New matching accessories include paintable trims, keystone faceplates, and gang faceplates with trims that can combine 2,3, or 4 units to control lights, shades, audio and more.
“These stunningly beautiful keypads provide Crestron residential dealers, as well as interior designers and architects, with incredible flexibility in both control and design,” said Michael Short, Global Residential Marketing Manager at Crestron. “Now, with the complete line of accessories, designers have even more customization options.”
The Horizon line is available in single-gang and up to four keypads can be ganged together.

Top and bottom trim pieces are interchangeable to suit any décor and provide the ultimate in style and elegance.
For enhanced readability under any lighting conditions, every model in the Horizon line includes multi-color backlighting that illuminates the high-quality laser engraved text on the buttons. If desired, when the button is pressed it can glow up to two to three times brighter than the inactive buttons. Moreover, each button can be programmed to glow in any color – it’s completely customizable.
