URC Adds iTunes Integration
Universal Remote Control this week announced that its Network Series controllers can now integrate iTunes with other home control functions. Users can now control the iTunes library from any computer or Apple TV unit in their home through their URC controllers.
The new functionality is available on MX-6000 Color Touch Screen, MX-5000 Wand Touch Screen Remote and KP-4000 In-Wall Touch Screen. URC also offers 16 applications that are available to custom installers.
"Yes, we know, ‘There’s an app for that,’” Eric Johnson, URC’s vice president of technology, said as part of thea nnouncement. “We live in that world, too. But there's no ‘app’ that does everything our Network Series controllers can do. We can dim the lights, turn off the TV, peek in the nursery via the IP camera, and much more, with just a couple button presses and without delay. And now, we can get you to your iTunes playlist faster."
