Wall-Mount Keypad: The Niles NKP7 is a 7-button keypad designed to allow simple control of Niles's MRC-6430 multi-room audio control system (190MRC6430, sold separately). The Niles NKP7 keypad delivers a simple interface that enables the end user to select favorite sources, adjust volume and turn off the system.
7-Buttons: This 7-button keypad is simple to use and easy to navigate with its backlit pad. For Niles MRC-6430 users, the keypad provides simple preset access to preferred content on four channels, plus the ability to raise and lower the volume and power down a zone or the system.
Interchangeable Buttons: The keypad features custom interchangeable buttons, one of which is a "rocker"-style action that delivers volume up and down adjustment control while the other five buttons are single action.
Ethernet Port: The NKP7 keypad is fitted with a RJ-45 Ethernet port on its back panel for power and communication with Niles's MRA-644 multi-room audio control system. It will require connection to a PoE, Power Over Ethernet switch or to an Ethernet cable connected to a PoE injector. It cannot be locally powered.
Single Gang Box Mounting: The decor style of the keypad allows it to be placed in multiple gang decora plate applications with lighting and intercom systems. The NKP7 mounts in a single gang box for old or new construction. The keypad will require a mounting depth of at least 1.75"
