Workstation Control - zencontrol

Workstation control
Individual workstation control is gaining traction for employers looking to increase employee comfort. zencontrol personal USB interface is the perfect accessory to give employees individual room control without commissioning.

Integration of Lighting Control - zencontrol

zencontrol makes integration easy with several supported methods: BACnet over IP (client and server), RS232 connections, Modbus over IP, Volt free I/O (low level triggers), KNX over IP (coming 2018) and Cloud based API.

Scene Lighting Control - zencontrol

Boardrooms, meeting spaces and other presentation areas commonly require the ability to change the lighting of individual or groups of luminaires to fit the requirements of the occupants. zencontrol supports easily configurable scenes and accessories.

Daylight Harvesting of Lighting - zencontrol

Daylight harvesting
Users requiring maximum energy savings can use natural light to offset artificial light usage. zencontrol employs several products and techniques which aid in reducing the setup time and increase the daylight linking accuracy.

Event based Logic Lighting Control - zencontrol

Event based logic
Changing how a room or area performs based on event logic, such a room partition opening or closing, is easy with zencontrol’s event based logic. Event based logic allows dynamic changes to the actions performed from switch and sensor activity, directly from events triggered through other logic input devices. This means when dividers are open, switches and sensors control all lights and when closed, only those in their relevant area.

Circadian rhythm
Light colour and intensity play important roles in human physiology. The ability to adjust the colour and intensity of light can be used to trigger these hormones and positively affect building occupants. zencontrol provides the ability to easily control light prescriptions in an environment to increase productivity and improve well being.

Debugging Lighting Control Systems - zencontrol

Finding issues on site can be a cumbersome and time consuming task for any integrator. Use the zencontrol Cloud to monitor realtime, detailed traffic on multiple application controllers simultaneously from any location. Our debugging tools allow you to diagnose, action a response and get back to work quickly.

Time Based Controls - zencontrol

Time based controls / profiles
Changing the behaviour of lighting during different periods of the day is simple and easy with zencontrol. The building can be set up to change profiles at various times to meet the requirements of after hours, normal hours and holidays. Additionally, an installer can schedule tasks to occur based on the time or proximity to sunrise or sunset.

Occupancy Based Lighting Control

Occupancy based control
zencontrol is designed for sensors, which allows simple, easy, and automatic setup of presence and absence control in basic installations. zencontrol supports up to 63 sensors per DALI line and is ready for smart DALI luminaries. With per fitting occupancy control and light level compensation, energy savings and comfort can be easily increased.


A modern building requires many building services to be connected.

zencontrol makes integration easy with several supported methods:

  • BACnet over IP (client and server)
  • RS232 connections
  • Modbus over IP
  • Volt free I/O (low level triggers)
  • KNX over IP (coming 2018)
  • Cloud based API

Additionally, as BACnet, Modbus and KNX support is at the application controller level, no additional controller between the lighting control system and BMS is required. This reduces cost, increases speed and removes the risk of a single point failure.
