Scolmore’s Click Smart control system halves the installation cost for trade association

When Penicuik-based SELECT, the Scottish trade association for electrical contractors in Scotland, needed to update its 10-year-old building management system, it was facing a substantial outlay. But Scolmore came to the rescue with its Click Smart RF Wireless Control System.

Coming in at around 50% less than SELECT’s original budget, Scolmore’s Click Smart RF Wireless Control System was installed with little disruption to the original electrical system, providing an adaptable means to control lighting.

The Click Smart home automation system suits refurbishment and new build projects and can be used to update an existing wiring system to provide added security, energy saving, comfort and control.

It offers simple and flexible installation and easy programming, with its unique one touch centralised control panel allowing lighting, shutters, blinds, gates, latches and garage doors to be set and adjusted.

The RF system comprises wireless transmitters, receivers and combined units. No cables or wall cutting is required as the receivers can be installed behind light fittings or into installation boxes and the transmitters are powered by battery.

All lighting in the training centre, boardroom, conference rooms, canteen, rest rooms and reception area at SELECT is now controlled using JA-83P PIR sensors, switching via a RFSA-66M 6-channel multifunction switch receiver in the plant room.

Signal has been boosted using RFRP-20/B signal repeaters around the site. The RF Touch control panel is mounted on the wall in reception to give a general overview and to act as a central control point for the system.

Installer, James McCartan of John Noble Electrical Contractors Ltd, said: “The management team at SELECT were faced with a potentially significant expense to replace the original smart system – installed more than 10 years ago – with an updated version, so to be able to deliver a solution that came in at 50% under the planned budget was a great result all round.”

John McGhee, SELECT Head of Resources, said: “The new system has saved us money on the initial significant installation cost, and in addition we will also benefit from ongoing savings with a more cost- and energy-efficient system.”
