Custom installers can now integrate revolutionary whole-house audio system with a variety of subsystems, media servers, lighting controls and more
MIAMI, FLORIDA — January 29, 2007 — Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation, announced today the shipment of the RS232G Bi-directional Gateway to factory-authorized Niles dealers. The RS232G module integrates subsystems, such as Lutron lighting controls and Escient and ReQuest music servers with the award-winning whole-house audio system IntelliControl ICS. Subsystems connected via RS232 are controlled just like any IntelliControl ICS source, with each product’s metadata and source information sent to IntelliControl ICS keypads, touchscreens and two-way wireless iRemote for ease of use and simplified control. Additionally the RS232G allows popular control panel interfaces to operate the IntelliControl ICS system. The RS232G integrates easily via CAT 5 and can be positioned up to 100 yards away from the main system. It retails for $299.95.
“Custom installers can now integrate the IntelliControl ICS system with a variety of subsystems, media servers, lighting controls, and more,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles Audio Corporation. “The RS232G launch reinforces Niles’ vision of being the world’s leading provider of reliable application-specific products that enable professional installers to design and install systems that delight their customers,” Sterns added.
