Habitech Launches Stream 'Flow 7' High Resolution Touch Panel (4/11/2013)
Versatile Android-powered high quality 7” touch screen designed to enhance a wide range of systems in new and legacy installations…
Habitech, a value-added distributor of home entertainment and automation products has announced the availability of the Stream ‘Flow 7’ high resolution touch panel for use with a wide range of control and audio products, including Control4, Crestron, AMX, Bitwise, RTi, Nuvo, Sonos etc.
Powered by Android and equipped with a 1280x800 HD display, the innovative and versatile ‘Flow 7’ touch screen is designed to be installed easily in both retrofit and new installations. It mounts in a wall box as small as UK single/25mm deep, but also has fitting options for double-gang UK and Double-J US wall boxes, allowing the immediate ‘drop-in’ upgrade of any legacy system using existing wall hardware and connections.
For added flexibility, its innovative mounting design allows for the panel to be offset from the back-box horizontally or vertically to avoid door frames, switches etc. For example, if the existing back-box is located next to a light switch, the panel can slide to align perfectly with the switch.
Wherever situated, Flow 7’s high build quality will always complement the room. Its 1280x800 HD display is manufactured from scratch-resistant Corning® glass and encased in a beautiful solid aluminium bezel, available in a choice of satin or dark aluminium finishes.
Flow7 runs Android 4.3 with a quadcore processor and 16GB RAM. There’s an integral front-facing camera together with Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11b/g/n for use with control system applications. The panel is powered by PoE, so a single existing CAT5/6 cable can be used in conjunction with a PoE switch or injector which converts this to a high current safety protected 5V 2.1A charge system. In the event of a power failure Flow7 reverts to battery operation.
With the Wake Lock - Power Management App installed, the panel can maintain power and continuously run applications for media devices around the home.
Commenting Habitech Technical Manager Justin Martin-Lawrence said “With the most powerful drop-in simplicity, Flow7 will introduce the latest touch control features and convenience to new installs and system upgrades, delivering great functionality and quality to any home entertainment system.”
