URC has revealed Total Control 2.0 at CEDIA Expo 2017 in San Diego, CA, a premium, personalized solution for home control.
Total Control 2.0 is a comprehensive upgrade to URC's flagship automation and control system. This second-generation system adds a next-generation graphic user interface, new customization features, and quick programming. Also included is an attractive new tabletop touchscreen controller and in-wall touchscreen keypads.
The family of Total Control 2.0 user interfaces can be programmed with an extensive selection of custom backgrounds, room images and icons. Programmers can upload images from the large URC library, the users' personal library, or photographs taken with a smart device or camera.
"URC dealers and homeowners are amazed when they see their Total Control touchscreens and remotes completely personalized with photos of their home, family, vacations and favourite sports teams," says Doug Cole, Senior Vice President and General Manager of URC.
The Total Control system also incorporates a variety of advanced features, such as In-App Launching, Remote User Access, and Offsite Programming. Additionally, Favorite Channels provides homeowners with quick access to their favourite TV programs with a touch of their URC user interface. Users can also preview current program information before they change the channel.
The foundation of Total Control is a family of next -generation user interfaces. This includes a 7" tabletop touchscreen controller (TDC-7100), 5" and 7" in-wall touchscreens (TKP-5600, TKP- 7600), plus premium handheld remotes, keypads and mobile apps. Additionally, Total Control integrates with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for intelligent voice control.
"While control systems can be controlled with a smartphone or tablet, we believe that the dedicated URC tabletop touchscreen controller should be the centrepiece of a whole-house automation system," opines Chang K. Park, founder and CEO of URC.
Total Control offers whole-house automation and control of up to 32 zones of entertainment, audio, lighting, temperature, security and surveillance. It integrates with TV and AV brands, plus smart home products. Total Control includes proprietary digital music streaming and distribution, lighting control, camera and sensor technology.
Accelerator 2.0 software enables dealers to easily configure and customize a Total Control system for their customers. Total Control is sold only to URC Direct Dealers for the custom installation channel.
