URC launches Total Control 2.0

Plus coast-to-coast dealer training

URC, a global leader in automation and control systems for residential and commercial applications, is pleased to announce the launch of Total Control 2.0.

The launch will be supported with fully-interactive product demonstrations in URC booth #5529 and manufacturer training sessions at CEDIA 2017, September 7-9 in San Diego CA. Additionally, URC will host United States dealer training featuring hands-on programming and third party integration.

“Our Total Control 2.0 training offers systems integrators the opportunity to experience this robust system first hand. Three-day events offering individualized instruction, programming and integration will transform an attendee to a masterful Total Control 2.0 programmer,” said Doug Cole, URC SVP and General Manager.

Total Control 2.0 is a comprehensive upgrade to URC’s flagship automation and control system. This second-generation system elevates Total Control with a next-generation graphic user interface, amazing customization and quick programming – plus an attractive new tabletop touchscreen controller and in-wall touchscreen keypads. Total Control is sold exclusively in the custom installation channel by select URC direct dealers.

Total Control 2.0 is a premium, personalized solution. The family of Total Control 2.0 user interfaces can be programmed with an extensive selection of custom backgrounds, room images and icons. Programmers can upload images from the large URC library, the users’ personal library or photographs taken with a smart device or camera.

“URC dealers and homeowners are amazed when they see their Total Control touchscreens and remotes completely personalized with photos of their home, family, vacations and favorite sports teams,” said Cole.

The robust Total Control system also incorporates a variety of advanced features such as In-App Launching, Remote User Access and Offsite Programming. Additionally, Favorite Channels provides homeowners with quick access to their favorite TV programs with a touch of their URC user interface. Users can also preview current program information before they change the channel.

The foundation of Total Control is a family of next–generation user interfaces. This includes a 7” tabletop touchscreen controller (TDC-7100), 5” and 7” in-wall touchscreens (TKP-5600, TKP-7600) plus premium handheld remotes, keypads and mobile apps. Additionally, Total Control integrates with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control.

“While control systems CAN be controlled with a smartphone or tablet, we believe that the dedicated URC tabletop touchscreen controller should be the centerpiece of a whole-house automation system,” said Chang K. Park, URC Founder and CEO.

Total Control offers whole-house automation and control of up to 32 zones of entertainment, audio, lighting, temperature, security and surveillance. It integrates with TV and AV brands – plus smart home products. Total Control includes proprietary digital music streaming and distribution, lighting control, camera and sensor technology.

Despite all of these rich features, Total Control 2.0 is quick and easy to program. Accelerator 2.0 software enables dealers to easily configure and customize a Total Control system for their customers.
