Installation of the keypads is simple. The keypads fit in a standard single gang electrical box or low voltage frame. A Cat5 cable (supplied and installed by your installer) with standard RJ45 connectors, connects to the back of the keypad on one end, and to one of the six ports located on the back of the CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub on the other end. The CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub connects to the CasaTunes Music System via a standard USB cable (that is supplied with the hub). Up to six keypads can be attached to each CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hub. If you need more that six keypads, simply add as many CasaTunes USB6 Keypad Hubs as needed.
You assign keypads to rooms using the CasaTunes Setup application. In the case of a large room or listening area you can even assign multiple keypads to one room, providing installers maximum coverage and flexibility.
The CasaTunes Keypads are available in almond, black, ivory and white. To complete the installation you can use any standard or screwless Decora™ style wall plate cover, such as the Leviton screwless faceplates.
Connection: Standard RJ45 connector on back of keypad.
Cable: Any CAT5, CAT5e, CAT6 or better cable with four twisted pairs. We recommend cable with 24 gauge or larger wire.

Each Keypad uses a separate RS-485 bus in the Hub, eliminating concerns about proper termination. This scheme is highly noise resistant.
