Spotlight On Colorado vNet

Colorado vNet
Loveland, CO

Colorado vNet, acquired last year by Russound, has won several awards for the design and usability of its customizable lighting and control Touchpads and Vibe Touchscreens.

These products provide control over an entire house, including audio, lighting, climate, security, cameras, as well as worldwide weather information.

Colorado vNet provides audio and video servers to distribute digital audio/video streams throughout the home using a standard Ethernet Data Network. These server/players are complemented by the Vibe Color Touchscreen Amplifier, Tuners, Dock for IPod, and Encoders for traditional audio sources.

The Lighting and Control products include dimmers, touchpads, keypads, as well as a remote access bridge, relay I/O, and serial ports for 3rd-party system integration.
