One of the highlights of the AWE autumn Expo was the introduction of URC Total Control 2.0. The upgraded platform has undergone a complete graphical update, and offers installers a new user interface with advanced logic. With Total Control 2.0, integrators can quickly personalise their URC systems, with images to help define a room, scene or background setting. There’s also a fully customisable colour scheme.

Either single devices or scenes can take preference on the interface to meet the individual needs of homeowners. Up to 100 scenes can be pre-programmed for immediate access to a specific command.

“Total Control 2.0 is a dramatic step forward in controls, the biggest and most substantial platform upgrade since its launch,” says Mal Fisher, Chief Technical Officer at AWE. “It brings much greater flexibility, a more attractive aesthetic and faster, higher performance operation to create a significantly better user experience. Combined with its series of recent hardware innovations, this comprehensive software update puts URC streets ahead of the controls competition.“

First seen at at CEDIA 2017, Total Control 2.0 boasts much faster speeds for both installers and end users; downloading to the system, loading new programming and response times have all been improved. And by incorporating “if”, “and”, “then” and “or” commands, Accelerator 2.0, the new software development platform, allows specific and complex statements to be programmed.

At the Expo, AWE introduced a range of controllers, including a 7-inch TDC-7100 desktop controller. The TDC-7100 features a camera and speaker, which work alongside the intercom system.
“The team at URC have done a great job – I love it and am sure installers and consumers will too! Total Control 2.0 is the single, most substantial update to any product range I can recall,” says Stuart Tickle, Managing Director of AWE.

As well as access to the latest releases and URC hardware, AWE also provides training at its Smart Home Academy centre. A URC Total Control specific course is available, with attendees learning the benefits of the Accelerator software and the intricacies of the Total Control system alongside AV devices and third party systems.
