    Hi all, I have a home with cbus and an old touchcreen panel. There is controllers in either panel allowing management of the system. I have a new bathroom lights/fans installed (by electrician) and now need to program them - and replace my old touch screen panel.

    Advise if I should get a 5500AC2 or Wiser2 installed? I am reasonably technical but interested in the communities preference.

    Thanks,
    John.

    Hi, the Wiser AC2 is Clipsal best current version (although 3rd party design), but a bitch programming wise imho. If you simply want a touch screen replacement, scheduling and what/if programming consider the Clipsal Smart Logic Wiser2 unit .... Provides excellent screen output via HDMI and any android tablet will operate as a touch screen interface through their app. It is an elegant solution especially since it can POE powered and provides network/wifi connectivity. System will support multiple tablet touchscreens incidentally plus both apple & android phone support. Btw fully supports HTML5 on browsers and will work straight from the box with minimal setup.

    agree with drew if you are a newb then definitely the wiser as its logic engine is simple and uses pascal
    it has a scheduler, scene manager, and native phone apps
