URC control solutions and AWE, will once again show the latest AV solutions at ISE 2018. Visitors to the URC stand can expect to learn about URC’s new flagship control solution, Total Control 2.0, as well as MX HomePro, Z-wave integration and the launch of the Kaleidescape 2-way Chowmain module.

Featuring a full graphical update, a new user interface and advanced logic, Total Control 2.0 boasts much faster speeds for both integrators and end users, with downloading to the system, loading new programming, and response time all vastly improved. Integrators can also make adjustments and edits much more quickly and simply, and pollinate across different control devices in the house.

The new Accelerator 2.0 software features advanced logic, enabling integrators to incorporate if”, “and”, “then”, and “or” commands. This allows the system to become more in tune with the life of the homeowner, with in-built commands increasing the autonomous tasks completed by Total Control 2.0.

URC has recently announced the launch of a free demo app for Total Control 2.0, demonstrating the benefits of the system when controlling entertainment, music, lighting and more. The app is available for iOS and Android devices.

The URC MX HomePro is a cloud-based smart home control system that is a great starting point for integrators looking for single room control. The MX HomePro, which incorporates a smart hub, remote control, and mobile app, benefits from a simple installation process. This range fills a gap in the market for an affordable, yet professionally installed solution.

The URC MX HomePro offers users one-touch control of home entertainment and IoT devices including lighting, thermostats, security cameras, and Z-Wave products. The compact H500 smart hub and remote control, which features a two-inch colour LCD screen, connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.  The free to download MX HomePro App offers on-touch system control at home or on the go, and can control multiple locations from a single smart device.

Total Control 2.0 and MX HomePro are both compatible the new Z-Wave gateway. The gateway expands the system control for Z-Wave based products, such as lighting, motorised shades, and security devices, providing two-way control. End user portals can be set up to integrate products and create Z-Wave scenes.

URC has partnered with Chowmain, a software development company based in New Zealand and Australia to develop URC modules to further enhance smart home projects. URC now benefits from Kaleidescape 2-way Chowmain-developed modules, helping integrators to further enhance residential projects. The launch of this exciting addition provides unprecedented access to films and audio through the Kaleidescape system.

Focussing on AV and lighting, Chowmain has created modules for Sky+ HD and Sky Q set top boxes, Oppo Blu-ray players, and Belkin WeMo. An IFTTT module allows integrators to add Amazon Echo, push notifications, messaging, phone calls, Tesla, BMW, other connected cars, Twitter, emails, facial recognition, geofencing / location and so much more to URC.
