EAGAN, MN – Capitol, the leading consumer electronics distribution source for residential systems and light commercial contractors as well as CE dealers, e-tailers and premium incentive resellers, is expanding its selection of URC® products with the addition of the recently introduced MX HomePro, a new cloud-based smart home control system that debuted last month at CEDIA Expo.
The MX HomePro is the third URC series to be offered through Capitol, which also offers URC’s Complete Control and Total Control products.
“URC resonates with custom pros because their products are among the most well-designed in any category, let alone one that emphasizes ergonomics as much as it does technology,” said Curt Hayes, President and CFO, Capitol. “MX HomePro extends the benefits of URC products to a consumer market that will appreciate the way it offers one-touch control of connected home products, from lighting and HVAC to security cameras and Z-Wave® products.”
MX HomePro, which includes an ergonomic URC remote control, compact Smart Hub, and the MX HomePro mobile app, delivers on-the-go control via smartphone and tablet. Simple programming makes it easy to get started quickly, and the MC HomePro Editor helps dealers maintain customers’ systems from any location with internet access. The cloud-based Editor software features convenient programming via PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet.
Added Hayes: “URC is one of my favorite success stories in the custom channel. [URC Founder and CEO] Chang K. Park and his remarkable company continue to excel in a competitive market. MX HomePro is a good example of how URC sets new standards with every product rollout.”
