How Adapt Control works
Essentially there are two parts to any Adapt Control system. Firstly, there’s the backbone – the wiring. Naturally this is hidden behind your walls, just like ordinary wiring. The difference with Adapt is that you’ll have fewer visible switches, panels, thermostats and timers on your walls.
The second element is the brains of the system, “the black box”, which is accessible through a number of interfaces. These typically include a wall-mounted touch-screen panel or a handheld touch-screen tablet. The system can also be operated via your home computer and any remote PC or WAP phone. A truly user-friendly interface Adapt Control has been developed with the end-user in mind. The elegant wall-mounted panels and portable tablets feature large, easy-to-use touch-sensitive screens and familiar looking, easy to follow layouts and icons. The result is a system that’s so user-friendly it can be operated with ease by everyone in the family, from the youngest to the eldest, and even by self-confessed technophobes!
