HC40: Lighting the way for a better user experience

The built-in shake flashlight in the Advanced editions of the HC40 is just one of the ways in which light can make a hand control even more user-friendly. Be illuminated and find out how the things you have never considered about lighting are an important and integral part of making the HC40 family super user-friendly - be it backlighting in buttons, light in the display or other such features.

We all felt the shift with the introduction of the smart phone. Suddenly our need for more functionality could move beyond devices with single features. This shift carried on to other areas of our everyday lives, from remotes that control the light bulbs on your home and your entertainment unit, as well as to our market where consumers expect more of a hand control for adjustable beds.

From our extensive survey, we learned that the consumers want the RIGHT features in a hand control. We believe that we have found the balance with our HC40 TWIST™ Advanced.

Make it easy - Shake it!
When it comes to a hand control with a flashlight function, the flashlight is usually turned on by yet another button. But what if you could eliminate a button? What if you could make the hand control even more clean to look at, and make it even more user-friendly while you are at it? Asking these questions resulted in the shake flashlight you can experience in the Advanced editions of the HC40 hand controls.


Please read the full article on our website to learn which other details we chose to illuminate.
