More Details

Cameo LogoThe Cameo® Standard Mount Keypad (C2N-CBD-P) from Crestron® presents a fresh, innovative concept in keypad design, featuring a highly configurable one-gang wall mount form factor that is at once inviting to the touch and appealing to the eye. The C2N-CBD-P easily installs alongside other low-voltage in-wall devices to deliver an advanced custom keypad control solution as part of a complete Crestron control system.

Customizable Buttons
Exquisitely simple yet highly customizable, a single Cameo Keypad can be configured easily by the installer to provide from two to eight buttons. Each keypad is actually furnished with an assortment of button caps in four different sizes to support a variety of physical layouts. Button caps may also be ordered with custom backlit laser engraving to clearly designate each button's function.

Through programming, each button can be configured to use “button events,” affording up to three separate functions per button by tapping, double-tapping, or pressing and holding the button. “Shift key” functionality, in which the user presses and holds one button while simultaneously tapping another, provides further customization for this versatile keypad.

Auto-dimming Backlight
High-quality backlit laser engraving provides customizable button text that's easy to read under any lighting condition. A built-in light sensor controls the backlight intensity automatically to achieve crisp, legible text in both darkened and fully lit rooms.

Enhanced LED Feedback
Six pinhead-sized white LEDs afford fully customizable feedback to show the status of each button. Ten blink patterns are built in, enabling blinking LED feedback with simplified programming and reduced traffic on the Cresnet® network. Onboard bar graph logic allows the feedback LEDs to function as a 6-segment bar graph display, providing clear level indication while adjusting lighting and audio settings. Auto-dimming LED intensity ensures optimal visibility under varying lighting conditions.

Ambient Light Sensor
In addition to controlling the backlight and LED intensity, the built-in light sensor can also be utilized by the control system to support basic daylight harvesting and other programmatic functions.

Control Ports
Dual digital/analog input ports onboard the C2N-CBD-P provide a local interface for a range of devices including the Crestron GLS Series Occupancy Sensors and Photosensors or any device providing a contact closure, DC logic, or 0-10 Volts DC analog voltage. Using the control ports, it's possible to add monitoring of room occupancy, ambient light level, door closures, and other conditions without having to home run extra wiring to the central equipment location.

The Cresnet bus is the communications backbone for many Crestron keypads, lighting controllers, shade motors, sensors, and other devices. Cresnet is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides bidirectional communication and 24VDC power for Cresnet devices. Cresnet supports up to 252 keypads and other devices.

Standard Wall Mount
Cameo Standard Mount Keypads are designed for installation in a standard electrical wall box, making them perfect for installation in a multi-gang box alongside other low-voltage devices. Available in a selection of 12 colors with “smooth” or “textured” finishes, Cameo Keypads match perfectly with popular off-the-shelf decorator-style faceplates.

Ascent® Metal Faceplates
For the ultimate in style and elegance, Crestron offers the Ascent collection of solid metal faceplates (CBD-FP-ASCENT), providing Cameo keypads with a contemporary appearance in a range of luxurious designer finishes.
