New Products That Will Bring Uniqueness and Quality to Your Next Project
Douglas Lighting Controls®, a member of the Panasonic family of companies, has paired its Conference Room Controls app with its Bluetooth® Wireless device systems. Designed for conference room and boardroom applications, the new iPad control console pairs seamlessly with the company’s Bluetooth Wireless eco-system of devices to provide a modern, large format, touch-screen interface for control functionality. The Conference Room Control app can support up to eight zones with a maximum of eight presets, allowing users to create preset scenes such as Meeting, Presentation, and Video to quickly set the desired light levels with one tap on the screen. “Modern boardrooms want to showcase the latest technology as this is where their senior executives and best customers will meet,” notes Audey Korpus, Senior Product Manager. The control console app operates on an Apple iPad to set and adjust lights. With mounting hardware for wall or tabletop applications, the app offers a solution designed to meet users’ specific room requirements. The wall mount can be used in place of wall station switches, or a table-mounted control solution can be used to place controls directly on the boardroom table or a convenient side table.

5/LIGHTING + AIR MOVEMENT
The new 52-inch Costello Chandel-Air features a hand-hammered steel band in a Metallic Bronze finish and boasts 8 Ivory faux candlelights for ambient illumination as well as 8 downlights for functional task lighting.

In summer, the fan pushes downward to keep the space cool and comfortable; in winter, the fan blades reverse to pull room air up towards the ceiling and force warm air down to create warmth. Fixture designs, metal finishes, and sizes can be customized to each client’s requirements. The fixture is UL- and cUL-listed for dry and damp locations and handcrafted in the manufacturer’s 180,000-sq.-ft. facility in Yorkville, New York.
