URC - Universal Remote Controls
URC has sold more than 80 million remote control devices in the last 10 years alone. It is the pioneer
in control technology. The expertise they developed in the sophisticated home theater and
commercial/industrial markets trickles down to every product it makes, including the consumer DIY products and
those made specifically for Subscription Broadcast providers.
The road to perfection just got shorter. As a matter of fact, it’s just around the corner. With the right URC
control you can monitor and adjust the temperature setting on any thermostat in your home. It puts you in command
of your climate and much, much more.
The right URC remote control, the MX-5000 for instance, can be programmed to display an AWAY button that works,
quite simply, like magic. One press of this button adjusts all of the thermostats, turns off lights, lowers shades,
and even makes sure no one left a TV on anywhere in the house!
URC knows a lot about controlling home theaters. They pioneered the category while other companies built
electric razors and toothbrushes and wondered what to use control for. Over the past ten years alone, URC has sold
more than 50 million remote controls into the home theater, consumer, cable TV and OEM markets. They’ve worked hard
to earn a place in your family room.
TED, The Energy Detective, is an easy, lowcost, high-impact solution. Imagine being able to see exactly how much
electricity you are using in real time. And being able to make positive adjustments based on accurate information.
If you dim all the lights 10%, will it make a measurable difference? Which devices in your home are vampires that
always draw electricity, even when not used?
Lighting, Music, HVAC and More...
The right control keypad—a KP-4000 from URC—can be programmed to control all of the lights in your home
(including the light from the sun). The same stylish device—which looks modern and attractive on any wall—also
controls your whole-house music system, heating/air conditioning, and more. The KP-4000 communicates with
everything on your home wireless network. That allows it to control the music collection you keep on your PC (or
iPod when used with URC’s PSX-2 Personal Server). Of course, it also displays lists of artists, albums or songs,
and displays the cover art of the selected album.
Every day you make important decisions based on the most accurate information possible. That said, being away
from your desk shouldn’t mean that you’re cut off from crucial information sources. The same modern, stylish device
that is used to control the boardroom projector, window blinds and ceiling lights can deliver stock quotations and
news in the form of RSS feeds. It even tells you how your favorite sports team is doing—just by pressing the right
spot on the large, colorful touch-screen LCD.

2Gig Technologies unveiled the GC3 home control system at ISC West 2014,
boasting on-board Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a couple of really clever new
features. 2Gig, now owned by Nortek’s Linear, has been a pioneer in the
category of self-contained security/home automation systems. They were
arguably the first to incorporate Z-Wave and traditional security-sensor
RF into a single panel. The company claims it has sold more than 1.5
million systems in just four years. Now 2Gig has done it again with a
few particularly unique features in its latest GoControl panel, the GC3,
demonstrated for the first time at ISC earlier this month.
