Our keypads are specifically designed to work with the CasaTunes line of multi-source multi-zone audio products including the CasaTunes CT-3, CT-8 and the CasaTunes CT-12+ Music System products. The CasaTunes keypads complement using the CasaTunes browser based user interface, providing an alternate way to control your CasaTunes music system.
The keypads are used to control the room's music, including:
Turning the music in the room on or off
Turning the music in all rooms on or off
Changing the volume
Switching between the different sources of music
Selecting Music, playlists and favorites
Selecting Radio Stations
Configuring Balance, Bass, Treble and Loudness settings for the room

Name of the currently selected source.
Smooth scrolling of information including station name, song title, artist name, and album name (if available).

Installation of the keypads is simple. The keypads fit in a standard single gang electrical box or low voltage frame. A Cat5 cable (supplied and installed by your installer) with standard RJ45 connectors, connects to the back of the keypad on one end, and to one of the six ports located on the back of the CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub on the other end. The CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub connects to the CasaTunes Music System via a standard USB cable (that is supplied with the hub). Up to six keypads can be attached to each CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub. If you need more that six keypads, simply add as many CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hubs as needed.
You assign keypads to rooms using the CasaTunes Setup application. In the case of a large room or listening area you can even assign multiple keypads to one room, providing installers maximum coverage and flexibility.
The CasaTunes Keypads are available in almond, black, ivory and white. To complete the installation you can use any standard or screwless Decora™ style wall plate cover, such as the Leviton™ or Lutron™ screwless faceplates.
