What is Clipsal C-Bus?
  • Clipsal C-Bus is a family of home automation products.
    C-Bus home automation products communicate with each other on a dedicated network.
    C-Bus refers to the network, its communications protocol, and the system of components on the network.
    C-Bus is sometimes incorrectly referred to as CBus.

  • What does "C-Bus" stand for?
    The "C" in C-Bus stands for Clipsal, because Clipsal developed and manufactures C-Bus.
    Clipsal C-Bus is a "Bus" because its components are connected in parallel to the C-Bus network without any network hub. Clipsal C-Bus supports staring and looping of connections for easy installation and expansion.

  • Is Clipsal C-Bus common in homes?
    Yes. Clipsal C-Bus is the leading lighting and energy management system in homes and buildings in Australia. The most common reasons for not installing C-Bus include:
    - The home owner does not know what professionally designed and programmed C-Bus can do for them, or;
    - The home owner has not budgeted to include C-Bus throughout their new or renovated home.
    See also How much does home automation cost?

  • Is C-Bus wired or wireless?
    Both wired and wireless C-Bus components are available.
    There is a larger range of wired C-Bus products than wireless C-Bus products.
    When the installation of wiring is possible, you should use wired C-Bus home automation components.
    Wireless C-Bus devices are ideal when access for wiring is not available:
    - Most wireless C-Bus components still require standard 240V wiring to power devices; it is the C-Bus communication between them that is wireless.
    - Only the battery-operated Saturn Style wireless switches and the C-Bus wireless RF remote control are completely wireless.

  • What is C-Bus Multi-room audio?
    C-Bus Multiroom is a recent addition to Clipsal C-Bus home automation that provides inexpensive multi-room audio and can be easily controlled using the beautiful C-Bus eDLT wall switches with built-in OLED display.

  • What does Clipsal C-Bus exclude?
    While an extensive range of C-Bus devices are available, a professional home automation installation will also include many non-C-Bus components. For example, structured pre-wiring, phone or video-intercom systems, security systems, dedicated pool controllers, high end home theatre and multi-room audio.

  • Can C-Bus control third party non-C-Bus equipment?
    Yes. In the hands or your Clever Home automation Engineer C-Bus may be interfaced with and/or control a wide range of third party non-C-Bus equipment.
