Today, Vantage Controls has set an unprecidented standard for the
home theatre of the new millennium. TheatrePoint integrates the
complete home theater into every home automation system.
THEATRE POINT FRONT
1- LCD Screen
TheatrePoint has a small screen and buttons on its face. They are
used to test and monitor IR output, relay closure and general system
The buttons can also be used for the setup of the current sensing
2 - IR Receiver
With a built-in IR receiver, TheatrePoint can receive IR codes from
a Vantage Remote. This allows instant control of any load or device
connected to the Vantage System, including 3rd party devices.
3 - IR Channel LED Feedback
This sleek display allows the user to receive a visual confirmation
when an IR signal is sent. Each of the 12 IR parts on the back of
the unit has a corresponding LED on the front which lights up to
indicate signal transmissions.
4 - RS-232 LED feedback
With integration, it is imperative for the installer to always know
when RS-232 strings are sent or received. This front display LED
eliminates the guesswork by lighting up when strings come in or
5 - Station Bus Connection
TheatrePoint offers immediate access to the Vantage system. Behind
the logo is a quick connection to the simple, yet powerful, two-wire
Vantage station bus. This connection provides the convenience of
in-room modifications to system programming.
6 - Surge Protection
The “reset” switch allows the user to re-initiate TheatrePoint
when a surge has tripped the built-in circuit. This ensures the
integrity and protection of TheatrePoint and all devices plugged
THEATRE POINT BACK
1- Standard 120V Plug
TheatrePoint was designed to compliment the home theater by using
standard connections and easily fitting in most equipment racks.
Like other equipment, it draws its power from a standard 120V AC
wall receptacle (also available with 240V AC). No additional wiring
2 - Current Sensors
Power state tracking is an important part of synchronizing equipment
with the control system. TheatrePoint (101) features six current
sensing plugs to monitor the on/off state of each attached component.
With this feature, turning on a stereo receiver could have a programmed
response to initiate additional actions on the Vantage system.
3 - Contact Inputs
Contact inputs on the TheatrePoint monitor the state of sensors
and closures. With six contact inputs on the 101 model and twelve
on the 201, TheatrePoint integrates motion sensors, door sensors,
light sensors and can be used in conjunction with SmartLink probes
to monitor the on/off state of nearly any device.
4 - Low Voltage Relays
TheatrePoint provides full scene control with six low voltage relays.
These send commands to close the blinds, lower the projector and
complete any other action on devices that need an on/off command
5 - Infrared Emitters
TheatrePoint can control 12 different A/V devices, each with it’s
own unique IR emitter channel. Virtually any device can be controlled
with a remote control, can be controlled by Vantage when connected
to an IR emitter port
6 - RS-232 Ports
Full -featured two-way communication is easily facilitated with
TheatrePoint through two RS-232 ports. Complex commands are sent
and received to create the perfect mood for the home theater.
7 – Station Bus
Communication on the Vantage system is done by a simple non-polarized
2-wire bus. Full-featured automation is achieved through the most
installer-friendly available today. Programming changes can be made
through the station bus connection on either the front or back of
TheatrePoint. The station bus can be connected to a Vantage C-Box
or Master Controller for Wired or wireless control.
