URC Enters IP Camera Space
URC will unveil 14 products at CEDIA Expo, the latest lineup in its 18-month transition from remote control to whole-house control.
The products includes IP cameras, a new category for URC. Most of the new products will fall under the Total Control umbrella, a designation used by URC to earmark whole-house audio, lighting, climate control and IP-based surveillance products that will be shipping at different stages right after the show.
The new products include what Jon Sienkiewicz, director of marketing, calls the brains of the system: the MRX-10 network controller. It serves as the engine for two-way communications with the Total Control remotes and keypads. New remotes include the MS-1200, with a 2.5-inch touchscreen and two-way Wi-Fi capability, and the MS-780, URC’s first remote to use an OLED graphical user interface.
