Now featuring increased widgets and improved definition, the Equinox range offers a modern interface that can be controlled on the go, via a smartphone App. Modern interfaces combined with powerful InFusion Controllers seamlessly integrate subsystems and enhance the user experience through the creation of individual profile settings. The touch screen range is intuitive, easy to use and has been designed with the end user in mind, incorporating both light and presence sensors they can be programmed to respond to ambient light and/or detect the user so that the display is always visible, even in darkness. The Vantage Equinox 73 provides a three layer user interface, via a seven inch LCD touch screen. Via this large screen, users have the ability to view three widgets at any one time with ultimate control over their environment through the ability to edit and create new scenes.
