“ILLUSTRIS is a major step forward in Helvar lighting control,” says Nick Van Tromp, Helvar’s Product Manager. “It provides a modern, smart design that makes it the premium choice for contemporary interiors. It also features the same capacitive technology as many smartphones to offer touch-sensitive operation with Bluetooth connectivity to an ILLUSTRIS app which allows remote operation via a smartphone or tablet.”

Named after the Latin word, meaning “bright” or “shining”, ILLUSTRIS can be touch controlled in the space or remotely accessed via the app from anywhere for complete convenience.

ILLUSTRIS provides a versatile solution for applications where a seamless fit within the interior design scheme is a key requirement. The clean, fresh lines and aesthetically attractive finish of ILLUSTRIS are complemented by a choice of different fascia graphic layouts, including a scene control panel, an RGB colour control panel with a colour wheel, and a tuneable white layout, complete with colour temperature and intensity controls and pre-set scenes. Out of box functionality and the ability to edit and store scenes from the ILLUSTRIS panel or from the app makes control DALI Type 8 devices simple, with minimal set-up.

Helvar has designed ILLUSTRIS to fit most UK/DIN/EU back boxes for quick and easy installation.

Be the first to see ILLUSTRIS at Light + Building, where Helvar will be previewing its offering in Hall 4.0 Stand B30 of at Frankfurt am Main on 13-18 March 2016. For more information on the Helvar range, please visit
