URC MRX-8 Compact Network Whole-House Controller for Total Control Scores Four Key Awards

New feature-rich, scalable controller wins “Best of Show Awards for CEDIA 2015” from TWICE and from Residential Systems, earns “EXCITE Award” from Technology Integrator, and wins a CTA TechHome “Mark of Excellence Award”.

“Four industry awards and all the recognition are frosting on the cake, but the biggest tribute is the way our installers have embraced the MRX-8 and been able to increase their opportunities and projects.”

“Combined with our new TRC-820 Wi-Fi handheld interface, Total Control now presents an entirely new pricing tier never before seen in the whole-house control segment of the home automation industry.”

“At $599 for the MRX-8 with unlimited mobile apps, more of our installers can get into more jobs and become the homeowner’s long-term trusted technology advisor.”

– Cat Toomey, URC Director of Marketing

A panel of anonymous professional integrators and journalist judges decided the Residential Systems and TWICE “Best of Show Awards for CEDIA 2015.” Entries were based on written submissions and visual inspections on the CEDIA show floor. Separately, NAPCO announced the Technology Integrator 2015 EXC!TE Awards just prior to CEDIA, on September 29. CTA (formerly CEA) Mark of Excellence submission winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts for excellence in custom integration and installed technology and will be announced at CES in January 2016.
