Using Impera Uniform as a keypad for a 3rd party control system

In some cases, you might need to use another control system, but you would still like to keep the look and feel of the Impera keypads. For that reason we have created this article to help you get started using a Uniform as a user interface for a 3rd party control system like Crestron, AMX, Control4, etc. 

In the video below, you can see how easy it is to get started. 



Below, you will see an example interface, but this can of course be fully customized in Project Designer with custom corporate identity and the controls needed for the room. 

On the below image we are also listing the button id numbers that are needed for the protocol below. 


In the attached project, you should edit the IP settings as well as the Interface design to match your project. Once the project has been edited and uploaded to the Impera Uniform, your control system can connect to the Uniform.

Start by making a TCP connection to the Impera control system using port 3000.


Button Press Events

When the keys on the Uniform is pressed and released, the below commands will be sent from the Uniform:

KeyDown(X)<CR>   (X are the button id number of the button)

KeyUp(X)<CR>        (X are the button id number of the button)


Controlling Uniform LED feedback from the control system,

LED control (On/Off/Blink):

Led(X,Y)<CR>               (X are button id number) Y= On, Off or 1Hz


Color control:

Color(X,Y)<CR>            (X are button id number) Y= White, Purple, Turquoise, Yellow, Blue, Red, Green
