URC Total Control TRC-820 affordable interface now shipping

Sleek new handheld remote control hits market

URC’s latest Total Control handheld interface, the sleek, new TRC-820, is now shipping. Programmable using URC’s long-standing Accelerator, the TRC-820 is designed to work with all URC System controllers, including the MRX-20 (with sophisticated onscreen display), MRX-10 and the new trend-setting MRX-8.

Big on value yet small on price, this stunning remote includes extensive capabilities such as graphical control of home automation systems, ability to personalize based on the homeowner and live video on screen from connected cameras for monitoring doors, rooms and even the yard – from anywhere in the house.

The remarkable, affordable TRC-820 appears immediately on the heels of an earlier two-way control bombshell from URC, the MRX-8 Compact System Controller bundled with URC Mobile Apps at a price that set the custom industry on fire. Now both dealers and consumers can enjoy a best-in-class URC remote coupled with the most value-driven, full-featured home automation system on the market.

“We’ve shattered the $1000 price point with a robust entry level system: and award-winning MRX-8 Compact System Controller, unlimited use of iOS and Android apps and this exciting, new TRC-820 remote (excluding labor),” said Cat Toomey, URC Director of Marketing.

“Automation for All, our recent battle cry, has taken on a whole new meaning when the TRC-820 is bundled with the super-affordable MRX-8 Compact Network System Controller. There is simply no other custom home automation package that comes close,” said Toomey.

Product highlights include:

  • The TRC-820 is Wi-Fi based. This is significant because URC’s previous entry-level handheld Total Control interface communicated via proprietary 2.4 GHz protocol.
  • View video feed from Surveillance Cameras – directly on the LCD!
  • 2-inch, brilliant Color LCD.
  • Familiar URC “GT” User Interface.
  • Full Two-Way integration for URC devices and also 3rd-party devices.
  • User Programmable Shortcuts (grants user quick access to their favorite devices).
