The Pharos BPS (Button Panel Station) is a versatile 8-button station with integrated button LEDs that works with any Pharos Controller. The stylish BPS is available in a range of finishes and there are two variants for compatibility with either US or UK back boxes. Install is easy and convenient as the BPS only requires a single Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection.

The function of each button is freely programmable, and each button has a white LED indicator with fully user-controllable brightness and a variety of flash effect options for giving visual feedback. In addition a learning infra-red sensor is included, allowing any standard remote control to be used to trigger button presses.

The BPS is part of the Pharos range of Remote Devices, which allow the fully scalable Pharos system to be tailored to the needs of each individual project. Multiple Pharos Controllers can be used together with up to 200 Remote Devices and will synchronise automatically. The Controllers are programmed using the free Pharos Designer 2 software.
