        ZUMMESH-AVBRIDGE

        AV Bridge – Wireless Control Integration Module

        Interfaces a Zūm™ commercial room lighting system to a local AV control system via RS-232 or USB. Also enables use of Zūm wireless AV keypads.

        The AV Bridge (ZUMMESH-AVBRIDGE) is a wireless control integration module designed for use with Crestron® Battery-Powered Wireless AV Keypads (ZUMMESH-KPAVBATT) and Zūm™ Wireless Battery-Powered Occupancy and Vacancy Sensors (ZUMMESH-PIR-OCCUPANCY-BATT & ZUMMESH-PIR-VACANCY-BATT). It enables simple control of AV and other functions by connecting the keypads and sensors to a control system or computer, or Crestron AirMedia® Presentation System device (AM-300 & AM-200). A simple, brand-agnostic command set allows for integration with both Crestron and third-party systems via RS-232 or USB.[1] The AV Bridge pairs wirelessly with up to eight keypads and eight sensors in a room without requiring a separate wireless gateway.[2]

        The AV Bridge also enables integration between a complete Zūm commercial lighting system and an AV control system within the same room, communicating wirelessly with each Zūm device in the room via the Zūm Mesh wireless network.[2] Integrating the lighting and AV systems enables control of the lights from any touch screen, keypad, handheld remote, or mobile device app tied to the control system. It also enables automation of the lights using any occupancy sensor, daylight sensor, or other device tied to the control system. Conversely, the current state of the Zūm lighting devices (active lighting scene, dimming levels, occupancy status, daylight levels) can report to the control system to integrate and automate the AV and other equipment tied to the control system.

        The Zūm AV Bridge is designed to be mounted to a wall or other flat surface. Care should be taken when positioning the device to avoid interference from nearby RF devices, obstructions, and metal surfaces. The unit can be powered by a regulated 12-24 Volt DC power source or USB power.[3]

         
        Key Features
        • Enables Crestron® Battery-Powered Wireless AV Keypads for all applications
        • Enables use of Zūm™ occupancy and vacancy sensors for non-Zūm applications
        • Connects the keypads and sensors to a control system or computer
        • Interfaces a complete Zūm™ commercial lighting system to a local AV control system
        • Choice of RS-232 or USB interface [1]
        • Simple, brand-agnostic command set
        • Zūm Mesh peer-to-peer wireless technology — no gateway required! [2]
        • Ultra-compact, surface mount design
        • 12-24 Volt DC or USB powered [3]
        1. Use RS-232 for connection to a Crestron control system. Use USB for connection to a Crestron AirMedia® Presentation System device. When connected to a computer via USB, the interface appears as a virtual COM port . Connecting the USB port to any USB host disables the RS-232 port. Custom commissioning is required when integrating with a control system. Custom software is required when integrating with a computer.
        2. The ZUMMESH-AVBRIDGE uses “Zūm Mesh” wireless technology to connect and communicate with the keypads, sensors, and lighting devices. Zūm Mesh is a peer-to-peer wireless mesh network designed to operate within a single room. The ZUMMESH-AVBRIDGE and all AC-powered Zūm Mesh devices function as routing nodes, which effectively extend the range of the wireless network within the room. Battery-powered devices only function as leaf nodes and do not extend range. Networks composed predominantly of battery-powered devices may require additional AC-powered devices, such as the ZUMMESH-JBOX-PSU, to serve as supplemental routing nodes to fill any gaps in coverage. Refer to the “Installation and Setup of Crestron RF Products, Best Practices” guide (Doc #6689) for additional guidelines.
        3. Power supply not included. Connecting the USB port to a USB host disables the RS-232 port.
