Connect HomeWorks to a security system to activate lights in case of a
fire or burglar alarm. In the event of an intrusion, the inside lights
can be set to full ON and the outside lights can be set to FLASH to draw
attention. In the event of a fire, lights along the shortest path of egress
can be turned on to a medium level such that the smoke is not blinding
and your family knows how to get out quickly. Security Mode may also be
activated manually from a keypad. When Security Mode is deactivated, the
lighting returns to the original levels set before Security Mode was activated.
HomeWorks constantly monitors and records the state of all lighting in
a home. When Vacation Mode is activated, the system plays back your real-life
lighting events, providing a realistic appearance of activity while the
home is unoccupied. Vacation mode randomization is also an option. Randomization
slightly varies the times at which lighting events occur, thus creating
a more realistic image of an occupied home. The system can be programmed
to record the last day’s, the last week’s, or the last two

HomeWorks Local Lighting Controls and GRAFIK Eye® Preset Local Lighting
Controls remain fully functional even in the unlikely event communication
to the processor is interrupted. Dimming panels also have manual override
capabilities, which can be activated from dedicated switches located anywhere
in the home.
All HomeWorks components are designed with power-failure memory. If power
is interrupted and restored, lights will automatically return to the levels
to which they were set prior to the power outage. HomeWorks system programming
is retained in non-volatile memory and is not affected by loss of power.
THE POWER IS IN THE SOFTWARE
HomeWorks provides the capability to activate events only if specific
conditions are met. For example, program driveway sensors to turn on exterior
lighting only if it is dark. A single “Dining” button could
set different lighting and music for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
HomeWorks can automatically trigger events at specific times of the day
or at times relative to sunrise or sunset. By knowing your location, HomeWorks
knows when the daily sunrise/senset times occur. HomeWorks even adjusts
for seasonal changes in daylight savings time. Program multiple schedules
allowing for different timeclock events on weekdays, weekends, holidays,
etc. For example, you may want to turn your landscape lights on 15 minutes
before sunset every night and use the sprinkler system to water the lawn
every other day at sunrise.
HomeWorks Keypads can be customized to meet your changing needs. Each
keypad button may be programmed to activate any of the lights in the system.
Keypad buttons may also be programmed to control audio, video, and other
integrated subsystems. And keypads can be engraved, letting you know for
certain the programming behind the buttons.
NO MORE WALL CLUTTER
The days of having six switches line up on the wall are over. One elegant
HomeWorks keypad can be used to control the lights. And with engraved
buttons, there is no guessing which switch turns on which lights, you
know which lights you are turning on.
HomeWorks offers a variety of control options depending on your wants
and needs. Perhaps you want a subtle dimmer on the wall that does not
detract from the other features of the room. Perhaps you want a keypad
with large, backlit buttons at the entrance to your media room you use
to set up for the movie. Check out the extensive line of HomeWorks controls
to determine which ones are right for you.
With HomeWorks extensive array of colors and finishes, you choose the
look you want for the unique décor of your home. Whether you want
a contrasting metal finish keypad in the bedroom or a more subtle dimming
control on the kitchen backsplash, HomeWorks extensive colors and finishes
allow you to create the look you want.
HomeWorks keypads and local lighting controls complement each other with
matching colors, styles, and finishes. After all, the receptacle on the
backsplash of your kitchen should match the color of the dimmer. A full
range of wallplates, receptacles, telephone jacks, and cable jacks are
available to match system controls. Architectural-style faceplates can
even be customized to match a home’s paint, wallcoverings, or decor.
HomeWorks seeTouch and Signature Series keypads are backlit so that the
button labels are easily read in a dark room. No need to turn the lights
on to read the buttons that are supposed to turn the lights on.
SHADE INTEGRATION WITH SIVOIA QED
HomeWorks is the only lighting control system able to offer precise integration
with shades. With Sivoia QED shades, you not only can open and close a
shade, you can send it to precise levels. As you read the morning paper
you raise the shades just a crack with the tabletop keypad next to your
chair, allowing just enough natural light to read comfortably.
WITH OTHER EQUIPMENT
HomeWorks® has been designed to integrate with audio, video, and other
subsystems in a home. A typical application includes control of an audio
system from buttons on a HomeWorks keypad. Interface the system with other
equipment using contact closure inputs and outputs, infrared inputs, and
RS-232 serial communication.
The telephone interface allows access and control of up to ten different
functions or events from any touchtone phone. The telephone interface
guides the homeowner through each step with customized voice messages
and provides positive verbal response when a function or event has been
activated. Utilize this capability from telephones within the house or
across the world.
RETROFIT WITH EASE
Whether your home is existing or under construction, you can have all
the power and convenience of HomeWorks. Add lighting control to existing
homes with HomeWorks RF devices. Existing switches are replaced with RF
dimmers, RF switches, and RF keypads using existing line-voltage wiring.
RF lamp dimmers simply plug into receptacles to integrate table and floor
lamps into the system.
Tabletop Controls – Dimmers and Keypads
HomeWorks RF tabletop keypads and RF lamp dimmers offer great flexibility
for the placement of controls. Locations such as bedside, countertops,
and end tables are ideal for these controls.
CAR VISOR CONTROLS
The HomeWorks car visor transmitter clips on to a car’s
sun visor providing complete control of the system from the convenience
of the car. Any car equipped with is compatible as well.
