Control Your Environment. Open Your World!
Environmental Control Units (ECU’s), or Electronics Aids for Daily Living (EADL’s) as they are sometimes called, are voice
and/or switch operated devices enabling persons with physical or neuromuscular disabilities to control their environment and
open their world. ECU’s provide increased independence in a home, hospital or rehabilitation facility setting, allowing the
user to control and operate everyday items easily and effectively. ECU’s increase quality of life and help return (or maintain)
independent living.
What does an ECU do?
Environmental Controls Units offer a wide and diverse range of controls for many products and devices. The number of devices
and items controlled by the ECU are based on the complexity of the chosen technology. ECU’s can:
• Turn on lights and appliances
• Operate Remote Controlled devices such as TV
• Control a telephone
• Activate Electric Bed functions
• Operate door openers
• And many others daily living products
How is an ECU controlled?
Environmental Control Units are controlled and accessed by voice, by switch, or by a combination of both. The various
methods of switch control are based on the abilities of the end user and can be modified and custom mounted to match the
individual’s needs. A few switch types include: breath switches (commonly called Sip and Puff), pressure switches, single
and dual switches, and sensor (IR Beam) switches. Voice control is primarily dependent upon consistency of voice.
How does the ECU control electrical and Infrared (IR) devices?
Environmental Control Units operate electrical items by using X-10 and/or Insteon communication technology that utilizes the
existing wiring in a home or hospital to send control signals to a particular device turning its power on or off.
Infrared (IR) control of common items such as TV, Satellite, DVD, etc is operated by the ECU transmitting the same IR signals
as the remote control that came with the particular device. IR control signals can either be “learned” by the ECU or pre-programmed.

7. What brand type of electric bed does the customer have?
8. Does the phone need to be portable?
9. Will the customer need to have a portable ECU for their W/C?
10.Will the customer be making any new major purchases? (New electric bed, TV, etc.)
11.What is the funding situation? (Capped money, unlimited budget, etc.)
12.Are there any other “goals” the customer is looking to achieve with their ECU?

ECU ACCESSORIES
As a leader in innovative advances for home control services, AbleNet/Tash has the experience and expertise to tackle just about any
situation. From installations to training, we make every effort to accommodate your needs.
ECU Accessories
X-10 Components
X-10 communicates between transmitters and receivers by
sending and receiving signals over the existing electrical
wiring in your home. The Mini Relax with X-10 or the Relax
II send radio frequency signals to the X-10 Transceiver.
The X-10 Transceiver then sends commands to the X-10
modules throughout your home. A separate X-10 module is
required for each appliance you want to control.

Benefits of Infrared and the AbleNet/Tash Transmitters
•
An infrared device is anything that you currently control with a hand held Infrared
remote control.
An Infrared system allows you to remotely control multiple infrared controlled devices in
your environment.
The AbleNet/Tash transmitters are quickly “trained” utilizing the individual’s current
remote for their infrared controlled devices.
Scanning feature enables individuals to simplify multiple functions (such as turning on
a device, changing the channels, turning the volume up or down) with a single switch.
Adjustable scanning speed enables the transmitter to be personalized for the user’s own
reaction time and level of mobility.
Transmitters are light and therefore easily mounted to a wheelchair, bed or tabletop.
A bright red and or green scanning light and auditory beep enables individuals to clearly
see and hear the current command.
Depending on the individuals needs, the user can utilize the infrared coupled with the
X-10 technology.
