessly control the lighting in your
own home, as shown in the Demonstration of Scene Dimming below.
In this first scene the lighting
has been programmed to create a comfortable atmosphere.
The second scene creates a bright
ambient atmosphere - with the emphasis on highlighting pictures and
ornaments it is ideal for entertaining.
The third scene is set for watching
movies. Main lights and cabinet lights are off, with the ceiling and
wall lights dimmed to create a home cinema look.
In the fourth scene lighting
is set to provide a level of dimming suitable for watching television.
The main lighting is provided by the spots, with cabinet lights dimmed
so as not to distract the viewer.
A fifth scene could provide low level lighting throughout the room
with lighting focused on the table area for dining.
A sixth scene could act as a minimum level
for security at night.
The twenty programmable scenes available
with the P400 offer a versatile choice of lighting effects suitable
for every mood.
