First of all, we apologize for the headline of the “clickbait” series – we will not reveal or solve any mysteries and you will not learn of any spiciness when reading the following lines. However, we are convinced that the offer of the new glass controllers should not escape your attention and are really worth seeing.
The new range of glass controllers combines the desired white or black finish, elegant LED backlight and high-end design that fit virtually any modern apartment, office or hotel. However, they differ in the variants where the ROUND shape processing has been added to the traditional SHARP.
“Although it might seem that these are just quotes, the trends and customer requirements change quite often. We have come a long way in 27 years and we have to put new and innovative products on the market every year, “explains Jiří Konečný, owner and founder of ELKO EP, the European market leader in electronic devices and relays. Today, it produces more than 200 types and exports its products to more than 70 countries.
The latest demand from architects, designers and customers has materialized in the new ROUND glass controller range with rounded corners and bevelled shape. Design is not the only change that has been made to the controllers. The construction is also different. The base of the latest generation of GMRS is no longer separated from the design part, but everything is one compact unit. Practically, this means that the installation box is first attached to the mounting frame, and then connected to the device by the power conductor and the whole unit just clicks into the frame, which is fixed in the box on the wall. This construction improves the placement of the product to the wall and eliminates any unevenness in the plaster or wall substrate. Available in pure white and elegant black.
“When we start to change the look, we want the whole product to meet other trends as well. Whether efficiency, environmental footprint or design. That’s why the latest ROUND series buttons also have increased sensitivity for faster system response and reaction. Illumination of individual symbols is realized by a more energy-efficient method. We have set the automatic backlighting of the symbols so that it can react to the ambient lighting in the room and we have connected the communication bus with screwless terminals. In the spirit of the new design, we also redesigned the graphics of the symbols themselves. These are all seeming small details, but together they make a relatively noticeable change for the better, “adds Jiří Konečný, whose company, in addition to classic device relays, also deals with overall intelligent home electrical wiring and smart technology development.
And this is also the direction of the main trend in the field of controllers, which are no longer just light switches, but usually multifunctional enclosures that allow you to control a number of useful functions in your house – in addition to lighting, air conditioning, heating, multimedia or home appliances.
