The System

What a LaunchPort with Buttons System Looks Like

The LaunchPort with Buttons system consists of 3 parts: a Station, a Sleeve and Sleeve Buttons.  Sleeve Buttons replace the standard top that ships with a Sleeve, adding buttons to the Sleeve.  Sleeve Buttons models exist to match LaunchPort Sleeve models and colors.


Station + Sleeve + Sleeve Buttons = LaunchPort with Buttons System


LaunchPort Sleeve Buttons attach onto a Sleeve, replacing the standard sleeve-top.

Control System Components and Compatibility

Sleeve Buttons communicate via Lutron's Clear Connect one way 434MHz (or 868MHz if in UK / EU) protocol to a variety of Lutron network bridges and repeaters.  The Lutron network bridge converts clear connect button-press commands onto an IP network.  Using Lutron drivers, Sleeve Buttons can be monitored by the control processor of the control system of your choice.  In most cases, the Lutron Caséta Smart Bridge Pro is the only network bridge required to allow Sleeve Buttons to communicate with your control system.  

To see the full and updated list of control system compatibility with Lutron's Smart Bridge Pro, click here.


Sleeve Buttons are set up as a "phantom keypad" in the control system, button presses are monitored and programmed to enact macros or commands in the control system. The extent of LaunchPort Sleeve Buttons functionality is dependent on the capabilities of the control system you are using.  

Note: Some control systems may not provide functionality outside of lighting and shade control, depending on how the Lutron Driver is written.

VoltPort® Technology

iPort's VoltPort technology, onboard every Control Mount, provides the greatest flexibility in how iPads can be powered when installed:

  • Power iPads from power supplies between 12-24V DC: use 16 AWG Wire up to 400 Ft. from power supply using a 24V DC power supply.
  • Power multiple iPads from 1 industrial power supply, typically a 13.8V DC high wattage supply. In an example where a 200W, 13.8V power supply is used, up to 16 iPads in Control Mounts may be powered from one supply.
  • VoltPort electronics provide a green "OK LED" which confirms iPad will be adequately powered.  Great for "bench testing" combinations of wire type, wire distance and power supply.
