Rako 08 December 2021 RAKO celebrates 20th year in business at ISE 2022

2022 is a significant year for Rako, Britain’s leading smart lighting controls manufacturer, marking its 20th anniversary in business. The company will begin its celebrations in style with a stand (2N-600) packed full of the latest wired and wireless lighting control innovations at Integrated Systems Europe (FIRA Barcelona, Gran Via, 1-4 February 2022).

“Rako was founded in 2002 and made its debut at ISE in 2005,” comments Peter Broome, Director at Rako. “We have supported the event consistently since then and we’re looking forward to next year’s show as an exciting meeting-point for the whole industry. Our 20th anniversary is an opportunity for Rako to reflect on how far we have come in driving lighting control technology forwards for the benefit of our dealers and their customers. It also gives us the chance to look forward to the future with products that will be shaping lighting control for many years to come.”

Headlining the Rako stand at ISE 2022 will be the company’s Modular WK-MOD and RK-MOD keypads for wired and wireless systems. Capable of accommodating up to 12 push buttons in a variety of lighting, shading and audio control configurations, the Modular range from Rako offers unrivalled customisation and a premium finish to suit varying application requirements. The range features three different button sizes which can be combined in multiple ways to create custom button layouts, perfectly tailored to an installation. All keypads are also fully programmable with Rako’s Rasoft Pro software.

Also on display will be Rako’s feature-rich HUB interface which now offers increased functionality and simplified third party integration with Crestron Home, Elan and Silent Gliss. Visitors will see how the HUB includes improved app control, simplified remote access and enhanced NFC (Near Field Communication) wireless technology.

Another highlight on stand 2N-600 will be the wired and wireless keypads from Rako’s classically elegant EOS range. The attractive, screwless design of Rako’s EOS keypads create a clean, uncluttered aesthetic, with different finishes to suit contemporary or more traditional interiors. Recessed into each plate are six push buttons, offering a reassuring, tactile interface and allowing easy configuration to suit particular client needs.

Rako will also be sharing more insights and practical information on its supply partnership with QMotion UK which makes integrating wireless blind control with Rako lighting control quicker, easier and more efficient.   QMotion FM Roller and Roman blinds can already be natively integrated via the Rako RK-HUB or WK-HUB into Rako wired and wireless lighting control systems, without the need for special drivers or additional interfaces. Now, Rako customers will be able to access QMotion wireless shading solutions via Rako as well as training, sales, technical support and additional window treatment offerings.
