8 Button Programmable IP, IR, RS-232 Wall Plate Control Keypad with PoE for KDPlug & Present™, Compass Control® Pro, and Third-Party Systems via Open API - COMING SOON!

Key Digital® KD-WP8-2 is an eight-button control keypad that fits into a single-gang wall box and is PoE powered. KD-WP8-2 is easily programmed via web GUI to send commands over the network to IP controlled devices directly or RS-232 and IR devices via the built-in control port. KD-WP8-2 may also be integrated with Key Digital Master Controllers to control additional IR, RS-232 and voltage relay devices. Button events may be configured on the press, release, toggle, or press & hold action as desired. Along with selectable blue or red backlighting, KD-WP8-2 includes multiple transparent icon sheets that are simply inserted beneath detachable transparent button caps for a modern and professional appearance. The keypad supports key combo lock & unlock and virtual keypad via password protected web UI, Key Digital Management PC Software, and KD-App. Completed project files may be exported and imported for valuable programming time reduction and straightforward rollout of multiple keypads in cookie-cutter installations. KD-WP8-2’s simplistic open API makes for easy two-way integration with professional control systems and Key Digital’s Compass Control® Pro.
