Having to manage a Smart connected home through a separate touch-screen control device can be intimidating for some users. The URC MRX-20 Advanced Onscreen Network System Controller changes all that, providing direct control of home AV, lighting, security, HVAC and more via an intuitive TV interface that overlays any connected source. Handling commands for any IP, IR, RS-232, relay or sensor controlled devices, the MRX-20 allows the TV to become the hub of any connected system. Distribution is via AWE.

For ease of installation, the MRX-20 Controller works out of the box with URC’s TRG-100 and TRG-200 gyroscopic remote controls, which offer gesture-style ‘cursor’ motion control. It will also work the traditional hard button input via a TRG-200 remote, if preferred. The system supports one button macros as well as singular commands.

Connectivity includes a trio of HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, plus 10 IR ports, four RS-232 connections, four relay ports, four sensor ports and two 12-volt triggers. For larger installations multiple MRX-20s can be linked together for expanded system control.
