URC Announces First Total Control Live Webinars

Vital online dealer training events on URCs comprehensive new whole house control system to take place on May 3-4 and May 10-11.


Harrison, N.Y. May 2, 2011 URC, The Pioneer in Control Technology, announced today that the first live educational webinars regarding its much-anticipated new Total Control line of products will take place beginning tomorrow.

Three separate and distinct one-hour webinars on Total Control will be held over the next 10 days, with future dates to be determined. Current and prospective dealers can follow URCs webinar schedule, which also offers classes on the rest of URCs wide product line, at www.universalremote.com/webinars. Reminders about all URC live webinars are also tweeted a day in advance through URCs Twitter account, @URCRemotePatrol.

The new Total Control webinars are as follows. All times listed are in Eastern Daylight Time.

  • Total Control Product Overview (May 3 and May 4 at 8 am and noon each day; May 10 and May 11 at 9 am and 1 pm each day). Much more than a mere description of the products in the Total Control line, this class explores why the Total Control concept is so relevant in todays CI market. The class describes not only what these products are, but how they work and interact with each other. It goes unit by unit through the capabilities of each product, and examines how the products can be used in many common scenarios.

  • Total Control System Applications (May 3 at 10 am and 2 pm; May 10 at 3 pm; May 11 at 11 am). This class examines the many applications that Total Control can enable dealers to provide their clients. It discusses how to create a Total Control system to meet any customers needs, whether simple or complex, and details the design and planning process for specifying a Total Control system. From basic one-room systems to 32 zones of distributed audio to whole house control and automation, this class reveals the full capabilities of the highly scalable and versatile Total Control system.

  • Introducing Accelerator Software for Total Control (May 4 at 10 am and 2 pm; May 10 at 11 am; May 11 at 3 pm). URCs new Accelerator software uses shortcuts and default settings to speed Total Control programming. Accelerator lets dealers speed through the programming process, but also allows them to customize settings to fill specific system requirements. This class shows the Accelerator interface and walks through the process of programming a typical system.
