AMX Keypads and Button Input Devices

PLK-DMS - Direct Menu Select Keypad

PLK-DMS - Direct Menu Select Keypad AMX Residential LCD KEYPADS mark an end to walls cluttered with switches, control panels, thermostats, and intercoms. Now a single panel can handle all of these functions and more. AMX keypads can be fully customized to meet your individual needs. Use the interactive buttons to directly select functions displayed on the backlit LCD screen, call up other menus, or display lists of CD titles or messages...or a myriad of other tasks. Whether dimming the lights or answering the intercom, AMX keypads provide a simple and elegant way to control your home automation system. The PLK-DMS keypad has a large backlit LCD display and six buttons to allow selection of menu items. In addition, there are Page Up and Page Down buttons and one large programmable button. The PLK-DMS (or Direct Menu Select) keypad has a built-in temperature sensor and a microphone for intercom and telecomm use. The keypad has two RJ-45 connectors for connecting to the AMX Residential network. These two connectors allow you to daisy chain multiple keypads. If the keypad will be used for intercom or telecomm purposes, the keypad must not be daisy chained to any other keypads. There are no other connectors on the keypad. Custom menus can be created with Landmark Designer software, allowing users to quickly and easily access any system function.

SB1/DSB1 - SmartButton Keypad

SB1/DSB1 - SmartButton Keypad Some areas in the home need just a simple touch of automation. That's why AMX created SmartButton Keypads. Available with one or two LED buttons, (see SB2/DSB2 below) they're made to match AMX Residential's SmartDimmer lighting controls and are fully interactive with Landmark system functions, connecting over the AMX Residential control network. Each programmable button can activate a home automation function of your choice, such as raising or dim multiple lighting zones or setting the whole house to a home or away preset mode. Anything you want today, anything tomorrow. The PLK-SB1 is a 1-button keypad, with the same outward appearance as the PLL-SD10 Dimmer and the PLL-SW10 Smart Switch. PLK-SB1 keypads can be ganged together with lighting products and the button can be custom engraved. The PLK-SB1 has two RJ-45 connectors on the back to connect to the AMX Residential bus. The DSB1 keypad is functionally the same as the SB1, but in Decora styling to match any other Decora devices in a home.
