URC Adds Two New Controllers



Indianapolis - URC introduced at CEDIA Expo two new two-way control devices for URC Total Control whole-house control systems, as well as a new iPhone/iPad app.

The new TRC-1280 wand remote and TKP-2000 in-wall touchscreen join the existing TRC-780 wand remote and TKP-100 keypad, along with URC's new Total Control iPhone/iPad app. All leverage a home's IP network to send commands and receive two-way data.

"When we say Total Control, we mean it," said Doug Cole, senior VP/GM of URC. "We now offer two wand remotes, an in-wall touch screen and keypad, and full functionality on iPhones and iPads as well. Our Total Control dealers and their customers now can mix and match control devices to provide the best fit for every installation."

The TRC-1280 remote is a Wi-Fi controller with a 2.8-inch color touchscreen that displays two-way metadata for URC and select third-party devices. Its vibrating haptic technology confirms button presses. The TRC-1280 includes a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and charger base.

The TKP-2000 in-wall network 3.5-inch touchscreen is powered by Ethernet (PoE) and installs in a standard two-gang wall box. In addition to its touchscreen, the TKP-2000 features six backlit hard buttons that turn on and off with power.

All Total Control user interfaces must connect to URC's MRX-10 Advanced Network System controller, through which the devices can be programmed off premises via the Internet.

Pricing and availability of the TRC-1280 and TKP-2000 are to be determined, URC said.

URC is in booth 3240.
