Clipsal Cbus has been the product of choice in the Australian market since 2001, mainly because it was owned by Clipsal the iconic electrical brand in Australia. Clipsal C-bus started the era of lighting control systems in Melbourne, Australia. Larger homes built in the late 90’s and 2000 had this system. The product is a very robust system used in large commercial projects to light hospitals and universities throughout Australia.
The main purpose of C-bus is to have a central location to control the whole homes lighting and blinds. This was generally done through a centralised touch screen. Through the toolkit software the programmers were able to program any switch to turn on any light or scene. Scenes in Lighting control is the ability to be able to create a feel to a home, turning on lights at different levels to create lovely mood lighting throughout a home.
Generally, C-bus was a part of an Integrated home automation system incorporating security and lighting. Some after market products like E-life, Multimedia dynamics, Home Touch Systems, and Clipsal Homegate all ran on a shuttle windows based PC. Other solutions like Push Controls and Leviton also gave the home owner a touch screen controls generally in the early 2000’s.
We are able to use the base infrastructure of C-bus lighting and overlay it with a newer control system like Control 4 or Crestron Home. To find out how your existing C-bus system can be incorporated into an App controlled solution get in touch with us.
