Neets Control - EcHo and EcHo Plus

EcHo and EcHo plus are 8 button control systems and are both very versatile in their use.

Several RS232/LAN ports and I/O's for controlling your A/V installation.

  • Q: The EcHo has three I/O ports. What are they for?
    A: Most people opt to use two I/O ports for controlling the projector screen – one for roll-down and one for roll-up. With the third I/O port, you are able to connect a PIR motion sensor, which is brilliant for designing eco-friendly installations.

    You can make the PIR turn off your installation when no motion is detected and remember to time the system so that it does not turn off too soon.

    What you could also use your I/O for is a keyboard lock, which prevents unwanted handling of the control panel.
  • Q: Can I use my EcHo to control IR devices and how many?
    A: With the Neets Dual IR Emitter PN 307-0286, the TX/IR port can be setup with two IR emitters. In case you need more IR emitters, you will need to go with a SieRRa II, AlFa II or DelTa.
  • Q: Why do both of the IR devices react to the same output command?
    A: They do so because Neets Control System sends out the same command string to both IR emitters, so if you have two similar devices using the same IR codes, they will react simultaneously.
  • Q: Are all the button functions pre-defined?
    A: No, all the buttons are freely configurable with the Neets Configuration Software.
  • Q: Can I use the EcHo with Neets Central Control?
    A: No, you will need to use an EcHo Plus.
  • Q: Is the EcHo expandable?
    A: Yes, you can expand with up to two NEB modules, choose between up to two extra keypads and/or up to two level controls and/or one Port Expansion.

    For further specification, please go to our website and find Neets Expansion Bus in the product page section.
