Australian designed lighting control from Zencontrol and Evolt

Australian designed lighting control from zencontrol and EvoltZencontrol has announced its new generation of lighting control systems has been launched in Australia by Evolt as part of a collaboration between the two organisations.

The first Australian developed offering of its kind, Zencontrol has been designed to address the problems faced by installers, reduce set-up time and improve identification through the use of smart software and systems. It is built on the principle that a modern building control system should be simple to install and use after the development team identified that the market was not proactively trying to improve the user experience of lighting control systems.

According to Zencontrol managing director Joshua Newell, while smart lighting controls have been around for a long time, installers still spend many unproductive hours trying to work with these systems, only to find them lacking capabilities or requiring significant decoding or debugging of simple issues.

“Using smart technology, Zencontrol automates all the tasks that used to be manual. It is a ‘plug and play’ solution that easily integrates numerous building services including HVAC, AV, lights, sensors, blinds and security to name just a few. This is critical in the highly connected environment that Australia lives and works in.”

Zencontrol is based on the latest DALI version 2 standard to provide seamless integration between devices in the network.

With Zencontrol’s new room controller, a base build installation can be achieved without the use of a computer, laptop or programmer. Simple, out of the box set-up and automatic fault recovery keeps the rooms running automatically.

“Zencontrol is a cutting edge modern control system, which customers and installers have been wanting for years,” says Joshua.

Evolt group marketing manager Eduardo Yudowski says Zencontrol is also designed to target cyber-security risk in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT).

“IoT is exposing companies to avoidable risks, and many businesses aren’t implementing industry standard security practices to protect their systems against cyber-attacks. Zencontrol sets the standard in security with the use of industry proven and backed TLS 1.2. This is not just encryption but a complete security layer that comprises of multiple secure technologies.”

Zencontrol enables building owners to:

  • Reduce the costs associated with energy consumption
  • Quickly and efficiently monitor and control multiple sites remotely using Cloud control
  • Manage and maintain emergency lighting in small tenancies, as well as the entire building
  • Reduce costs, increase speed and remove the risk of a single point of failure through the installation of a single controller.
