Control4's SR-250 Remote
Control4's SR-250 Remote replaces the model that used to ship with the company's Home Controllers. The remote features ZigBee wireless control, freeing the user from line-of-sight requirements for control, and provides a fully back-lit keypad and an OLED screen that is 40-percent larger than the previous remote. The SR-250 also includes an intelligent motion-sensing system that "wakes" the remote when picked up, turning on the back and screen lights on the SR-250 and making the remote easier to read. Finally, it also includes a beeper function to help the user find a lost remote. Now shipping with the company's HC-300 and HC-500 control systems, the remote's SRP is $199.
