Buttons Support

CART_0050_AP5 Buttons BLK_45 On Base_H.jpg


The LaunchPort with Buttons System consists of a Station, Sleeve and Sleeve Buttons which are the top portion of a Sleeve.  Sleeve Buttons communicate independent of iPad to various network bridges.  This independence is due to Sleeve Buttons containing their own CR2032 battery, lasting up to 10 years under normal use.  

Sleeve Buttons transmit radio frequencies of either 434 MHz (North America) or 868 MHz (UK and Europe).  Sleeve Buttons utilize the Clear Connect protocol, which is managed by Lutron Electronics.  Sleeve Buttons communicate to Lutron Network Bridge like the HomeWorks Repeater, HomeWorks QSM, RadioRA 2 Main Repeater, and the Caséta Smart Bridge Pro.  These Network Bridges convert Clear Connect Radio Frequency to IP commands that can be monitored by various control systems.  Lutron Network Bridges, corresponding processors (if required) are then integrated with Control System processors via existing software drivers.  

To learn more about integration with Lutron network devices, please read the Lutron iPort Integration Guide below.

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.
