Artistic Licence presents moody at Smart Buildings 2015

Lighting controls expert, Artistic Licence, will be showing off moody, its new programmable LED controller, at the Smart Buildings show at NEC, Birmingham. The show is part of UK Construction Week, the only construction event in the UK dedicated to commercial and residential integrated building technology. 

Artistic Licence, a well-known name in the architectural and entertainment lighting sectors, is using the show to promote moody – a product with wide-market appeal that was very recently launched at the 100% Design show in London. 

moody is a wall controller and programmable scene-setter for LED. It has a simple rotary dial, just like a conventional dimmer, except that it is lit up by a colour LED at the centre. This is not just for show – the LED indicates the colour and intensity of zones of light that can be programmed and controlled by moody. 

The USP of the product is its ability to create sophisticated effects (such as colour fades in multiple zones of light) using the simplest of interfaces – a button that can only be pushed or rotated.

Artistic Licence CEO, Wayne Howell, comments: “The affordability of the control units needed to achieve sophisticated LED effects has not generally kept pace with the fixtures. moody corrects this imbalance, packing in all the functionality of more complex systems at a fraction of the price. Also, many of our customers have told us they don’t want a smartphone app or tablet interface – they just want to be able to push a button on the wall.”

moody is available in a number of variants, all of which feature the illuminated control wheel for colour or intensity, and simple click and rotate programming. 

Selection of the appropriate model enables the following aspects of control:

  • Set the intensity of 1, 6 or 16 channels of white light
  • Set the colour of 1, 3 or 10 zones of RGB or RGBW
  • Programme dynamic effects for 1, 3 or 10 colour zones
  • moody provides DMX512 and DALI outputs for use with a separate dimmer
  • moody cv provides a built-in constant voltage dimmer for stand-alone operation
  • All variants use human-safe, low voltage DC, so no electrician needed
