Our take on the Niles ZR-KE

This Niles MultiZone keypad expander allows you to connect additional keypads in a particular listening space — ideal for large rooms. For example, use it in a long hallway so you can connect a keypad at either end. This way, you'll be able to change songs or adjust the volume without running to the other end of the hall.

Product Research


Overview: The Niles Audio ZR-KE is a keypad expander, allowing you to have up to three keypads installed in any zone of your ZR-6 system (or up to 2 keypads in one zone if you're using the ZR-4 receiver). The keypads and receiver all connect to the ZR-KE via Cat-5 cable, terminated using the T-568 wiring convention.

Connections: The ZR-KE features four RJ-45 jacks, labeled Keypad 1, Keypad 2, Keypad 3, and Cat-5 In. There is also an input for an optional 12-volt power supply (item # 19012VUNIV). Note: Systems with a large number of keypads may require additional power.

Mounting: Two 2-way mounting ears are provided for horizontal or vertical installation. One ZR-KE can be used for each zone.
