The interface takes many forms in today's installations and automation projects. Again; as with most aspects of automation, barriers to finding the right solution in face of this are no longer linear - and so the options and appropriate solutions should not be either accordingly.
From job to job, and from client to client - the environment always changes, as do the applications and the level integration required. We are not reduced solely to remote controls or tablets and phones. Clients may require simple in-wall keypads for a bar or restuarant - or highly customisable attractive in-wall touchscreens to aid simple and intuitive usage in their automated home.
As such; RTI have a host of keypad and touchscreen options that will cater for almost every need - whether it be easy to use interfaces for commercial applications, or more 'considered' options for a host of residential applications.
