Power requirement: 12VDC. The device may be installed in a standard electrical box with 120VAC, when used in conjunction with an Evolve provided “blue-cube” transformer.
The Evolve LCD does not control a circuit directly. Instead, it communicates wirelessly via RF to Evolve lighting controls, thermostats, shade and drape controllers, and more.
Text display, LCD backlight, and button brightness are all configurable. Product functionality may be extensively customized at the time of initial system programming, including lighting control (both switching and dimming of circuits), temperature display and control, and control over motorized shades and draperies. Lighting and motorized scene control may be achieved in two commonly used options:
- Single touch scene control - Buttons are given one function, to immediately set the selected scene
- Dual touch “toggle” control - Buttons are given two functions:
- The first tap sets the selected scene
- The second tap sends an OFF or CLOSE command to each device that was included in its originally selected scene. This feature is well suited for “toggling” ON and OFF a set of specified lighting circuits.
If using the RGB Screen (Red/Green/Blue) version of the Evolve LCD, backlight color may also be configured to a predetermined setting.
