Identifying components in your Living Control system
If you have inherited a Living Control system, or you cannot remember what components you have, this page gives you some information on how to identify the parts of your system.
There are various large boxes that are normally in a central location, often in some kind of rack. Usually they have lots of wires going to them.
Our current range of servers and controllers all have silver fronts.
The rest of our current products look similar to this:
If there is a CD slot in the front then the product is a MusicBox of some kind. The display on the front may say if it is a MusicBox 3, MusicBox 5, or MusicBox NT
If there is no slot in the front panel (as in the picture) this will be one of our current range of controllers.
If it says RB6 followed by a firmware version number it will be a RoomBox 6
If there is no black window and display with just a plain silver front, the unit could be a RoomBox 4 or, if you have a RoomBox NT, it will be a 8-More or 4-more system expander. It might also be a CVX of some kind if you have video switching.
A black box with a display and a single knob is an older MRS or Event controller.
Blue or light grey box
A blue or light grey box is the Living Control 3hree.
Note that wall pads will be the NT variant if used with a RoomBox NT.
Single light switch size
If you have a control pad the same size as a single light switch it will be a DisplayPad of some kind. If it has a central plastic shield and three buttons in a curve it will be a DisplayPad-S of some kind.
If it has three buttons in a straight line it will be an older DisplayPad (Normally with and MRS or Event based system}.
If the pad has a grey plastic membrane front it is an outdoor DisplayPad
Double light switch size
If you have a flat plate with two parts, one of which is like a DisplayPad and the other has two columns of buttons to control your lights, this will be a RakoPad.
If the pad has an all plastic front with touch sensitive buttons it will be a WaterPad. These are usually fitted in bathrooms or outdoors.
