Environmental controllers

This section includes systems and devices that can be used to control a range of household appliances and fittings.

Switch compatible systems that can control a range of household appliances and devices using infra-red and/or radio transmissions. Extra switches can be attached, and many have a 'scanning' capability, which makes operation easier if you have limited dexterity.

Output interfaces and sockets are units controlled by an environmental control system to give operation of household fittings and appliances. For example, universal interfaces could allow an environmental control system to control profiling beds or riser recliner chairs; mains sockets could allow an environmental control system to turn a lamp or radio on/off, and a door opening mechanism can allow an environmental control system to open and close a door. These output devices will only work with an environmental control system, many of them will only work with particular models so check compatibility.
