Screen Innovations Streamlines and Simplifies Programming of SI Motorized Shades and Screens with New Brand-Agnostic IP Control Gateway
“We believe all products should work together and consumers should have choices. The vision of Troy is to open up all integration abilities across all brands and all communication topologies, allowing our integrators to be nimble in any situation,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson. “Troy becomes the ONE simple-to-use interface to program all wired and wireless devices and utilizes the latest cryptographic protocols to provide military-grade encryption for security.”
Screen Innovations Debuts Extremely Robust, Ultra-Affordable Power Supply Ideally Suited for its Low-Voltage 3.0 Zigbee Shade Motors
“Kratos is an exceptionally well-designed and -engineered product for integrators looking to take advantage of the many benefits of Zigbee 3.0 low-voltage shading motors currently available in our Nano indoor shading cassettes,” says SI CTO Michael Braithwaite. “The motors run up to 6 decibels quieter than comparably sized 485 motors, are easily integrated with other Zigbee-based devices, and now that we have Kratos, lithium batteries, which take up a lot of space, can be removed from the shading cassette, resulting in an even smaller footprint that’s ideal for installation on narrow windows.”
