Philips Pronto launched a line of accessories today designed by Polar Bear Solutions. These new accessories will enhance the company’s control solutions and give integrators new options when installing any Pronto product. The new line consists of two Wall Docking Stations, a Power Sensor Relay and a Video Sensor.
The Wall Docking Stations are flush mount in-wall docks that allow the Pronto TSU9600 and TSU9800 control panels to be stored in wall, extending the possible uses of the panels and allowing the product to compete with other more expensive solutions.
The PBS9600W allows for removal of the TSU9600 from the wall allowing for mobility while retaining functionality. The 9600W wall docking station also has a unique feature and hosts a set of four built-in buttons located at the base of the dock and can be used for critical services regardless of whether the Pronto TSU9600 is charging in the dock or has been left elsewhere in the room. These buttons allow for integration into an existing lighting control solution such as a Lutron or iLight system. They can also be used to control a projector screen or automate other aspects of the home or property.
The PBS9800W flush wall mount kit comes in two parts, the wall box and the main caddy and frame. The bezel can be removed to gain access to the USB connector and power switch necessary for updating, without the need to remove the complete unit from the wall.
