Middle-of-the-Road A/V Controller
As the mid-range A/V automation controller in BitWise's BC series, the Leviton Bitwise BC2 Automation Controller offers the same processing power as the flagship BC1 controller, while featuring a more compact design with half as many communication ports. Despite the downsize, the BC2 controller delivers powerful automation capabilities for both IP and non-IP devices, making it an ideal rack-mountable solution for custom A/V control in home theaters, conference rooms, bars/restaurants and more.
- Controls an unlimited number of IP devices
- Ports for non-IP devices: 4 IR, 2 RS-232, 2 signal-sensing, 2 relays
- Astronomical clock for time-based event scheduling
- Free customizable Apple and Android control apps
- Sends custom email and/or text notifications
- Designed for rack- or shelf-mounting
The BC2 Automation Controller serves as a hub to manage and control all the connected devices in your home or business, including audio/video equipment, lighting, security, and HVAC. Automated events are configured by the installer using BitWise's free Project Editor Software and internal scripting engine. Furthermore, thanks to the controller's built-in astronomical clock, you can automate events according to time of day, sunrise/sunset, etc. Triggers can also be programmed to send automatic email or text message notifications of certain events.
End-users control the system with an IR remote control and/or the free BitWise mobile app for Apple and Android devices. The app is fully customizable, so you can change the look and functionality to suit any system.
Support for Various Communication Requirements
Like all BC Series controllers, the BC2 supports an unlimited number of IP devices. This model also enables control of non-IP devices via four (4) routable IR ports with adjustable output, two (2) RS-232 ports, two (2) signal-sensing inputs (digital or analog) and two (2) general purpose input/output relays.
In addition to offering a more compact, simplified version of the BC1 controller, the BC2 also features a new IR chip that transmits a wider range of IR signals. This includes a browsable database of both popular and less common IR codes.
Versatile Mounting & System Expansion Options
The BC2 measures less than a half-rack in width, and can be mounted in a standard equipment rack, or shelf-mounted in an equipment cabinet. It is often located right next to the TV. The controller can act independently, or as part of a distributed control system with additional controllers. All controllers in the BC Series are compatible with one another.
