URC Announces Sound all Around with new Total Control® and Bose SoundTouch® Wireless Music Systems Compatibility

New control module provides integration with Bose SoundTouch systems; free for Authorized URC dealers


Quote
“Our dealers seek the finest entertainment control experiences and latest options for multi-room music from brands their clients trust. The Bose® SoundTouch® family of products is among the most comprehensive in the industry, and home automation through URC gives customers another simple way to access and enjoy Bose audio throughout their home.”

“URC means music lovers get choice. URC dealers can now offer whole-house music from Bose in addition to other world-leading music brands, including HEOS, Sonos®, Fusion, Autonomic, CasaTunes®, our own SNP-2 and Deezer (for international markets) with Total Control integration capabilities.”

“We see this as an important breakthrough for our industry and greater choice for consumers seeking sophisticated smart home solutions. URC is pleased to expand our lineup of two-way, music modules with the addition of Bose.”

Summary
New driver from URC provides effortless, two-way control of Bose® SoundTouch® wireless music systems for a worry-free connection, and is available free to all URC Authorized dealers by software consulting company Janus Technology at www.janustechnology.co.uk.

With Total Control and Bose SoundTouch systems, homeowners can now easily choose new music from any of URC’s Total Control interfaces including best-of-breed remotes, keypads, touchscreens and mobile apps.

Bose SoundTouch systems are the easiest, most versatile home wireless music systems available. There’s an entire family of wireless multi-room speakers and sound systems, from one-piece music systems to amplifiers to home theater systems. There’s a great solution for almost any room in the home, whether custom installed

or plug-and-play. They have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built right in for the best of both worlds, perfect for instant music and multi-room listening.

Discrete preset selection lets the homeowner select music from the URC interface, as well as control volume level, repeat and shuffle status. Comprehensive metadata feedback to the URC interface makes for a rich, compelling user experience, while offering instant synchronization with other applications.

The software module from Janus provides complete integration of multi-room grouping functionality with Bose SoundTouch® systems, allowing players to be easily grouped together and controlled simultaneously. An automatic discovery mechanism makes installation a breeze, and an interface designed to mimic the intuitive Bose SoundTouch app provides a familiar experience for homeowners.

Additional Information
A single driver file handles all communications via Ethernet. The following main features are supported:

  • Device discovery
  • Discrete preset selection
  • Multi-room grouping functionality
  • Transport & volume control
  • Comprehensive metadata feedback

Dealers can obtain download information from www.janustechnology.co.uk and can gain access to documentation and tips from URC, Bose and Janus websites.
